Applied Kinesiology Q & A

What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Kinesiology uses the best aspects of Eastern health systems and Western techniques to deal with chronic pain by addressing it at its source and developing a lifetime wellness plan for the whole person.

The chiropractic care and physical therapy we employ are based on the belief that real lasting health must take into view a person as a complete whole. Physical stress and pain most often are caused by an injury that involves, not only the physical but the mind and emotions as well.

Chronic pain very often can lead a person to feelings of anxiety and depression, which must be treated as part of the pain problem but something separate from it.

How Does a Therapist Use Kinesiology to Help?

We use muscle techniques that allow us to monitor the flow of energy throughout a patient’s body on a very specific level. Through this technique, an applied kinesiology practitioner can determine which factors are disrupting the body’s natural flow of energy. That natural flow of energy is essential to good health and freedom from pain.

Acupuncture, gentle massage, and other proven therapies are used to make corrections in a patient’s body energy flow. All of these are combined with personalized instruction on specific body movements, nutrition, and changes in lifestyle.

What Can Patients Expect With Kinesiology Therapy?

  • Our doctors and therapists work with every type of patient, regardless of age or health condition.
  • Physical therapy is only the beginning at 34th Street Chiropractic and Wellness. We guide our patients with ideas as to how to reduce muscle rigidness, improve their mobility and have a pain-free life.
  • Our physical therapist and doctors work with patients in one-on-one sessions to lead them in developing good stress management strategies that are tailored to their preferred lifestyle.
  • Patients are taught a few simple exercises that are designed to eliminate the need for painkillers.
  • Kinesiology does not diagnose or treat illness; it allows the body to communicate what it needs to restore well-being and physical balance. Kinesiology is safe for every age, from infants to the elderly.
