Chiropractic and muscle testing

Chiropractic is different with muscle testing

When I started school to become a doctor I was thinking mainstream like the rest of the chiropractic students. But then I saw chiropractic and muscle testing used together and I immediately knew what I needed to do.

Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology

Chiropractic was discovered over a century ago (well at least re-discovered). Methods of correcting the joints of the body have been know about in many ancient cultures throughout time.

Do you know how it’s modern day inventor, Dr. D.D. Palmer, knew chiropractic was important? He adjusted a bone in the spine of a patient because they had back pain and several days later their hearing came back. That’s right, he restored the hearing of a deaf person with adjusting their back.

Chiropractic is much different today.

Today chiropractic is run by the insurance industry. They say chiropractic is only good for aches and pains and this is what most of the schools and doctors focus on. But as you can see chiropractic was not discovered after the first car accident. It was discovered because it had dramatic affects on someone’s health.

A healthy spine adds to a healthy body

A healthy spine is important for your overall health. If you think about it, the nerves of the spine tell the arms and legs how to work. They tell the organs and glands of the body how to work. The acupuncture meridian energy of the body also travels through the spine. The balance of energy in the body determines the health of your body.

Muscles keep the spine in place

What keeps the spine in place? The muscles do. If you’ve ever been to a chiropractor they may of adjusted you neck, back or even arm or leg. If you felt great afterwards but it didn’t seem to last long, it was probably because the muscles are not working right in that area. Sometimes massage, deep tissue or fascial release work can help this. But again, it may be temporary.

If there is a tight muscle, one that is pulling and possibly painful, there will also be a weak muscle associated to it causing the tightness of its counterpart. What do most doctors or therapists do? They try to get the tight, painful muscle to relax. But this is rarely the complete answer.

If there is a tight muscle there is usually a weak muscle causing it.

I am not talking about muscle strength here. I am talking about the fact that muscles turn on and off like a light bulb turns on or off. When you walk, run, bend, chew or do other activities muscle need to turn on and off so that your body can move. A muscle can be strong but doesn’t turn on and off when it is supposed to and this can cause decreased motion and pain.

A muscle can become dysfunctional from problems with the spine, related organs, related acupuncture meridians, and emotional stress (Have you ever had a stressful situation happen you you then had your neck or back tighten up?). All of these have to be taken into consideration when you are looking at health from a holistic perspective.

Professional Muscle Doctors

An Applied Kinesiologist is a professional muscle doctor. They know which muscles are not working properly by looking at the way you stand, walk, run and or sit. You might think these doctors are psychic because they can tell you things about your health just by looking at you. They know holistic relations of your muscles and it assists them in locating the cause much easier.

Imagine optimal function

Imagine if an Applied Kinesiologist would balance the muscles around your chronic neck, low back, shoulder, knee or what aver part of your body is not working right. See yourself walking or running with these muscles turning on and off properly in a beautiful symphony of motion. The tight muscles would relax because the muscles that were turned off are working properly again. The joints will be moving efficiently and your body will be restored to the way it is supposed to work. You will feel like a new person.

If you need a profession Applied Kinesiologist take a look at the directory of the International College of Applied Kinesiology.
