Applied kinesiology is a diagnostic method and treatment modality that tests your muscle strength. It’s based on the philosophy that your muscles, organs, and body systems are interconnected and that imbalances and weaknesses in your musculoskeletal system can impact the way your body works.
Applied kinesiology is based on the principle that a problem in one part of your body can cause a malfunction in another part of your body that shares nerves. To use an analogy, consider two appliances plugged into the same electricity source. If one of the devices has a short in its wiring, it can overload the circuit and affect the function of the other appliance.
In your body, the electrical circuit is the nerves that travel through your spine and extend through your muscles and organs. Applied kinesiology evaluates all aspects of your body function and health to identify the condition causing your symptoms and health problems.
The providers certified in applied kinesiology refine their knowledge of the body and its interconnected systems with further study in chiropractic, osteopathy, biochemistry, naturopathy, and more. This diverse knowledge base enables them to develop a comprehensive and holistic understanding of your health.
During your applied kinesiology appointment, your provider evaluates your chemical, mental, and structural wellness. They look for specific patterns of muscle weakness that could be linked to other health issues and symptoms.
Once they understand your symptoms and overall state of being, your provider may manipulate your spine or other joints, deliver massage therapy, or introduce acupuncture to address your muscle weakness and resolve your health issues.
Applied kinesiology uses a holistic approach to assessing and addressing your health and well-being. The diagnostics and treatments are drug-free and designed to not only relieve your pain or other disruptive symptoms but also to heal the underlying condition causing your symptoms. It’s a highly customizable treatment, so you receive therapies selected specifically to address your symptoms.
