Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Applied Kinesiology is one of the many tools we use at Karl Chiropractic Clinic to evaluate patients and to help them achieve their health goals. We use Applied Kinesiology along with specific Chiropractic techniques to help facilitate healing of the body.

Applied Kinesiology (AK) was developed in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart. AK utilizes Muscle Testing -also called Muscle Response Testing (MRT) or Autonomic Response Testing (ART)-to evaluate the three functional aspects of well-being.

  • Biomechanical (structural)
  • Biochemical
  • Emotional

AK allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional health by using bioenergetic feedback through testing the strength of various muscles in the body. This highly individualized, in-depth system of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxations, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system that focuses on whole body care, not just symptoms. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.


Chiropractic Definitions
Muscle Testing: a means of evaluating specific reflexes and organs in a body by applying a small amount force to a muscle and having the patient resist that force. When a patient is unable to resist the force, the muscle is considered to be in a weakened state.
Functional Health: the category of health that incorporates how a body is functioning compared to how a person is just feeling. It is not simply being symptom free, but functioning at 100% of your full potential.
Bioenergetic Feedback: the means in which energy flows within a body through muscle testing.
Postural the evaluation of the muscles of the body as they are positioned in gravity
Muscular Imbalances: often felt as muscle spasms or pain. They exist when one muscle works as it should, while the same muscle on the other side of the body does not. These can exist as muscle spasms or as muscle weaknesses. Muscle imbalances can cause postural problems, contribute to pain and create muscle weakness interfering with normal daily activities.
Neurovascular: reflexes on the head that relate to muscles and organ of the body through the neurological and circulatory systems.
Neurolymphatic Points: reflexes on the body that relate to muscles and organs of the body through the neurological and lymphatic systems.
Subluxations:
1. a minor misalignment of one or more segments of the spine (vertebrae) causing an irritation to a nerve with a loss of normal function.
2. an interruption of communication from the brain to any cell, tissue or organ in the body. Subluxations are caused by any stress (physical, mental - emotional - social or chemical) the person cannot adapt to.

Subluxations result in the organ, tissue, muscles, etc., losing their normal function. Subluxations cause a lowered resistance to disease. When a vertebrae is misaligned it puts pressure on the nerves in that area, thereby cutting off communication from the brain to that area supplied by the nerve.
The purpose of Chiropractic is to correct the subluxation and restore proper nerve flow.
cranial-sacral movement: the subtle rhythmical movement of the bones of the head and the base of the spine, the sacrum, which cause the spinal fluid to circulate around the brain and the spinal cord.
acupuncture meridians: the energy pathways or chi that flow through the organs and the entire body according to Oriental medicine.
nutritional status: the state of the nutritional needs of a body including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fluid or water intake

"One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment! " Dr. George Goodheart

Discernment: the act of mentally separating one thing from another using insight and judgment.



CHIROPRACTIC - SAFE GENTLE EFFECTIVE

How does CHIROPRACTIC WORK?

How Chiropractic works to address the CAUSE of health problems:

Every cell in your body receives communication through the nervous system. The same nerve that goes to a muscle or skin cell also goes to the organs, glands, tissues and blood vessels in that area. Your brain and central nervous system control how all parts and systems of your body perform their functions. Ninety percent of the nerves in your body control function, while only ten percent control pain. Irritation to nerves that control function can cause functional problems like headaches, fatigue, sinus, allergies and sleep problems, irritability and digestive problems. Irritation can also cause sensory problems like pain, tension, tingling and numbness.

How chiropractic works is similar to removing a pebble from a shoe.
Have you ever had a pebble in your shoe?
A tiny pebble, because of its constant irritation of a nerve, can drive you crazy. At first it feels like a pressure, then an irritation, and finally, pain.

What happens if you move the pebble around in your shoe, but you don’t remove it?
It hurts everywhere it goes, doesn’t it? That’s because there is a nerve to every cell in your body.
So what did you do about the pebble? You took your shoe off and took it out, right?

If someone else had a pebble in their shoe and told you they were taking medication for the pebble irritation, that would be ridiculous, wouldn’t it?
It is not logical to treat a physical problem with a chemical solution!
If they performed surgery on their foot for pebble irritation, that would be extreme, wouldn’t it?

The correct thing to do would be to remove the pebble from the shoe. It’s a physical problem causing the irritation. And that’s what chiropractors do.

Chiropractors are nerve doctors. They treat your nerves without drugs and surgery. They are trained to locate tiny areas of irritation to your nerves and remove them safely and painlessly.
These irritated areas are called subluxations. Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to locate subluxations, and gently and effectively correct them.. By removing this interference and irritation, chiropractic allows your body to function properly and to heal itself. The purpose of Chiropractic is to correct the subluxation and to restore proper nerve flow.

4 Basic Stages of Health.
Stage 1 Malfunction When care is sought in stage 1,2 or the top of stage 3 - costly surgery and drug therapy may be avoided, saving many thousands in cost of care and resulting in better quality of life.
Stage 2 Disease
Stage 3 Minor Symptoms
Major Symptoms This is the stage where people tend to seek traditional medical treatment.
Stage 4 Danger
(The body is in danger, and approaching death)
At this point it is often too late to treat easily or effectively. Extraordinary medical procedures required.

Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique (A/SERT)

What is A/SERT? A/SERT (Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique) is a revolutionary treatment system based on the principles of Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing). This technique was developed by Dr. John Brimhall, and is a modification of NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad. This treatment, in conjunction with the 10-Step Protocol, can bring about dramatic improvement -at times even total elimination- for all types of allergies. It is simple, non-invasive and extremely effective. It is currently practiced by hundreds of health practitioners, including MD’s, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dentists, and, to some extent, allergy sufferers themselves.

A/SERT work? A/SERT is based on the recognition that all things, animate and inanimate, in our universe have their own specific electromagnetic fields due to their atomic and molecular makeup, and that these fields affect each other. This is true for our bodies, rocks, pollen, mold, peanut butter, a flower, water, in short, everything. This electromagnetic energy is associated with meridians (energy pathways) in acupuncture, chi in Chinese Medicine, and can be demonstrated with Kirlian photography. Nuclear physicists can determine the type of atom by its electromagnetic frequency. According to Dr. Devi Nambudripad, this is what happens: Your energy system and brain interpret a particular substance (a diamond ring, a whole wheat bagel, a peanut, hot water, sun light) as potentially harmful to your body, and your body reacts. For other people this same item is totally harmless. Your energy pathways freeze up as a way of defending the body against this unsuitable substance. This in turn blocks your energy meridians and, if this condition continues, the overall functioning of your body suffers.

A/SERT Diagnostics - Our fingertips are very sensitive to the electromagnetic energy of substances with which we come into contact. By placing a sample of a suspected allergen into a person’s hand, and using Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, the A/SERT practitioner can determine whether or not a person reacts “weak” or “strong” to the substance, i.e., whether this substance causes an energy blockage in the patient’s body. Such blockages can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from sneezing and coughing to chronic diseases such as asthma.

A/SERT Desensitization - The A/SERT practitioner stimulates key points along the patient’s spine while the patient is holding the allergen. The doctor stimulates certain meridian points as part of the procedure. A chemical change takes place in the autonomic nervous system, neutralizing any allergic reaction to the substance. A/SERT reprograms the brain and the nervous system, and eliminates your body’s conditioned response to the “allergen”. Environmental medicine has been dealing with hidden allergies for several decades. You try to avoid the allergenic substance in your life, you go on a rotation diet, and maybe you can manage. But with A/SERT you can continue to have contact with the very substance that made you sick.

br erchonia laser jpg 0Cold Laser Therapy

Where is this being used?

The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction procedures.

How does it work?

When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level laser’s light frequencies penetrate non-invasively below the skin as light, and work by helping to restore this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.

Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:

  • tendonitis
  • frozen shoulder
  • fractures
  • post-operative wounds
  • sprain-strains
  • scar tissue
  • autoimmune diseases
  • chronic or acute pain
  • wound healing
  • arthritis
  • migraines
  • disc herniations
  • minor nerve damage
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • heavy metal detoxification

br erchonia eb305 jpg 0EB 305 - Energy Balancer

The EB 305 was designed and developed to restore the body's energy and balance while facilitating and aiding in its natural detoxification process. This device has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's Ph and electromagnetic energy.

How does it work?

The EB uses direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bioenergetic water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during treatment which enhances the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate.

You may benefit from the EB 305 if you suffer from:

  • arthritis
  • allergies
  • chronic pain
  • multiple chemical sensitivities
  • autoimmune diseases
  • edema
  • inflammation

For more information on this therapy go to www.4ebr.com.

Chiropractic Definitions
Bioenergetic: the energy that flows in a body and all living organisms, can also be generated by creating a magnetic or field using direct current or magnets.
Cellular ATP: the energy produced by the cells of the body that run the body. ATP’s are produced biochemically from specific enzyme reactions with foods eaten
