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: Parker University president, Dr. Mancini discusses the benefits of chiropractic care on the popular show 'The Doctors'. The theme of the show was the cause of pain. It is important to recognize that chiropractors are not pain doctors they correct the cause of disease by adjusting the spine and restoring proper nerve system function so that the body can heal its self. This segment shows some of the technology chiropractors may use to detect spinal subluxations and use for objective outcome measures during a chiropractic care plan.




Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Dr. Patrick Gentempo explains how chiropractic care is not for just the treatment of low back and neck pain, rather it is a proactive approach to health and well being. The world is a stressful place, and this stress often keeps our body from expressing optimal health. The nervous system is what manages stress and Doctors of Chiropractic evaluate the nervous system and remove any interference within it. When the nervous system is functioning optimally the body can adapt to the stresses of life properly and health rather than disease will manifest.



Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Even life long Chiropractic patients may not know that animals can and should be adjusted, as well. Dr. Jay Komarek is one of the leading animal chiropractors world-wide. This is a video of him adjusting a horse's atlas, which is just as important in the horse as it is in every human.




Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffery Tucker: This video of low back exercises comes from Craig Balentyne. He demonstrates three important beginner exercises to help improve the low back strength and endurance. Do these exercises at home, on your own.



Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Some may ask, "What's the big deal with Chiropractic?" The big deal is that Chiropractors work towards a big idea. This is an idea that is larger than just a few people in a community who "get it". This is an idea that strives to step up the physical and mental welfare of all humans and rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world.
