Applied Kinesiology in Bentleigh

person having arm adjustedAt East Bentleigh Health Group, we’re focused on scientific, evidence-based care to help you achieve and maintain better musculoskeletal health. One way we do that is through Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, which is a scientific way of asking your body exactly what it needs.

Applied Kinesiology (AK) borrows from many different disciplines, using muscle testing as a guide for diagnosis and patient care. By testing the strength of certain muscles, we get a glimpse of how related organs and tissues nearby are functioning.

Muscle testing helps us uncover functional issues that may be in your body, such as whether muscles are too strong or too weak, and locate structural problems like subluxations in the spine, the extremities or even the cranium. It can also often direct us to the best options to restore your health.

How It Works

First, we review the history of your health situation. This is followed by a thorough physical examination. Then, we’ll analyse your posture and the way you walk, turn and bend. By combining these findings with the AK testing of the strength or weakness of certain muscles, we develop a unique insight into the possible cause(s) of your problem.

With an understanding of your problem, we select from a variety of healing modalities, which may include chiropractic adjustments, joint mobilisations, nutrition advice and more.
