Abstract
Background: Kinesiology-style manual muscle testing (kMMT) is used to assess neuromusculoskeletal integrity. Some kMMT techniques assess a patient?s response to semantic stimuli. A muscle was able to resist significantly more force following true statements compared to false statements. However, the clinical utility of kMMT has not yet been firmly established. Therefore, the aim of these studies was to estimate the accuracy of kMMT to distinguish true from false statements under varying conditions. Methods: Practitioners who routinely use kMMT and kMMT-na?ve test patients (TPs) were recruited. In all 3 studies TPs were shown pictures on a computer, and were instructed to make simple true or false statements about the picture, after which the kMMT was performed. Study 1 included 48 unique practitioner-TP pairs, whereas study 2 included 20 pairs, and study 3, 20 TPs. In studies 1 and 2, each practitioner performed 40 kMMTs. In study 3, the influence of the practitioner was removed and replaced by a handle-held dynamometer. Conclusion: kMMT when performed by a practitioner may be useful at distinguishing true from false statements, whereas a dynamometer is not.
