Kinesiology at our Eastbourne Clinic
Daniel Baines, M.OST, of Jane Reynolds & Associates uses Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex therapy - also known as 'muscle testing' - to diagnose and treat problems occurring within your nervous system. Daniel treats a range of muscular pain and tendon issues from our Eastbourne osteopathy clinic, avoiding, in some cases, the need for invasive surgeries or intensive medical treatments.
What is Kinesiology?
Dan uses muscle testing to assess and treat your nervous system. Simply put, we have nerve receptors around our body which continually feed information back to the brain about what is going on. We have nerve receptors that monitor stretch, pain, temperature and even tickle and itch sensations. Once the brain receives this information it then processes it and sends back a message to the muscles to act. For instance, if we burn our hand, the heat receptors in the hand send a message to the brain, and our brain sends a message back to the muscles of the arm and hand saying “WITHDRAW!”. This is a marvellous system, however where we start to encounter problems is when the receptors send back faulty information to the brain. Faulty information in results in faulty information out, which can lead to muscle weakness, pain and unwanted compensation.
How 'Muscle Testing' Can Help
Kinesiology/muscle testing detects the root causes of muscular pain and weakness. By paying close attention to the faulty information offered by the central nervous system, coupled with muscle testing, Daniel can diagnose where the fault lies and work to ensure that the phantom pains can be eliminated.
