Kinesiology at Kogarah Chiropractic and Acupuncture

Kinesiology borrows from many different disciplines, using muscle testing as a guide for diagnosis and patient care. The ancient Chinese observed that every muscle in the body links to a specific organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. By testing the strength of its related muscle, we get a glimpse of the condition of that particular organ or tissue. Simple muscle testing helps us uncover the structural, chemical and mental (emotional) problem that may be in your body. It can also direct us to the best options to restore your health.

Finding the Problem

First, we review the history of your health situation. This is followed by a thorough physical examination. Thermography, and x-rays may be needed.

Then we analyse your posture, the way you walk, turn your spine and bend. By combining these findings with muscle testing, we develop a unique insight into the cause(s) of your problem. There may be multiple causes.

Resolving the Problem

With an understanding of your problem, we determine how to help you most from a variety of healing modalities, which may include:

  • Specific Chiropractic adjustments
  • Massage
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Nutrition supplements
  • Cranial techniques
  • Muscle rehabilitation
