SPORTS KINESIOLOGY: THE USE OF COMPLIMENTARY SPORTS MEDICINE

PHILIP MAFFETONE


1998 CONFERENCE PAPER


Sports kinesiology is also referred to as complementary sports medicine. It has two main features. First, it is a way of evaluating a person’s structural, chemical and mental/emotional aspects. This includes any or all means necessary to efficiently assess the person, including muscle testing. Second, it utilizes many approaches to correct the imbalances found, depending on the knowledge and legal scope of the practitioner. These may include various techniques such as acupressure and other reflex methods, diet, nutrition, muscle work, exercise training and other lifestyle issues.

This paper describes the philosophical aspects of complementary sports medicine, some of it’s definitions, and gives one example of a common imbalance – excess body fat – and how it is addressed in this field.
