A technique that separates this practice from traditional chiropractors is called Applied Kinesiology (AK).
One way this technique is used is to balance a patient’s muscles. Many times the pain or dysfunction that the patient is experiencing is caused by the muscles not firing properly. Correcting that problem can eliminate the patient’s pain and discomfort.
Another important application of AK is to determine what type of nutritional supplement a patient needs and how much should be taken. This is a very systematic approach to determine if a supplement the patient is taking is appropriate. This same technique can also be used to determine if a specific food causes an allergic reaction in a patient i.e. ADD/ADHD, headaches, etc.
