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.

It is not news to anyone that most headache sufferers turn to medication for relief. Unfortunately few are aware of how devastating this approach can be. Since the cause of death is not always linked to these medications estimates range from 4000 to 16000  deaths from bleeding every year.  One of the other problems is chronic daily headache which is a condition of daily unrelenting headaches and its number one cause is regular use of medication...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Stop covering up your headache symptoms with medications and address the cause of the pain. A chiropractor can help you change your diet, reduce your stress and most importantly correct spinal misalignments. Combined, your headaches are likely to decrease in frequency and duration because the root cause is being addressed under this holistic health care model. Lifestyle changes along with regular chiropractic care will help you live a longer life free from pain and disease.
