Are your Organs Inhibiting Your Muscles?


Are your psoas muscles being inhibited by your dysfunctional kidneys? Are your pec muscles being inhibited by your stomach? Is your back pain a symptom of a dysfunctional organ?

At first, these may seem like bizarre questions, but time and time again, I’ve seen clients with muscles inhibited by a dysfunctional organ and am able to bring these inhibited muscles back to full strength within minutes of treatment.

The nervous system is beautifully complex and strives to function as efficiently as possible. For example, if the nervous system is having problems keeping your kidneys functioning properly, it’s going to start cutting off power to other parts of the body to send more neural drive to the struggling kidneys. Power to the psoas muscles are usually the first thing the nervous system cuts off. If that isn’t enough to boost the struggling organ, the nervous system starts turning off other muscles in the body.

With the help of Sensory Motor Repatterning, I assess all the major muscles in the body to check to see if any are inhibited (experienced as a weak muscle by the client). Any muscles that are inhibited bilaterally (both sides of the body) are likely to be inhibited by an organ or something higher up the nervous system’s hierarchy (e.g. SI joint dysfunction, subluxation of neck vertebrae, cranial bones misalignment etc.).

Sixty percent of the time, muscles can be brought back to functioning normally (with optimal strength) within minutes of treating the organ that is not getting sufficient neural drive.

Whether you are avoiding exercise due to chronic pain, looking to optimize your fitness before your next big triathlon or a coach trying to ensure your pro athletes stay injury free, optimal organ functionality is worth considering!
