Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique holistic diagnostic system developed by chiropractors for use by many health care practitioners such as medical doctors, osteopaths, dentists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, and other health care practitioners. It includes the evaluation of structural and joint biomechanics, nutritional deficiency or toxic chemical excess, and abnormal emotional patterns all of which limit normal function in health, recovery from illness, and optimizing performance.
A pain-free optimal state of health is possible when proper function is realized throughout the body. Without this, the stage is set for pain, symptoms, and illness or dysfunction.
Adrenal stress disorder is a common problem in our modern age. Often lifestyle modification, diet changes, and nutritional supplementation by an applied kinesiology professional can result in lasting change for the ailing individual. Failure to correct this common problem can lead to excessive or ineffective chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments, or other procedures. George Goodheart, the founder of AK in 1964, believed in “A pound of diagnosis and an ounce of ‘cure’.” Just the right amount of therapy for the patient is the goal.
