Applied Kinesiology — The Real Story

Applied Kinesiology is used by approximately 37.2% (18,600) of the chiropractic profession according to a recent job analysis survey conducted by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

The neurophysiologic basis and clinical applicability of applied kinesiology are confirmed by seven research studies published in the refereed literature.

The proper use of applied kinesiology requires an appreciation and understanding of anatomy, physiology, and functional neurological relationships. In addition, the physician must have an excellent understanding of muscular synergism to be able to properly administer manual muscle testing.

It is the position of the Intentional College of Applied Kinesiology that applied kinesiology examination should be combined with approved standard physical diagnosis, laboratory, X-ray, history, and any other special examination procedures conducted by the physician using applied kinesiology as an adjunct to diagnosis.

The applied kinesiologist's criteria for determining nutritional needs are based upon a complete diagnostic work-up, which may include history, type of dysfunction, laboratory tests, physical diagnosis, and dietary inadequacies.

The most important value of applied kinesiology is in its use as a system to evaluate function via the neuromuscular system, to give added dimension to diagnosis.
