Applied Kinesiology assessments are used in conjunction with standard methods of diagnosis, such as clinical history, physical examination findings, laboratory tests, and instrumentation to develop a clinical impression of the unique physiologic condition of each patient, including an impression of the patient's functional physiologic status. When appropriate, this clinical impression is used as a guide to the application of conservative physiologic therapeutics.
Applied kinesiology-based procedures are administered to achieve the following examination and therapeutic goals:
* Provide an interactive assessment of the functional health status of an individual which is not equipment intensive but does emphasize the importance of correlating findings with standard
* Restore postural balance, correct gait impairment, improve range of motion
* Restore normal afferentation to achieve proper neurologic control and/or organization of body function
* Achieve homeostasis of endocrine, immune, digestive, and other visceral function
* Intervene earlier in degenerative processes to prevent or delay the onset of frank pathologic processes
Applied kinesiology (AK) which is also know as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical ..
Functional Kinesiology. 300 years B.C., Aristotle termed the word kinesiology and is often referred to as the “Father of Kinesiology”. Archimedes was the first to develop principles of fluid mechanics with the use of pulleys that enabled men to move ships.
