AK is a diagnostic system which evaluates health needs using neurological muscle tests. Learn about the wonderful benefits of chiropractic applied kinesiology through chiropractic news & information. 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.

We’ve grown accustomed to taking pills when we feel bad–for headaches, insomnia, mild depression, indigestion, and the aches and pains of aging, to name a few common complaints. We’re so used to automatically reaching into our medicine cabinets for quick relief that we don’t stop to ask an obvious question: What’s causing the discomfort?


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: The "quick fix" of opening the medicine cabinet for the instant gratification of symptom relief is causing far more damage to your body than you may realize. Instead of treating symptoms by masking them with drugs, go to a chiropractor and get your spine checked for spinal subluxations that are causing disease.

Going through chiropractic college friends and family often call and write asking “is this normal?” or “I swear I was not doing anything and then I heard this weird popping sound…” and finally, “I have this crick in my back, can chiropractic help?” Below is an answer I wrote to an old friend who had messaged me with one of these common questions, she had hurt her back and it was impacting her activities of daily living...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: At least 80% of Americans will experience low back pain in their lifetime. The most cost effective and safest approach to dealing with this sometimes extremely debilitating health concern is getting adjusted by a chiropractor.

There are three ways that vertebral subluxations can occur in the spine . These are trauma, toxins and negative thoughts (autosuggestions). Traumas can range from being in a car accident in which a person experiences a whip lash injury to something that seems minor like every day wear and tear through repetitive motions of daily life...

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: No matter how big or small the trauma the body will protect its self from further injury by creating a grid like matrix in the soft tissue structures which ultimately leads to shortening of the muscles. The increased muscle tension can cause vertebra to be pulled out of alignment causing segmental dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore proper function to the spine and therefore the nervous system is able to flow freely and the body can function at a more optimal level.

Asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness.  More than five million children under the age of 18 are affected in the United States today.  Children suffering from asthma often miss 10 or more days of school annually.  Those with severe cases often miss up to 30 days per year.


Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Childhood Asthma is the number 1 reason for kids in the United States to miss school and it accounts for millions of hospital visits each year. Research shows that breast feeding exclusively the first four to six months of life will dramatically decrease the risk of Asthma. If you, or your child, suffer with Asthma it is critical to eat a proper diet and have your spine regularly adjusted by a chiropractor. Spinal adjustments enhance the immune system's function and allow for the innate healing mechanisms of the body to work properly.



Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: When you think of a chiropractor, do you think of neck and back pain or do you think of wellness for your nerve system? In this video, Dr. Dane Donohue explains how Chiropractic works and introduces his program, 8 Weeks to Wellness.

The key issue being left out of the continuing health care discussions – not only by the media but by almost all involved – is the question of who’s really left behind. This question is not addressed by making sure most people have insurance – it actually makes it worse. Just as serious a problem is who’s NOT left behind...

Could a love of high heels be the bearer of years of pain? The abnormal weight-bearing posture when wearing high heels can strain the lower back and neck, and increase pressure on the feet, ankles and knees...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Women regularly curse the person who invented high heels, yet we still wear them despite the pain! Here are some tips on how to shop for the right shoes and how to avoid back problems from wearing the wrong shoe.

It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting — in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home — you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death...


Editor's Note: Prevention is ALWAYS better than cure. This article is by biologist and NY Times columnist, Olivia Judson, which she wrote on inactivity last year. I feel this can be very useful for doctors and patients. Waiting for the problem to find you first, before seeking out the best ways to alleviate it, is far from ideal. The last thing you want is to put yourself at risk and stopping you from doing what you love most. Enjoy!




Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: You may recognize him as the blue Wiggle who entertains your children, but he is also one of many who have experienced the amazing powers of the chiropractic adjustment. Anthony Field was about to give up his time with the Wiggles because his chronic pain was so severe. Once he found Chiropractic, his life was restored and is now a spokesperson for Chiropractic.

In today’s world would you want to be normal or average? Sounds good when compared to abnormal or below average but what is average or normal today?...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: It is not always easy to quantify what normal is and it leaves people wondering if they are in fact normal themselves. Dr. Buckley describes some "normal" American eating and exercise habits that actually have a negative impact on health and leave you realizing you do not want to be normal! Proper nutrition, exercise and regular chiropractic care can help you to live a better and longer life. Do not settle for just being a normal American!

While all doctors ultimately want what is best for their patients sometimes the concept of collaboration isn’t always considered.  Historically chiropractors and dentists would each help treat jaw or TMJ related pain or disorders (TMD) on an individual basis helping patients as best as possible.  However new research has been showing some fascinating relationships between how the body functions from a postural standpoint and how the jaw can respond to posture or affect it.


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Do you ever wonder why your TMJ is in chronic pain or why your partner snores? Did you know that poor posture can impact your teeth and a poor bite can negatively impact your posture? Having a comprehensive team of health care providers such as chiropractors and dentist may be the solution for you. A holistic approach to your health will help you live a happier, healthier life that is free from pain and discomfort.
