Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology TapingApplied Kinesiology borrows from many different disciplines, using muscle testing as a guide for assessing imbalances and determining [patient] care.

The ancient Chinese observed that every muscle in the body links to a specific organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. By testing the strength of its related muscle, we get a glimpse of the condition of that particular organ or tissue.

Simple muscle testing helps us uncover the structural, chemical and environment problem that may be harming body. It can also direct us to the best options to restore your health.

Finding the Problem

First, we review the history of your health situation. This is followed by a thorough physical examination. Instrumentation and laboratory tests may be needed. Then we analyze your posture, the way you walk, turn and bend. By combining these findings with muscle testing, we develop a unique insight into the cause(s) of your problem.

Muscle testing is also used on a visit-to-visit basis to determine where subluxations (bones out of alignment that are realigned by chiropractic adjustments) exist and whether or not they have reduced after a chiropractic adjustment has been applied.

Resolving the Problem

With an understanding of your problem, we select from a variety of healing modalities, which may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Joint mobilization
  • Acupuncture meridian therapy
  • Nutrition supplementation
  • Osteopathic cranial techniques
  • Muscle rehabilitation

As the discipline of Applied Kinesiology has been refined, it has broadened to include the evaluation of vascular, lymphatic systems and cerebrospinal fluid circulation.
