  Title Muscle strength testing as a diagnostic screen for supplemental nutrition therapy: A blind study
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1982 Dec;5(4):179-182
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Randomized Controlled Trial

A controlled study of the reliability of clinical muscle testing as an index of nutritional assessment is presented. Both participating clinicans and patients were unaware of the nature of substances being tested for their effect on the latissimus dorsi muscle. Previously identified "weak" muscles were used to observe for a "strengthening" effect as a result of topical and subligual exposure to specific nutrtitional supplements.
