What is Applied Kinesiology and how does it work?
Our nervous system is responsible for controlling and sending signals to all tissues of the body. Muscles are tissues responsible for guarding and protecting our joints. A healthy nervous system allows muscles to have strength and function at their optimal level. Lack of strength or fatigue which people may or may not notice is caused from an imbalanced “Triad of Health”. The imbalance or weakness is a dis-ease on the body creating disease over time. Applied Kinesiology is a unique form of diagnosis in the healing arts, using manual muscle testing to determine anatomical areas of functional weaknesses.
A chiropractor trained in Applied Kinesiology will then use therapeutic techniques such as joint mobilization, chiropractic adjustments, manual muscle therapy, muscle stimulation, meridian therapy, dietary changes, supplement recommendations, stability exercises, and stress-reducing techniques.
