Balancing Homolateral and Contralateral Muscles

ELIZABETH AND HAMILTON BARHYDT


1991 CONFERENCE PAPER


The idea of Homolateral Muscles has been around for some time (ref. 7). The original idea was that when you rebalance your brain control circuits from homolateral (unilateral) to contralateral (bilateral) using cross crawl with looking up and humming, or other equivalent exercise, there may be some individual muscles that retain a homolateral (unilateral) response when tested directly. A homolateral muscle will test unlocked after contralateral exercise and locked after homolateral exercise.

Similarly when you rebalance your brain control circuits to trilateral balance with the Five Finger Quick Fix, or other equivalent exercise, fully balanced muscles will test locked after either homolateral or contralateral exercise, but there may be some individual muscles that retain a homolateral (unilateral) response (as described above) or a contralateral (bilateral) response (locked after contralateral exercise and unlocked after homolateral exercise).
