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.

When pregnant, your new baby should be many things to you, but it shouldn't be a pain in the...pelvis! Outside of having a major trauma, such as a fall or car accident, symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), is most commonly associated with being pregnant. Up to a third of pregnant women are affected with this and around one in four women have pain up to four months postpartum, with some even up to twelve months after the birth...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As a woman's body changes during pregnancy, pain often accompanies other physical changes. Among them is symphysis pubis dysfunction. Read Dr. Aimee's article to find out if you have this dysfunction and what you can do about it.

Fibromyalgia (FM) can be characterized by pain that is widespread, not limited to a single anatomical area but rather can affect the arms, legs, trunk, head and neck. This Health Update will concentrate on a few specific vitamin recommendations with the understanding that a “good” diet such as one low in glutens (wheat, oats, barley, rye), rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean meats, with an emphasis of omega 3 rather than omega 6 fatty acids, can be highly effective in and of itself...

The immune system is your body’s defense against invasion by foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells.  It is composed of a complex system of specialized tissues, cells, and organs whose purpose is to recognize and destroy these harmful invaders, thus preventing the development of infection and disease.  Supporting and enhancing your immune system through healthy lifestyle choices as well as implementing select nutrients and herbs, and most of all having a healthy nervous system, will help reduce your susceptibility to colds, the flu, and other infections and diseases...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: People who get adjusted regularly are healthier overall. These patients report they are sick 1.5 times per year as opposed to people who do not get adjusted are sick 7 times per year. Dr. Lynne describes simple ways to have a healthy and fully functioning immune system in this article.

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: This video clip discusses the emerging science of consciousness and the human soul. For over 100 years chiropractors have talked about innate and universal intelligence. This may possibly be the evidence to support their vitalistic philosophy and help others to understand the principles of universal intelligence.

The large majority of people associate chiropractic with neck and back pain. When I tell people I specialize in working with pregnant women and children, I often receive puzzled glances. Common responses are, “I hope we don’t need you” and “Haha, my children don’t have back pain...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Children of all ages often have symptoms, like frequent colds and ear infections, asthma, colic, allergies, etc. These are not diseases, they are red flags that their bodies need some help to normalize itself. Luckily, children do not have years of stress interfering with their healing ability, so Chiropractic care can work wonders for many of these symptoms.

For an athlete, reaction times are everything.  A person’s ability to react quickly in the heat of a contest could have everything to do with whether or not he or his team wins...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: For an athlete, faster reaction times can mean the difference between winning and losing. Dr. Huntsman summarizes the research that shows almost a 2x increase in reaction time for those who were adjusted by a chiropractor versus those who didn't receive any intervention. Being able to react faster to a stimulus is not only beneficial for athletes; it applies to everyday life situations, as well.

Chiropractic has little to do with how one feels and everything to do with how one is expressing life to their fullest potential.  What does this mean?...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: The title, "Chiropractic Is... Life!" truly says it all! Dr. Jack Bourla does a beautiful job explaining the vital life force that exists within all of us and how chiropractic care is necessary. This is a must read for every person seeking to truly heal themselves, from the inside-out.

It seems like everyone is getting bone scans to check the levels of bone loss. Most of these people are told they have bone loss, but they’re not told that it’s quite normal. The recent push for bone mineral density studies – such as the DEXA scan – represents another example of excessive medical testing that leads to over treatment, potentially doing more harm than good...
