All physical health practitioners use afferent input.
Every time we touch, massage, adjust, mobilise, manipulate, needle, exercise or rehab a patient, we’re doing afferent input.
Any change detected by proprioceptors, changes afferent input.
But what if you could do it consciously, deliberately and predictably?
You would no longer wonder about those patients who just refuse to get better despite the best treatment you can provide.
Ultimately, sensory input informs and controls motor output – largely via cord-based reflexes.
This course features 7 hours of video (7 hours CPD) in 10 bite-sized lessons created and presented by Simon King, the Founder of the Association of Certified Afferentologists.
They are a mixture of lecture, clinical demonstration and seminar footage which teaches any health practitioner to assess and care for difficult and complex patients with ease, in accordance with their professional qualification.
“The most logical and rational approach to muscle testing, diagnosis and patient betterment that I have read, listened to or practiced.”
Just wanted to thank you for the great courses, and I am using the knowledge from the courses on every patient I have, and they couldn’t be happier. This really is accelerates the Philosophy from structure to function.
Life changing is all I can say, phenomenal results and happy patients. Never been so content as a practitioner as I have been since learning these skills, thank you.
Simon King is a clinician who has been in practice 32 years and tested over 6 million muscles.
In the early days, testing muscles just seemed the right thing to do. It gave him the advantage of being able to check for pateint improvement immediately.
Little did he know then, that the muscle tone was the key to health and longevity.
In early May 2000, he went back to the textbooks and re-learned the neurology of muscles, specifically how muscle tone was controlled by muscle spindles and anterior motor neurons. He wondered if what really made muscles weak was not “energy” but changes in sensory input.
Verifying this idea thousands of time has lead to a robust theory which is indisputable because it is the basis of all movement of all vertebrates.
Since then he has taught the paradigm and the techniques that derive from it to over a thousand practitioners, mainly chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists and almost universally, they find that these ideas have made their practice easier and more enjoyable while getting their patients better results faster.
