A book that has stood the test of time. Now in its 5th edition, this book has become “thee” muscle testing book to have. Who’s it for? Anyone who has a need to be able to MANUAL muscle test any of the body’s muscles. This would include such professionals as doctors, nurses, physical therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, etc.How does the book work? Well, you look up the particular muscle you want to test, look at the picture of the test position, and then simply apply manual pressure to the limb in the instructed direction. If it sounds easy, it is the way this book shows you- included are dozens and dozens of GREAT pictures that show you precisely what to do. So, if you have a need to regularly test muscles, I highly recommend you get this book- it’s a little bit more expensive than some of the other muscle testing books, but its the best I’ve come across so far- in fact it sits right on my desk for reference. Health professionals might also be interested in to help get clients motivated to do their home exercise programs consistently.

It can help professionals or laypeople discover muscular imbalances, injuries and causes of pain in their bodies or the bodies of others.It is clearly and well presented, very well-researched and accepted in the medical field. My main profession is fitness and health trainer and this book is a tremendous contribution to my practice.
