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.

Sometimes, a back problem may really be a front problem.

On the front of every human body within the digestive tract lies the ileocecal valve. Let’s call it ICV for short. This little valve is what separates the small intestine from the large intestine. Its function is to prevent food in the large intestine (meant for evacuation) from refluxing back into the small intestine...

Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffery Tucker: It was not long after beginning her private practice as a chiropractor in 1985, that Dr. Maria Perri realized that for patients to get well, and STAY well, they had to learn how to effectively manage stress and make better health choices more consistently. For this to occur, she felt a mind-body-spirit approach was necessary, one that emphasized a lifestyle of healthy habits.

The underlying goal of upper cervical chiropractic care is to retrain the spine to maintain its proper position so that the body can naturally heal and remedy any problems that may occur. When you first begin seeing a UCC healthcare professional, you will likely have to visit on a fairly frequent basis, but over time, your visits should occur less often and adjustments will likely be quite minor. This means that your spine is, in fact, learning to retain its proper shape and position.


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Properly caring for your body following a chiropractic adjustment is an important step in the process of retraining your spine. At the beginning your chiropractic adjustments may be more frequent but as your body is able to hold the adjustments for longer periods of time and your back bone is in proper alignment, the adjustments can be spaced out. Braces are not put on your teeth to straighten them for one day, it takes time and you have to do your part as well. Similarly the spine needs to be checked for subluxations and adjusted over an extended period to restore proper structure and function. This is key to living a healthy, happy, pain free life!

Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Have your children sit down and watch this short video about how the nervous system functions! The nervous system is how we experience our lives, from tasting the food we eat to looking at a beautiful painting. Optimization of your own nervous system, as well as the nervous system of each of your family members, is critical to living a healthy and happy life.

by Dr. Graeme Gibson, DC

Growing up in a family of 6, at last count, has been a blessing and a curse from the moment I heard about my first chiropractic "miracle."  The greatest thing about my situation is that I was allowed to grow up with a mind that was open just enough so my brain didn't fall out...

 

Editor's Note from Abbey Denaro: Many healing professions exist and are proven by science, clinical studies, and patient experiences, yet who is teaching most Americans about health? Most likely from those 30-second drug prescription commercials, sponsored by a billion-dollar corrupt industry. Chiropractors are often labeled as “quacks” and the successful and natural healing results are coined as “anecodotes”. Dr. Graeme Gibson discusses this topic and urges healing professionals to be the educators on health.

by Dr. Paul Turner, B App Sc(Osteopathy)

Why all the focus on pain and symptoms? I feel one of the issues for lack of success with chronic pain is just this?  We spend so much time researching treatments and methods that look at pain/symptoms and tissues causing pain that we miss uncovering all the predisposing and causative patterns of dysfunction setting up the area/tissues causing symptoms (or otherwise slowing recovery) in the first place...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Pain is a symptom that indicates something is wrong within our bodies. Pain is not a condition and cannot be treated as a condition by simply covering it up. Dr. Paul Turner explains chronic pain like tangled fishing line - it must be untangled and corrected, rather than just pulling on one end.

The definition is pretty self-explanatory. Stress is a VERY important factor in the health and wellness of your body. The presence of stress can impede the body’s ability to heal and function for day to day living.  Stress causes the body to do a few things. First, it can cause the body to use the “Sympathetic Nervous System” more often than it should...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: For most, this time of year is synonymous with the word "stress". You may think it's okay because everyone else seems to be dealing with similar issues, but Dr. Marini discusses the types of stress, the consequences, and how to manage it.

As American women are well aware, there has been a great deal of controversy lately about birth control and the freedom of women to make decisions about their reproductive health. Ina May Gaskin, founder of the Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee and author of numerous books about how to achieve a safe home birth, argues that women’s choices are limited when they decide to deliver a child, as well...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As with any other type of care, women have a choice and have always had a choice for the type of birthing experience they want. Whether you feel more comfortable in a hospital setting or in the comfort of your own home, it is up to you. Just make sure you are educated about the pro's and con's of both situations. Home births are great if you wish to have your chiropractor present to help support you and your newborn.
