Applied Kinesiology treatment
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that uses basic muscle testing for evaluating areas of dysfunction within the body. AK uses the proprioceptive aspects of the nervous system (the part relating to joints and muscles) to assess the function of the musculo-skeletal system, alongside the chemical and mental-emotional aspects of health and wellbeing.
Health is composed of structural, chemical and mental factors which must be balanced and this is known to naturopaths and osteopaths as “The triad of health”. Ill health will involve at least one of these factors, often two or all three are involved. The AK practitioner will analyse and check all three factors.
What can Applied Kinesiology help with?
AK can refine the examination and diagnostic testing of any of the musculoskeletal problems normally associated with a visit to an osteopath, such as low back pain, neck pain or sciatica. It can also help with any functional aspects of health by highlighting which areas of health are below par and may therefore be contributing to symptoms.
What to expect when you see an Applied Kinesiology practitioner?
You should expect to be actively involved in the examination, diagnostic process and the solution. AK, used alongside a careful case history and standard diagnostic tests, brings a better insight into how the body is functioning.
Testing will include aspects of musculoskeletal, visceral (your body organs and glands), metabolic (such as toxicity or nutrient deficiency), and cranial disturbances. Treatment may involve manipulation of the joints and muscles, nutritional support, homeopathic or herbal remedies, and protocols to deal with stress, together with lifestyle or exercise advice.
