Manual muscle testing was brought to USA by Swedish physiotherapists/medical gymnasts in Boston (mostly at Boston Normal School of Gymnastics BNSG), around 1890.

Manual muscle testing was further researched and developed by American physical therapists in Boston (Harvard university) from 1912 and later by American chiropractors (international college of applied kinesiology) from 1964.
