Applied Kinesiology (AK), developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964, uses 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, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care.

Applied Kinesiology Testing for Children

If you have been a patient at our office for very long, then you know that we use Applied Kinesiology testing in many cases. This testing is where we push your arm down and perceive any change in strength when we touch certain points on the body that relate to different problems. With this kind of testing we can find many different types of health problems that are missed by other doctors.

One of the real beautiful things about Applied Kinesiology or AK testing is that you can test children and infants for a variety of different types of health problems. As you are aware, kids oftentimes cannot describe what kind of health problems they are having. If their stomach hurts, if their head hurts, if something is going on and they just simply cry, this can be extremely aggravating to parents and doctors alike as you just have to guess at what might be causing the poor child discomfort.

With AK testing, we can really nail down exactly what is causing the child discomfort or problem and take the corrective steps. If you know anyone who has a kid who has not responded to traditional medical treatment and is searching for answers, this may a real lifesaver to them. Tell them to come in and see us to find out f we might bale to help their child’s problem.
