Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) is a system using muscle testing as a functional neurological evaluation.

The methodology is concerned primarily with neuromuscular function as it relates to the structural, chemical and mental physiologic regulatory mechanisms. A.K., which originated within the chiropractic profession, is an approach to clinical practice, with multidisciplinary applications.

Applied Kinesiology IS:

  • A diagnostic system using muscle testing to augment normal examination procedures. It was founded and developed by Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., a chiropractor. Further advances have been made by other researchers from various disciplines.
  • A diagnostic tool that uses the neuromuscular system and other measurable parameters to aid in evaluating what is wrong and what to do for a patient.
  • An applied kinesiology examination depends upon knowledge of functional neurology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and biochemistry and is combined with standard physical examination procedures, laboratory findings, x-rays and history taking.
  • An expanding body of knowledge that covers in depth the structural and chemical imbalances that are at the base of most patient's problems.
  • Is based on chiropractic principles and requires manual manipulation of the spine, extremities and cranial bones as the structural basis of its procedures.

Applied Kinesiology IS NOT:

  • A simple yes/no, radionics or pendulum type of testing system.
  • Testing bottles in the hand or pills on the skin.
  • Testing using mental telepathy.
  • Using crystals or magnets as treatment modalities.
  • Touch for health or any of the other forms of evaluation using muscle testing as a simple yes/no answer system.
  • A simplistic, cookie cutter approach to treatment.
