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.

The prescription and use of orthotics is a hot topic. Some physicians don’t appreciate that fact that I think orthotics are expensive pieces of carbon graphite, neoprene, and other material that most often serve as a disservice to the patient. My stance on orthotics is such due to how I evaluate, treat, and manage patients. It is a 100 percent holistic approach...

Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffery Tucker: In this article by Dr. Stephen Gangemi, he discusses his belief that foot orthotics are not natural and are not well understood by doctors and patients. He challenges mainstream medical thought that it is beneficial to control the feet with orthotics. Many doctors feel that the feet are the starting point of a body that's out of balance and that by using an orthotic it can help everything from the feet all the way up to a patient's neck. Dr. Gangemi is all about whole body care and functional therapy. I think you'll like his ideas and approach to patient care. I'll try to be fair and in a future article include the viewpoint of foot orthotics for biomechanical improvement.

From Dr. Jeffery Tucker: Tim Tyler, PT, ATC, developed an effective exercise treatment for tennis elbow. The Flex Bar is a flexible rubber bar (made by Thera-band) that offers a practical way to overload the wrist extensors to provide tennis elbow sufferers with the same benefits as isolated eccentric training done with expensive devices or heavy weights. Chiropractors can provide therapy for tennis elbow and teach you how to perform the “Tyler Twist” - the isolated eccentric wrist-extensor strengthening exercise designed to overload the muscles.  Consult your doctor of chiropractic to find out more...

Today, children have a lot of extra pressure placed on them. They are expected to learn how to read, write, and potty train at extremely young ages. Potty training occurs at different ages for each individual child and Enuresis (bedwetting) is considered normal up until around the age of five years old... 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Why do some children understand potty training early on and for others, it takes longer? It is agreed upon by chiropractors and medical doctors that it is a neurological issue, so having a child's spine checked for nervous system interference is a great step in the right direction for helping your child.

I get regular emails from Kaiser Permanente as my family has used the crisis medical care company, when in crisis, for many years happily and with good results. The headline of today's email read, Is Exercise the New Miracle Drug?...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Innately we know our bodies were meant to move. Dr. Herby Bell discusses how HMOs are finally grasping this idea and proclaiming it to be a miracle, breakthrough, discovery. Daily movement is part of a chiropractic lifestyle and should be practiced daily.

Modern obstetrics may damage the baby’s neurospinal system. Chiropractors have a moral responsibility to tell the public about the abuses of modern birth practices...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Parents often wonder why their child should have their spine evaluated by a chiropractor. How could a child's spine have subluxations? In this article Dr. Arno Burnier details the trauma many children go through during the delivery process in so-called modern hospital births. Between 90 to 140 pounds of pressure is often used on the baby's head and neck causing subluxations of the cervical spine. If you are a parent, this is an article you must read!
