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.

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.

One of the most common reasons for parents to take their children to the pediatrician is for chronic ear infections. This accounts for approximately 35% of all childhood visits to the medical doctor [1]. Although usually related to a virus, anti-biotics are prescribed only to cause further damage to the child’s delicate immune system. This occurs when anti-biotics are over prescribed, killing important gut flora, which makes up approximately 80% of the body’s immune system...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Antibiotics are the most common method for attempting to treat an ear infection. How many children do you know who get recurrent ear infections? How many times are the doctors going to prescribe the antibiotics? Not only are the drugs not getting to the cause of the problem, but they are hurting the child, as well. Elizabeth explains the mechanism for ear infections and why Chiropractic is a better solution.

I am here today, living out my dreams and about to take the trip of a lifetime, because of efforts that all of the people closest to me have made in my life...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Live life as a journey, not a destination is the message from Dr. Julia Pinkerton. Take time to literally stop and smell the roses, to travel and truly experience your world. Failure is an important part of life and what matters is what you learn from your failures. If you are able to turn challenges into something positive then you will find true happiness.

Every day you have a new opportunity to make decisions that will determine your destiny. When it comes to your physical health there are many easy things you can do on a daily basis that can determine whether your destiny will be successful or a struggle. Here is a great place to start.


Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: If you want to get better, ask better questions. Start asking your health related questions in a "how" and "what" format and begin to take responsibility for your own life and health.

We’ve grown accustomed to taking pills when we feel bad–for headaches, insomnia, mild depression, indigestion, and the aches and pains of aging, to name a few common complaints. We’re so used to automatically reaching into our medicine cabinets for quick relief that we don’t stop to ask an obvious question: What’s causing the discomfort?


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: The "quick fix" of opening the medicine cabinet for the instant gratification of symptom relief is causing far more damage to your body than you may realize. Instead of treating symptoms by masking them with drugs, go to a chiropractor and get your spine checked for spinal subluxations that are causing disease.

Going through chiropractic college friends and family often call and write asking “is this normal?” or “I swear I was not doing anything and then I heard this weird popping sound…” and finally, “I have this crick in my back, can chiropractic help?” Below is an answer I wrote to an old friend who had messaged me with one of these common questions, she had hurt her back and it was impacting her activities of daily living...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: At least 80% of Americans will experience low back pain in their lifetime. The most cost effective and safest approach to dealing with this sometimes extremely debilitating health concern is getting adjusted by a chiropractor.

There are three ways that vertebral subluxations can occur in the spine . These are trauma, toxins and negative thoughts (autosuggestions). Traumas can range from being in a car accident in which a person experiences a whip lash injury to something that seems minor like every day wear and tear through repetitive motions of daily life...

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: No matter how big or small the trauma the body will protect its self from further injury by creating a grid like matrix in the soft tissue structures which ultimately leads to shortening of the muscles. The increased muscle tension can cause vertebra to be pulled out of alignment causing segmental dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore proper function to the spine and therefore the nervous system is able to flow freely and the body can function at a more optimal level.

Asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness.  More than five million children under the age of 18 are affected in the United States today.  Children suffering from asthma often miss 10 or more days of school annually.  Those with severe cases often miss up to 30 days per year.


Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Childhood Asthma is the number 1 reason for kids in the United States to miss school and it accounts for millions of hospital visits each year. Research shows that breast feeding exclusively the first four to six months of life will dramatically decrease the risk of Asthma. If you, or your child, suffer with Asthma it is critical to eat a proper diet and have your spine regularly adjusted by a chiropractor. Spinal adjustments enhance the immune system's function and allow for the innate healing mechanisms of the body to work properly.



Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: When you think of a chiropractor, do you think of neck and back pain or do you think of wellness for your nerve system? In this video, Dr. Dane Donohue explains how Chiropractic works and introduces his program, 8 Weeks to Wellness.

The key issue being left out of the continuing health care discussions – not only by the media but by almost all involved – is the question of who’s really left behind. This question is not addressed by making sure most people have insurance – it actually makes it worse. Just as serious a problem is who’s NOT left behind...
