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.

"For many people, prescription bone-building medicines should be a last resort," said Karen Chapman-Novakofski, a University of Illinois professor of nutrition and co-author of a literature review published in the May 2011 issue of Nutrients...


Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffery Tucker: Plawecki and Chapman-Novakofski set out to determine the impact of dietary, supplemental, and educational interventions over the last 10 years about osteoporosis and reached their conclusions after reviewing 219 articles in scientific journals...

We all have been told that knuckle cracking is bad for our hands, and we will end up with “knobbly” fingers when we get old. So is mum right again? Or is this a myth?...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: We know that cracking our fingers doesn’t cause “knobbly” hands, like we may have been told when we were young. Does that mean that cracking your own back and neck is okay too? Dr. Michelle Zhou explains the structural differences and the consequences of cracking yourself versus a trained Chiropractor providing a specific, gentle, and safe adjustment.




Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: This chiropractic montage is a series of news clips and ends with famous people speaking about chiropractic care. It demonstrates how chiropractic can help with many conditions however chiropractors do not claim to cure any single condition. Chiropractors know that the body has an innate ability to self heal and regulate. Watch this video to hear what others are saying about chiropractic!




by Dr. Irma Greco, DC

Many of my patients have autoimmune diseases that predispose them to steroid medication exposure, so bone issues are always a topic that comes up over and over again in my clinic. Many of these patients have had bone mineral density studies that show osteopenia or osteoporosis, which means varying levels of bone thinning are already in place...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Many people view Chiropractors as “Bone Doctors”. While the Chiropractic profession works with the whole body, we do have extensive training on bones and how important it is that they remain healthy and strong. In this article, Dr. Greco exposes how many medications are causing osteoporosis and provides nutritional advice and suggestions for altering the negative effects of medications you may be taking.

One of the primary reasons behind the enduring rift between conventional medical science and chiropractic is the contrasting nature of their basic philosophies. Philosophical "truths" in Western civilization are validated through a process employing scientific methodology. Chiropractic has been at a distinct disadvantage in acquiring recognition as a valid healing art. However, the leading edge of cellular and molecular biology research is heralding a radical departure from its traditional theories and is in turn, creating a new philosophy...

Allergy: (n) – an exaggerated immune response or reaction to substances that are generally not harmful.   National Institute of Health
It is a simple definition if there ever was one. However, it’s far more complicated than people think. In fact, many doctors don’t understand the complexity behind it. It is an exaggerated response to something benign...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Allergies are so common that sometimes we forget that it means something is wrong. Over half of all Americans have at least one allergy and it costs our health care system $7.9 billion. If you or someone you know has an allergy, read Dr. Marini’s article and find out more about natural ways to take control of your health.



by Jeffrey Tucker, DC, DACRB,

Bone health should be on the minds of both men and women. Osteoporosis is the most prevalent bone disease in the world. Nearly 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. Another 34 million individuals are estimated to have low bone density and are headed on the path to osteoporosis. Loss of bone mass is a marker of aging. Adults lose 1% of bone mass each year...

Life is a learning experience. Stressors abound and especially during our early years we have a tendency towards accidents and trauma. First learning to walk, then going up and down stairs, and starting to ride a bike... scabs and bruises were likely a part of your childhood. Part of youth is learning the limits of what our bodies can and cannot do.



Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Have you ever left the chiropractor's office and thought to yourself, "wow, I never realized those two things were related but it makes sense and I feel so much better"?This frequently happens to many chiropractic patients because chiropractors address and correct the root cause of health concerns. In this article Dr. Brant Pedersen tells his story of falling out a window when he was young, struggling with some health concerns as a teenager and then finally receiving chiropractic care and nutritional advice that changed his life. It made such a profound impression that he decided to become a chiropractor himself, so that he can  help others optimize their lives.


by Dr. Ogi Ressel, DC

Your child is hot, flushed, glassy-eyed and obviously not well. These signs and symptoms catch the attention of a mother, and in America women make most of the healthcare related decisions in the family. You immediately know your child has a FEVER, you are very concerned and  feel a little bit of panic setting in. After all, you have been carefully trained to think that fever is actually something that should be treated.


Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Concerned about your child's temperature? Do you think that they have a fever and that you have to get rid of their symptoms as soon as possible? Dr. Ogi Ressel explains the mechanism of a fever and how the body is actually expressing health when it raises body temperature. Fever is a good thing, the body is self regulating, and killing off foreign invaders. Suppressing this mechanism can actually do more harm than good. Learning how to support your child during these times instead of treating their symptoms will lead to an overall healthier child.

Knee pain is a common complaint of many runners, leading them to succumb to pain medication, anti-inflammatories, knee braces and other contraptions just to push through the miles. From elite runners to fitness walkers, an individual is many times told they have bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, chondromalacia patellae, iliotibial band frictional syndrome, or some other diagnosis due to something they've done wrong, or overdone...



by Abbey Denaro BS, CPT, Chiropractic Intern

Why would a child need to see a chiropractor? Children are healthy and should not have any pain, right? Children do not have years of bad posture imparting unnecessary pressure on their spine. They do not have stress from a ten-hour workday that gives them tension headaches, as do some adults...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: In this article Chiropractic Intern Abbey Denaro discusses the importance of chiropractic care for children. People often think that pediatric patients do not need chiropractic care when in fact the birthing process alone can be extremely traumatic on the child's spine and central nervous system. This article provides information on why you should have your child's spine evaluated for subluxations and how children may benefit from chiropractic adjustments.

ATH Co-Editor of Chiropractic

Recently, while writing in my gratitude journal, I wrote “I am grateful for my hands which allow me to see and help people heal themselves,” As a chiropractor, hands are the greatest tools you have. They must be strong, protected, healthy and respected. As someone who is VI my hands are even more important to me. I literally use them to see the world around me...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Chiropractors have the highest patient satisfaction ratings amongst health care providers. This is not only because of their ability to communicate but it is also believed to be due to the laying on of hands. Human touch can have a profound impact on healing and is well documented in the literature. Healing begins during careful palpation of the spine and is greatly enhanced with a specific spinal adjustment by a chiropractor.
