Applied Kinesiology

Muscles play a critical role in body alignment and posture. Testing of your muscles’ response to pressure gives feedback as to how the muscle may behave during activity. As part of a clinical assessment the chiropractors at Spectrum Natural Family Healthcare use Applied Kinesiology methods of testing to reflect muscle behaviour in different situations, such as when you walk – some muscles need to be fully facilitated while others less so, to allow your body to move fluently. Sometimes this pattern is out of synchronization creating imbalance. In that case, the muscle system needs to be re-balanced.

Often, people report tightness on one side. This may be because a muscle not carrying its designed load fully (a muscle pressure test would reveal a weakness). In that situation, more load is transferred to other muscles, perhaps leading to the tightness experienced. If you think this may be a problem, we would be happy to help so you can get back to doing what you love to do.
