What is Applied Kinesiology in the Chiropractic practice?
Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is a way of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as bandaids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
Dr. Bill Sisson, D.C. is a Chiropractic Physician who practices Applied Kinesiology. Applied Kinesiology is the practice of using muscle strength testing as a tool for functional neurological evaluation. Applied kinesiology can be used to identify and treat problems that lead to symptomatic presentations such as musculoskeletal imbalances, physiological imbalances, nutritional deficiencies or excesses, imbalances in the body’s energy pathways and many other health concerns. Dr. Sisson uses precise positioning for hands-on manipulation and/or adjusting instruments to deliver chiropractic adjustments. He also employs vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements, as well as homeopathic remedies all of which are designed to enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
