If you’re suffering from pain, discomfort, tension, or other issues, Dr. James Monk at Monk Chiropractic Clinic in Chickasha, OK offers applied kinesiology and other effective holistic treatment methods to help you achieve relief.
What Is Applied Kinesiology and What Is It For?
In order for you to understand the process, start first by imagining going in to see your primary care physician. You tell them an area of your body hurts. What will they do?
Typically, they’ll order an X-ray to get a view of your internal systems. They’ll be able to see if you have any broken bones that might be causing your pain or if there are any obvious issues in other areas.
The problem with X-rays, though, is that they are still images. They don’t allow the doctor to see what happens when you move your body, like how your muscles respond or how your breathing changes.
Both of these signs and more can be great indicators of exactly where a problem lies within your body. And they’re not something easily seen through still X-ray images. With that in mind, how can your doctor treat your pain and the root cause if it’s not a broken bone or something else that’s obvious when you’re not moving?
This is where applied kinesiology comes in. It’s a method that Dr. Monk uses at Monk Chiropractic Clinic in Chickasha, OK to assess an individual’s mental, structural, and chemical response to specific muscle testing.
Applied kinesiology – along with other methods of evaluation – give him a more thorough understanding of where in the body your pain, discomfort, or limited mobility might be coming from. And with that understanding, he can create a customized plan for treatment.
