Additional Fixation Patterns

Timothy D. Francis, D.C., D.H.M., DIBAK

Abstract

Fixation patterns within the spine have been part of applied kinesiology for a long time. These patterns are specific bilateral muscle testing responses due to a locking together of two or more vertebrae. This paper discusses fixation patterns, which are the observations of this author.

Introduction

Spinal fixations cause a predictable, observable bilateral muscle response in the body. “Fixations are the body’s attempt to stop dural torque.” (Leaf). These are two or more vertebral segments that are locked together. This paper presents fixation patterns hitherto never before discussed.

Discussion

The following spinal fixation patterns have been discovered over the past several years in this author’s experience.

Bilateral Muscle Weakness
1. Upper Trapezius
2. Finger Flexors
3. Triceps Upper
4. Subclavius

Spinal Area
Occiput
Occiput
Upper Cervicals
Upper Cervicals/Cervico
Thoracic/Upper Thoracic

5. Sartorius
6. Inferior Gemelus

Upper Cervical/Lumbar/Iliac
Upper Cervical/Lower
Thoracic/Sacral

7. Popliteus
8. Biceps
9. Opponens Pollicis
10. Brachioradfalii
II. Wrist Flexors
12. Quadratus Femoris
13. Teres Minor
14. Subscapularis
15. Coracobrachialis
16. Pectoralis Major Sternal
17. Pyramidalis
18. Obturator Extensors

Upper Cervicals
Mid-Cervicals
Mid-Cervicals
Lower-Cervicals

Lower Thoracic
Lower Thoracic/Lumbar
Sacral/Iliac

19. Peroneus Tertius

Lower Thoracic/Sacral
Iliac

20. Internal Obliques
21. Quadratus Lumborum
22. Peroneus Longus/Brevis
23. Piriformis
24. Anterior Tibialis
25. Toe Extensors
26. Adductors

Lumbar

Lumbar/Sacral/Iliac/Sacra1
Sacral
Sacral/Iliac
25. Toe Extensors Sacral/Iliac
26. Adductors Iliac

These fixation patterns are corrected in the previously detailed procedure outlined by Dr. Goodheart. Additional nutritional correlations have also been discovered. In descending order of frequency, these are zinc, potassium, boron, and molybdenum.

Conclusion

These new fixation patterns are intended as an addendum to the original fixation patterns discussed by Dr. Goodheart. This author has found them to be of value clinically.
