What is Applied Kinesiology?

Functional Neurology. Chiropractic is based on the understanding and manipulation of an individuals neurology. Applied Kinesiology is used in the diagnostic and treatment phase to help accurately and efficiently correct the source of their pain.

Functional assessment measures are used in posture, gait analysis, manual muscle testing, range of motion, static palpation, and motion analysis. These measures used along with standard methods of clinical history, physical exam findings, and orthopedic testing help to develop a clinical impression of the unique physiological condition of each patient. All of these measures are used to make an impression of the patient’s functional physiological status. This can then be used as a guide to the application of conservative therapies.

What is Muscle Testing?

Muscle testing is used as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a patient’s body is functioning. When properly applied, the outcome will determine the best form of therapy for the patient.

When a muscle is sore, painful, or simply tests weak, the doctor must then determine why it is not functioning properly. This can be from poor function or injury in the muscle, or from the surrounding musculature. The therapy that will best eliminate the weakness and help the patient is then performed by the doctor. Therapies utilized can include specific joint manipulations or mobilizations, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, and reflex procedures.  By applying the appropriate therapy, the muscle tests strong, the postural distortion can improve, and there will be pain relief.

What Are Our Therapeutic Goals?

  1. To restore a patient’s postural balance, correct gait impairment, and improve range of motion – This relieves pain!

Who Do We Treat?

We treat people, not symptoms!
There are plenty of conditions that we could list here to catch your attention, but the truth of that matter is that any condition that the body develops, given the right circumstances and enough time, can be reversed or at least controlled. The body wants to be healthy, and so it is our job to work with our patients to find the source of whatever it is that is preventing them from enjoying life at the moment, and work with them to reverse the process. Life is too short not to enjoy it, become proactive in how you feel.
