The most important diagnostic instrument for all manual therapy procedures is the examination of muscle function. The muscle descriptions (approx. 170 muscles) are structured according to a uniform structure, which makes it easier to look up individual aspects. The important illustrations are concentrated on two pages.
- Origin, approach and function: Their knowledge is important for the correct positioning of the body part moved by the muscle and for the application of the correct test vector.
- A sign of weakness: These are listed because the evaluation of a muscle involves not only manual testing but also postural analysis.
- Test: The test is to be started by the patient and you as the examiner must explain the movement the patient is to perform to the patient. The arrows in the illustrations therefore always describe the patient's action.
- The seven factors of the viscerosomatic system include motor innervation and visceroparietal reflex relationship, neurolymphatic reflex anterior and posterior, neurovascular reflexes, nutrient relationship, pathway and organ relationship.
- Drainage point (sedation point, S): It is specified for checking the standard reaction.
- Filling point (toning point, T): The therapy localization of the filling point normalizes a functional muscle inhibition, if a void situation in the assigned pathway also causes the inhibition.
- SR assignment: Painful and tense are not only trigger points palpable, but also the points or zones of the spondylogenic reflex syndrome, which have to be differentiated diagnostically from the former.
- Trigger points: The most frequent trigger points of the respective muscle are related to the acupuncture points in their vicinity. The pain is transmitted as shown in the illustrations.
- Tendinomuscular pathway, effective distant points: This is the area of acupuncture points in the periphery, which are usually located on the conductive pathway, which has a segmental, topographical relationship to the muscle. The entire muscle function chain can be therapeutically influenced via these remote points.
- Postisometric Relaxation (PIR): This describes the procedure for each muscle. The arrows always indicate the contraction vector.
