Additional Fixation Patterns
Timothy D. Francis, D.C., D.H.M., DIBAK
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.
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.
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
6. Inferior Gemelus
9. Opponens Pollicis
II. Wrist Flexors
12. Quadratus Femoris
13. Teres Minor
16. Pectoralis Major Sternal
18. Obturator Extensors
19. Peroneus Tertius
20. Internal Obliques
21. Quadratus Lumborum
22. Peroneus Longus/Brevis
24. Anterior Tibialis
25. Toe Extensors
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.
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.
