Applied Kinesiology: 

  • Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis.
  • AK, is a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts and has become a dynamic movement in health care in its relatively short existence.
  • Applied Kinesiology interactive assessment procedures represent a form of functional biomechanical and functional neurologic evaluation.
  • The term “functional biomechanics” refers to the clinical assessment of posture, organized motion such as in gait, and ranges of motion.
  • During a “functional neurologic” evaluation, muscle tests are used to monitor the physiologic response to a physical, chemical or mental stimulus.
  • Doctors using applied kinesiology have a distinct advantage over other practitioners as they have specific diagnostic tools to determine the best therapy for the patient.

  • Also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the body’s muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine.
  • Interference with these systems impairs the body’s normal functions and lowers its resistance to disease.
  • Spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system.
  • Skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain
  • Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities.
