Back to Basics: Weak Muscle - Cause or Consequence?


Be sure to register early and plan to attend "Back to Basics: Weak Muscle - Cause or Consequence?" with Dr. Charles Heroux, DC, DIBAK on Thursday, July 20 from 8:10 AM - 9:10 AM.

Dr. Charles Heroux's presentation will bring us back to the roots of manual muscle testing. Since 1964, our AK approach has been to use identification of the cause of the "weak or inhibited" muscles to quickly help improve our patient's condition. With the 5 factors of the IVF, AK has evolved greatly over the years. But sometimes looking for these factors can be a waste of time as the inhibited muscle is just a "consequence" of local structural problems.

Combining great tools and knowledge from Dr. Leaf, Dr. Schmitt and Dr. Rakowski, this presentation will teach you when to choose an Injury Recall Technique, the 5 factors or to simply correct the structure surrounding the inhibited muscle. The goal is to speed up your patient's treatment by having a deeper understanding of the information presented by an inhibited muscle.

Join ICAK-USA and ICAK International in Washington D.C. from July 20-23, 2017, for ICAK-USA's International Meeting.  The meeting offers four days of the latest AK techniques, professional development, and unparalleled networking opportunities for doctors, students and vendors.  The meeting this year offers an unparalleled variety of sessions, workshops, and other events.
