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 seems like everyone is getting bone scans to check the levels of bone loss. Most of these people are told they have bone loss, but they’re not told that it’s quite normal. The recent push for bone mineral density studies – such as the DEXA scan – represents another example of excessive medical testing that leads to over treatment, potentially doing more harm than good...

It’s been estimated that 50% of military helicopter pilots experience neck pain, likely due to the postural demands and helmet-mounted technology. Physical therapist researchers in Sweden investigated the effectiveness of a neck exercise program for Swedish Air Force helicopter pilots and reported their findings in Spine. They measured the incidence of neck pain and EMG activity of neck muscles during a cranio-cervical flexion test in 68 active-duty pilots that were randomly assigned to an exercise or control group...

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: This is a story of a brave woman who was diagnosed with a Hepatic Adenoma, yet denied surgery and allowed her body to heal itself.

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.

What does broccoli, exercise, and chiropractic care have in common?  All three are very beneficial for your health and when used regularly are part of an overall healthy lifestyle.

The bigger picture however, is that all three of these things- eating broccoli and other greens regularly, exercising on a regular basis, and regular chiropractic care are all an individual’s choice...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: If you exercised everyday for 4 weeks and then stopped abruptly, would you remain fit and healthy for the rest of your life? "No" is the clear answer and is just common sense. The same goes for Chiropractic care and the health of your spine and nerves. Like exercise, it's your decision when it comes to just how healthy you want to be.

Lights went out. Battery backups beeped. Fish tanks grinded to a halt.

The power went out at my house.

I was blessed with the opportunity to "grow up" living next door to Dr. George Goodheart, the "discoverer" and initial developer of applied kinesiology and one of recent history's greatest healers.
