Applied Kinesiology is a relatively new field, and is patterned after the ancient Chinese medicine. It was developed in the early 1960s by Dr. George Goodheart. Its practitioners have the option to use a variety of alternative disciplines in the treatment of the patient. But first, there is a major focus, one which has been lost in traditional care, the full assessment of the patient, including functional status. Part of this initial process utilizes traditional muscle testing, which helps assist the doctor in evaluating the patient. Once this evaluation is made, and only then, can the applied kinesiologist administer individualized treatment which matches the patient’s need. The goal of treatment is to relieve the cause of the problem, and slow the universal degenerative process, thereby delaying the onset of end-stage diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
A visit to an AK doctor should result in three important events:
1. A complete assessment for functional problems, not just disease.
2. Administration of therapies that specifically match the patient’s needs to improve or correct any dysfunction found.
3. Recommendation of specific lifestyle changes which may correct and/or prevent the previously found dysfunctions from recurring.
