Neuro Skeletal Calibration
The AMN Neuro Skeletal Screen acts to assess and calibrate the motor system with
Assessing the performance of a particular movement only demonstrates the system's
existing ability to execute that motion without rehearsal.
It does not provide specific information on the integration of the neuro-somatic
system underlying that performance.
Via the application of manual muscle testing and specifically sequenced touch testing,
the nervous system will show precisely where brain - body comm's has broken
down. More specifically this indicates a system’s altered bioelectrical state.
Our neurology responds to the bioelectrical state of the body. Touch testing perturbs
the body’s charge.
With this information highlighted to the brain, we can tap on bony sites to initiate a
piezoelectric burst, which in turn sends a wave throughout the liquid crystalline
structure of the organism, which travels as a streaming potential, acting to return
the altered charge of collagen molecules to the physiological norm. The brain and
nervous system responds by adjusting parasympathetic and sympathetic tone.
Grossly speaking, the motor system involves the motor and sensory cortex; the
thalamus and brainstem; visuomotor and vestibular systems; joints; soft and connective
tissues. It is under both volitional and reflexive control.
Reflexively, muscles may be facilitated or inhibited by the gamma motor system.
Such reflexive inhibition can come from the visceral, endocrine, vestibular and
visuomotor systems as well as a host of proprioceptive receptors residing in the
joint, connective and soft tissues.
Non-contact injuries often occur due to muscle imbalance. Calibrating each layer of
the motor system goes a long way to ensuring muscle recruitment is synchronised
and appropriate thus reducing the propensity for non-contact injury to occur.
An accurately calibrated motor system enhances muscular strength, range of motion,
stability, motor control and coordination.
It is from this point that one may fairly screen the body’s capacity to perform an unrehearsed
movement pattern and coach higher-level movement skills.
