Kinesiology is the study of human body movement. Many chiropractors use Applied Kinesiology as a technique with patients. This is also called muscle testing. This method is a way to evaluate and treat problems based on the communication of the neuromuscular, autonomic nervous system and skeletal muscles being linked to the body and other specific glands and organs. The method finds muscle weaknesses that can be signals of other internal problems like a reduced blood supply, nerve damage, organ problems, chemical imbalances, etc. Getting chiropractic care can help to correct the muscle imbalance so that the associated tissues and organs can work better. When you need chiropractic adjustments, call Aloha Wellness in San Antonio, TX, to schedule your assessment and treatment.
Using Applied Kinesiology
Applied Kinesiology is often used by chiropractors and other medical practitioners to evaluate several physical problems such as nutritional problems, nervous system issues, and imbalances that exist in the energy pathways of the body. Practitioners first get training in their field and then study this method in a postgraduate setting.
An Applied Kinesiology Visit
When you first arrive, our practitioner will assess your medical history. Testing can be done to determine changes when you are in different functional positions. This can indicate that there are imbalances present in the body. Then, other examinations are made such as tests for balance, reflexes, and skin sensitivity.
Our chiropractor may also look at your posture, your range of motion, and your walk. Then, there are muscle strength tests that are performed by our chiropractor. There may also be other tests that are done as a part of the complete examination. Once your level of muscle strength has been determined, we will create a kinesiology program tailored to your needs.
