Here at Balance Chiropractic Health Center in Oakland, CA, our chiropractor Dr. Whitmore has a wealth of experience treating a variety of conditions utilizing the most effective holistic approaches. One of these areas of specialty is the administration of muscle testing which works hand in hand with applied kinesiology. The first step is muscle testing which helps locate the precise areas of the body that may be sourcing specific chronic pains, illness or impeding overall wellness.

The Essentials of Muscle Testing

Muscle testing specifically allows our Oakland CA chiropractor to perform certain measurement tests to help determine if electrical impulses are being interfered with. The human body is operated by electrical and chemical signals that traverse back and forth between the brain, spinal cord, and the fluid nervous system. The nervous system and the brain control all the bodily organs and directly impact the nervous system.

Any type of interference amid the electrical message exchange process ultimately results in weakened muscles. Healthy muscles are strong and are more resistant to periodic afflictions while unhealthy ones source many common conditions such as diabetes, vertigo, Parkinson’s disease, and osteoporosis. Identifying and resolving any unhealthy muscles as soon as possible, as the nerves, glands, organs, and every bodily system relies on muscles for proper functioning.

Muscle testing utilizes your body’s muscle and nervous systems in a painless fashion. It helps us better understand any areas where the body is having electrical impulse communication problems that prevent it from returning to normal function.

Muscle testing does not specifically diagnose any condition, but it helps us discover what certain muscles may need to be re-activated to fully functioning and restore health. From there, our Oakland CA chiropractor will develop a treatment program such as applied kinesiology to assist in bringing your body to a better state of wellness.
