Applied Kinesiology

Dr. George Goodheart, D.C., of Detroit, Michigan, a chiropractic physician and the founder of Applied Kinesiology, first observed in 1964 that the presence of skeletal deformity and postural distortion is often associated with muscular dysfunction. The distinguishing characteristic of AK, then, is the search for muscle imbalance so that it can be corrected. In general, the Applied Kinesiology Practitioner finds a muscle that tests weak and then attempts to determine why that muscle is not functioning properly. Headaches, for example, can be traced back to problems with the neck muscles. Therapies utilized can include specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian therapy, clinical nutrition, dietary management and various reflex procedures. As with all holistic care, the goal of Applied Kinesiology is to restore balance to the total being.
