DxF Newsletter  August 2012

Welcome to the DxF Newsletter!
We are commited to promoting holistic causal diagnosis for everyone to understand the underlying cause of a condition.

Investigating Causes, Providing Choices

Spotlight: Never delegate understanding

What have we been up to? 
Screening Program: Muscle Strength & Balance
We have designed and begun implementation of a program to present information and screen participants for the strength and balance of 12-24 major muscle groups.   Why would participants want to understand more about their muscle strength & balance?  Maintaiing proper balance of mucle strength around any given joint is critically important  for so many different reasons including: prevention of joint degeneration, reduction of pain, recovery from surgery, increasing energy and maximizing athletic performance.  This is a health parameter that everybody needs to know in depth, yet very few do.  The need is great.

The DxF is currently seeking venues interested in holding these free screening events on a one time or ongoing basis.  Venues desired could be public or private venues in Suffolk County, New York.   Potential venues include: physician's offices, yoga studios, fitness facilities, sporting events, team activities, gymnastic centers, dance studios, etc.  Incorporating these screens into your facilities or events benefits your clients, members or staff. and sets your organization apart from others.

Educational Program: We are currently working on a diagnositic education program leading to certification in Muscle Strength & Balance Testing - Module 1: Major Muscles of the Arms & Legs.  

Why: The balance of muscle strength around any joint is critically important for maximizing athletic performance, prevention and treatment of biomechanical pain and recovery from injury. 
What: is covered?  Participants will learn the rationale and limits of muscle strength & balance testing, potential causes of muscle imbalances, referral procedures and how to test the major muscles of the arms and legs. 
Who: will use the program?  The program will be oriented towards physicians, physical therapists, nurses, trainers, sports coaches and instructors of physical activies such as: yoga, Alexander technique, music teachers, etc.  The program is open for anyone who wants to further their knowledge about everyday performance and overall health. 
Where: The educational component of the program will take place primarily online with participants able to learn at their own pace.  
When: It is anticipated that the course will be offered by the end of 2012.
Fully Certified examiners may be invited to participate in DxF screening events.
