A NYC Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist Posts a Case History Using both AK & Neuro-Kinetics

As you may know, I’m working on perfecting my recent knowledge of a technique called neuro kinetics and incorporating it into my chiropractic and applied kinesiology practice.      https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2015/09/01/taking-neuro-kinetic-therapy-seminar-sept-12nd-13th/  https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2015/09/20/a-nyc-chiropractorapplied-kinesiologist-starts-adding-neuro-kinetic-therapy-to-the-mix/

What applied kinesiology and neuro kinetics have in common is muscle testing and therapy localization. 

In the latter therapy localization (TL), the patient will either place their hand or finger on specific points, a vertebrae or another muscle and the doctor retests the previous weak or inhibited muscle to see if the weakness is corrected. https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2014/08/09/the-use-of-applied-kinesiology-in-a-chiropractic-examination/.

In neuro kinetics, the patient either touches a muscle or actively contracts the strong muscle that may be compensating for a inhibited muscle or set of muscles.

Female 50’s 1 wk ago sat in a small chair that only supported her “rt. cheek” resulting in lt. low back pain. Tested bilateral psoas/ tensor fasciae latae (TFL) /transverse abdominal (TVA)/ rectus abdominal (RA) /quadratus lumborum (QL)/hamstring/gluteus max….weak (W) or inhibited bilateral QL/ lt. glut max….patient therapy localizies rt. hamstring…..bilateral QL/lt. gluteus maximus now test strong …rt hamstring was facilitating muscle …… treat rt hamstring w/ spindle/golgi tendon work( an AK technique)…retest lt glut max/bilateral QL for “neural lock” which sends a message to the brain to start activating the previous inhibited muscle.

I then use chiropractic/applied kinesiology technique to correct the following: patient had a category 1 pelvis- patient’s torso is torquing opposite the upper body, (http://www.chiroaccess.com/Articles/Chiropractic-Technique-Summary–Sacro-Occipital-Technique-SOT.aspx?id=00002910) and  irritation of lt illiolumber ligament which connects 5th lumbar and pelvis , and irritation of lt sacro-tuberous ligament which connects bottom of sacrum to lower pelvis, adjust the torque of the 4th lumbar. Two cranial sutures were adjusted that go along with a category 1 pelvis.

Exercises for QL &  gluteus max are given.

Spinal Pain Not Being Helped? See An Applied Kinesiologist; It May Be A Fixation

At least 5-8 times a year, I’ll get a patient in that tells me that they have seen a chiropractor for their upper neck pain (or another part of their spine) but it never resolved.

I smile and do the usual orthopedic and neurological testing along with muscle testing neck muscles like the cervical erector, the SCM & the Scalene Anticus.

And then I go and test muscles bilaterally such as the Psoas muscle a major muscle of locomotion or the Gluteus Maximus; both of these muscle being strong postural muscles

And sure enough one of these muscles will test weak bilaterally. I then ask the patient to place two fingers (or therapy localize) on two different segments (vertebrae) bilaterally and then re-test.

If the muscle being tested is strengthened, then I know that the problem is not a subluxation where one or two vertebrae are misaligned and fixed in that position but a fixation where two or three vertebrae are fixed on each other.

Adjusting each vertebrae individually does nothing until you adjust both vertebrae at the same time in order to break up the fixation.

Your local certified Applied Kinesiologist who is either a chiropractor or an osteopath has trained in this technique and can help you greatly.
