Kinesiology is a diagnostic system using muscle testing as a functional neurological evaluation. The methodology is concerned primarily with neuromuscular function as it relates to the structural, chemical and mental physiologic regulatory mechanisms. Kinesiology, which originated within the chiropractic profession, is an approach to clinical practice, with multidisciplinary applications.

Kinesiology is a form of diagnosis that uses muscle testing as a feedback mechanism to examine how a person's body is functioning. Since Kinesiology draws together elements from many diverse therapies, it provides a unified, interdisciplinary approach to health care.

Your health involves chemical, structural, and mental factors - in Kinesiology, this is called the triad of health. When a person isn't well, one or more of these factors is out of balance. Since each factor influences the others in an interactive way, a thorough Kinesiology diagnosis evaluates all of them to find the cause of the problem. A health problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides. For example, a chemical imbalance can affect mental symptoms. Kinesiology gives the practitioner the tools to direct appropriate therapies toward the proper side or sides and bring them back into balance.

In general, the Kinesiologist uses standardized diagnostic testing as well as muscle testing to evaluate the patient's condition. The muscle tests can be used as a tool to determine the appropriate therapy that is needed to restore normal function.

Therapies can include:

• specific joint manipulation or mobilization
• myofascial therapies
• cranial techniques
• clinical nutrition
• dietary management
• reflex procedures
• postural stretching

The PNT therapy is a more advanced method for healing and elimination pain generated from active inflamed trigger points within the body. PNT can be more effective than earlier trigger point release systems used by various professions and very often much less painful. The goal of PNT isn't to manage trigger points by applying pressure on them or utilizing mechanical force to manage the trigger points as do other systems, but applies neurological reflexes to switch them off. After we get to the right reflex the trigger point is shut off in just a few seconds. People are always surprised that tender areas can be eradicated in mere seconds and the painful sensation is gone, especially when they have been suffering for years.
