Physiotherapy Muscle Testing – Manual Muscle Testing

Muscle testing, or manual muscle testing (MMT), is a procedure done by physiotherapists and other healthcare providers to determine your muscle strength. Muscle strength testing is a part of your physiotherapy evaluation and examination.

In most cases, the physiotherapist performs manual muscle testing to asses for any muscle weakness. In addition, MMT will be done on normal muscles for comparison with the involved muscles. The results of your first manual muscle test will be used to determine possible treatments and will be used as baseline data for future physiotherapy visits or revision of your treatment plan.
