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.

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.

Are drugs really the answer to our healthcare crisis?  The evidence would suggest not.  Use of pharmaceutical drugs has been increasing exponentially since the early 1970s, and yet the life expectancy of Americans has not greatly increased during this time...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Most Americans are taking multiple prescription medications, however with regular chiropractic care, many people report that their use of medications decrease significantly. Chiropractic care is a non-drug, non-surgical approach to health and wellness.

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.

It is all too common today for us to push aside real improvement in your health and opt for the quick fix prescription drugs. Not only can these drugs have adverse side effects, but often don’t even relieve you of your illness...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Remember the carnival game, Whack-A-Mole? Do you know people who seem to take that approach to their health care?  They try to hide symptoms only when they pop up and then move on to the next symptom. That approach will truly turn into an endless game unless you dig further to find the cause of the 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.

Often I see people who have issues with their wrists and have no idea that chiropractic might help- after all, “chiropractors only work with spines, right?”

Working with the spine directly affects the nerve system...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Yes, it's true that Chiropractors are the spine specialists, but that doesn't mean we only work with back pain. Problems in the spine can also lead to other pains, like wrist pain or carpal tunnel.
