All Things Healing has editors that provide useful information about applied kinesiology chiropractics. Spiritual & Healing Practices: Chiropractic & Applied Kinesiology - Beyond conventional healing methods, there are different healing practices that chiropractors use to treat diseases. The Applied Kinesiology chiropractic method is of the various techniques chiropractors use in diagnosing health problems, especially those related to the muscles. Since chiropractors mainly focus on the musculoskeletal system, the treatments associated with it also deal with muscular issues. Chiropractic applied kinesiology, for one, involves manual muscle testing to evaluate the functional status of the body. Here, the three aspects of health are observed: the structural, chemical and mental. The applied kinesiology chiropractic technique is based on the premise that every organ dysfunction is related to a weakness in a specific corresponding muscle. When you visit your chiropractor and undergo chiropractic applied kinesiology method, your chiropractor will apply force to each target muscle or muscle group, and you’ll be asked to resist that force, during which the response of your muscles will be evaluated. An absence of smooth response usually means there is a problem or imbalance in the body. Such imbalance in the body is corrected using manual pressure on the specific muscle. Other kinds of treatments may also be employed alongside it such as joint manipulation and mobilization, clinical nutrition, dietary counseling and myofascial, cranial and meridian therapies. A generous amount of chiropractic information states that applied kinesiology is used as an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to healthcare. In fact, chiropractors are not the only ones who employ such healing practice; other professionals such as naturopaths, medical doctors, dentists, nutritionists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and nurse practitioners use it too. According to chiropractic news, applied kinesiology is also based on the philosophies of other holistic therapies, such as osteopathy, meridian therapy, and physical manipulation.

In my opinion, quality chiropractic care begins with combining soft-tissue techniques with joint manipulation and rehabilitation exercise. Muscles move bones. If you are not addressing the dysfunction in the muscles, your adjusting is much less likely to have long-term success. This article, the first in a series on soft-tissue techniques, reviews some of soft-tissue methods I have been introduced to over the past 35 years...


Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffrey Tucker: Current concepts look at the body as inter-related structures and the myofascial system or soft-tissues, are getting a lot of attention in the body-worker community. In Dr. Heller’s article he explains the different methods and soft tissue techniques that a Chiropractor could use with his/her patients.

It happened again last week. There, on the evening news was a postgraduate degreed person wearing a white lab coat and looking quite proper, being asked her opinion about some new, non-establishment approach to health care. Then she said it. And she said it so typically, in an arrogant, self-righteous, almost disgusted tone, "There is no scientific evidence that the procedure has any value."...





Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Six years ago a chiropractic student at the time created an international competition for other chiropractic students. The goal is to get students working on their health talks and practicing the chiropractic story. This video features Life West Chiropractic College student Brett Jones giving his passionate and inspired talk on basic chiropractic principles. This is a perfect example of how fired up students are about the chiropractic story! Imagine the world if every man, woman and child had their spines checked for subluxation... it would be a beautiful and peaceful place. Share this with your children and plant the seed of them becoming a doctor of cause...a Doctor of Chiropractic!

Weight-bearing exercises are frequently used to train and strengthen muscles of the hip. These exercises have been advocated in the rehabilitation of a variety of hip and knee dysfunctions. Limited evidence is available to describe the level of muscle activation occurring with specific weight-bearing exercises...


Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffrey Tucker: Proprioceptive training is another term for proprioceptive, vestibular and visual systems or PVV. Proprioception is the language/information the central nervous system uses to decide position and movements. Training this system helps drive the body to learn and utilize information to improve (a) your overall muscular activity and (b) the range of motion in your joints and (c) your body posture.

I have always considered myself an adventurous guy. So before graduation day I spent some time looking at job positions overseas. I also spoke with a friend who was doing just that, and looked at the handful of adds available. I sent out my CV to a few DCs and then promptly put it in the back of my mind. Three months later, I received a call from a doctor in Peru...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Leaving the comfort of school and friends is difficult enough especially when you are becoming a new doctor. There are so many decisions to make, like starting your own practice, partnership, associateship or you can leave the country and have a totally different experience. That is exactly what Dr. Jachin Black decided to do after graduating chiropractic college late last year. He is currently practicing in Peru and shares the process he went through making this life altering decision and the impact it has had on his life. Chiropractic is not recognized in many countries around the globe so having caring DCs like Dr. Black is important to the advancement of the profession throughout the world.

Editor's Note Dr. Jeffery Tucker: The Egosque Method with it's corresponding corrective exercises create a cohesive flexibility and core training system. This video provides a simple explanation of the body's mechanical design. The Egosque Method works well with people that have low back pain and individuals trying to improve there active lifestyle or fitness goals. A focal point of any musculoskeletal pain is that significant limitations or right and left side imbalances should not be overlooked. The body should be free of restrictions and imbalances. Watch this to learn about posture and how the body commonly compensates.
