  Title The ileocecal valve point and muscle testing: a possible mechanism of action [commentary]
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2006 Dec;36(4):122-126
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The muscle test procedure is a common test used by manual therapists. It is primarily used for the determination of muscle strength in orthopaedic testing, but its application is not limited to such use. The muscle test procedure has acquired other uses as a part of diagnostic systems that include largely multi-step diagnostic protocols of techniques such as Neuro-emotional Technique (NET) and Applied Kinesiology (AK), amongst other techniques. In this paper, we will attempt to synthesise new research that provides evidence for the existence of a mechanism to explain this process. Discussion of this literature is important in light of an explanation of a mechanism that has hitherto not been explained adequately in terms of published peer-reviewed literature.
