What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the study of how the body moves. In applied kinesiology, we diagnose and treat a variety of conditions based on the link between muscles and organs and glands. In this method, we analyze the link between specific muscle weakness and what that may mean for more intensive concerns in the body such as nerve damage, chemical imbalances, gland problems, organ complications, and reduced blood supply. Also important to know is that in treating the muscle weakness, it is possible to heal the underlying problem with the internal organ associated with it.

When Can Applied Kinesiology Help You?

When you come in to see your chiropractor, we'll provide a full examination and diagnostics to better understand what your body needs. We can use applied kinesiology for a variety of conditions including:

  • Nervous system related problems
  • Imbalances in the body's energy pathways (you may have heard of these called meridians in traditional Chinese medicine)
