(The Applied Kinesiology Technique)
What is Appleid Kinesiology?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a non-invasive technique that uses manual-muscle-testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis including (but not limited to) spinal, cranial and soft tissue manipulation, acupuncture, reflex skills, allergy and nutrient evaluation, emotional release procedures, and the list goes on.
“AK Doctor” is typically referring to a Doctor of Chiropractic with a specialization in AK. Our AK Doctor, Kory Branham is skilled in addressing almost any malady from any age group! Most of our patients refer to him as their “General Physician” and seek his advice for all health concerns.
AK uses the “Triad of Health” to evaluate the 3 basic stressors associated with all health problems. They are the structural, chemical, and mental aspects of wellness. Using the innate wisdom of the body through muscle testing, the AK Doctor finds what areas need balancing, and the best form of support for that area. This is not a new concept for Chiropractic, as it’s founder D.D. Palmer stated “The determining cause of disease is traumatism, poison, and autosuggestion”
Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system.
They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.

“Chiropractors have found in every disease that is supposed to be contagious, a cause in the spine,” wrote B.J. Palmer, the famous developer of chiropractic, in 1909. “In the spinal column, we will find a subluxation that corresponds to every type of disease.”
As chiropractic science is concerned with preserving and restoring health, it focuses particular attention on subluxations of the tiny bones of the spine. A vertebral subluxation happens when one or more of bones of the spine are out of position and compress spinal nerves. These nerves are the primary communication link between the body to the brain. Pressure on these nerves interferes with the communication between the body and the brain, which may cause organs, tissues, and cells not to function properly. Chiropractic identifies, analyzes and helps correct these disturbances to restore the body’s natural balance and the potential for self-healing.
How a Subluxation Interferes with Optimal Health
A subluxation interrupts the proper operation of the body’s nerve system, compromising the maintenance of optimal health. The human body consists of several interrelated systems, functioning with an innate intelligence to adapt to changes in our internal environment and the world around us. Every moment, impulses are delivered between the brain and the body’s 100 trillion cells to coordinate every movement and function. Impulses send this intricate information through the nerve connections in our spine. When vertebrae become subluxated because of any number of factors, interference results in the body’s communication process, negatively affecting functions and performance.
