Applied Kinesiology (AK) is the essence of integrative and holistic medicine, drawing from the disciplines of chiropractic, clinical nutrition, and functional neurology, that takes the standards of diagnosis and treatment to a higher level. It is a non-invasive, diagnostic system that uses manual muscle testing to evaluate the structural, biochemical, and mental factors that balance and restore the major systems of the body.
To correct a problem and do the most to ensure it doesn’t recur, structural, biochemical and mental systems must be evaluated to find where the underlying cause of a problem lies.
For example, a biochemical imbalance caused by poor digestion can cause structural and/or mental symptoms such as mid-back pain, anxiety, or depression. Diet and nutrition can have a profound effect on the brain’s chemistry. What we eat for dinner can influence our sleeping, our dreaming, and how we feel upon waking. Applied kinesiology enables Dr. Zanelli to evaluate each component and direct therapy toward correcting the imbalances. It will add a new dimension to evaluation and treatment by giving significant insight into the standard diagnostics and drawing together the core elements of complementary therapies, creating a more unified approach to both diagnosis and treatment.
