Commonly known as Applied Kinesiology (AK), a non-invasive method focused on measuring individuals with muscle injury or disease's muscle range of motion, strength, and ability.
Muscle monitoring helps the professional determine neuromuscular function as it relates to regulatory mechanisms in the physiological, biological, and mental biomechanics.
From the Greek kinesis, meaning "motion," kinesiology is the study of dynamism and a mixture of Western innovation and energy flow theories along the meridians all across the body, or unseen energy pathways mapped out by acupuncture practitioners and traditional Chinese and Asian medicine.
Focused on detecting "subclinical" issues (predisposition to illness or slight signs of potential problems), kinesiologists provide diagnosis and treatment of discomfort and nausea, joint stiffness, fatigue, sensitivity to food, digestive problems, and phobia.
Members of the International College of Applied Kinesiology, founded and developed by the chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., made substantial progress in this field. AK is used as a diagnostic tool for determining what is wrong with a patient, and what to do with it.
An applied kinesiology examination depends upon knowledge of functional neurology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and biochemistry and is combined with standard physical examination procedures, laboratory findings, X rays, and the patient’s personal and medical history.
The different techniques developed by Goodheart and others at the International College of Applied Kinesiology are derived from many disciplines, including chiropractic, osteopathy, medicine, dentistry, acupuncture, and biochemistry, and are commonly used by chiropractic, osteopathic, homeopathic, dental, and medical practitioners.
Applied kinesiology has two essential components:
Through evaluating individual muscles the researcher will assess what affects the muscle's relative strength based on his or her knowledge of the body's basic mechanics and physiological functioning.
2. The second part of Kinesiology applied involves treatment. Nutrition, chiropractic, osteopathic cranial techniques, acupuncture, myofascial techniques, nervous system coordination procedures and other methods may be used to balance malfunctions.
