    I Also Recommend:

    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. <BR/><BR/>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 The Sixty-Second Motivator to help get clients motivated to do their home exercise programs consistently.

    The bible of muscle testing.

    I first became acquainted with this book in school. It was among several muscle testing books recommended, although we did not have to buy it. I later got a copy and have literally been using it since. This book is absolutely the last word and best of the best when it comes to testing just about any muscle in the human body. It is loaded- and I mean loaded- with pictures that CLEARLY describe to the last detail how to test a muscles strength. Goodies are also included, and I'm talking useful things too, such as innervations of muscles, how to tell if certain 2 joint muscles are tight on someone, or which nerve roots and spinal levels innervate which muscles. I use this book as a reference, mainly when confronted with muscles I don't regularly test and need to look up the proper positioning. So if you have a need to manually test the strength of muscles (nurses, physical therapists. massage therapist, doctors, personal trainers)- then this is your book. Don't waste your time on any others- start with the best.
