Our Chiropractor, Sam, uses Kinesiology as a tool to find out what needs to be done to alleviate certain issues in the body. Kinesiology is the technique of using muscle function testing to find these issues. When you test a muscle it’s not only testing the function of that muscle it’s testing the related nerve, organ, meridian, emotional component to that muscle. For example, the lower back has the glutes and piriformis (buttock muscles) which help support our back. Both of these muscles are related to our sex organs which might explain why women sometimes suffer from lower back pain during their period and men suffer lower back pain from an inflamed prostate. Certain clues in the body’s dysfunction are obtained by testing these various muscles.
