What is Kinesiology?
The study of muscles and movements. This therapy, developed in 1964 by an American Chiropractic doctor, stems from the theory behind the knee-tapping test of reflexes. Each set of muscles is thought to be related to different parts of the body, and when the muscles are working well so is the body as a whole. Practitioners analyze muscle function, posture, gait, and other structural factors in addition to inquiring about lifestyle factors that may be contributing to a health-related problem. Nutritional supplements, muscle and joint manipulation, and lifestyle modification may then be used as part of a treatment plan. Applied kinesiology is used by health-care providers who are licensed to diagnose, such as chiropractors, osteopaths, dentists, and medical doctors.
