Why Choose an Applied Kinesiologist and Holistic Chiropractor
Most people think that if they go to a chiropractor, the only differences to consider are the chiropractor’s location and whether or not they accept your insurance. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Chiropractors may differ greatly in their approach to chiropractic care from the “herd mentality” of seeing as many patients as possible in the shortest amount of time possible, to those who take a more individualized approach to chiropractic care which will involve a much greater investment into your care and a more holistic approach. I fall into the latter category and believe that that approach enables me to take the time needed both initially and on an ongoing basis to evaluate your changing health needs and to determine the treatment needed at each visit. Your needs continually change due to many factors, and a treatment plan should not be set in stone at an initial visit. Each visit brings forth different issues and concerns that need to be addressed at that time.
If you have seen a chiropractor before, you may be familiar with some adjusting techniques and physical therapy. Fortunately, not all chiropractors practice the same way, so patients do have the ability to pick and choose a practitioner that they feel suits their health needs.
As an Applied Kinesiologist, I bring a diagnostic tool to the table that goes far beyond simply fixing structural issues to being able to identify specifically where an issue is originating in order to treat the cause of the issue(s). This also enables me to customize a patient’s treatment to what they are experiencing at that moment. Applied Kinesiology is a very interesting science and I will only be touching on the details of it here, but please read this article “What is AK?” for more detailed information.
Over the past fourteen years of practicing Applied Kinesiology, I have been amazed at how efficiently I am able to help my patients regain their health in so many different ways. The nature and feel of my practice is different than that of a standard chiropractor. Instead of only fixing someone’s low back pain, I am able to also help them with their digestive problems, their headaches, their lack of energy, and their hormonal imbalances, for example among many others. I have seen many extremely complicated situations over the years and have been able to help them eliminate pain and achieve their health and wellness goals. Those challenges and my passion for helping others fuels my desire to continually be involved in research and education to help my patients.
As a Certified Applied Kinesiologist, I am also a Holistic Chiropractor. I evaluate all of your systems equally, structural, chemical and neurological and seek to return your body to its most optimal health. The body is an amazing creation. By working to fix it, fine tune it and correct its imbalances, amazing health changes can happen. This is what I try to do every day for my patients.
So next time you decide to look for a chiropractor, remember there is a big difference between how I practice and how others do.
Take a few minutes and think about what state of health your body is actually in. In addition to addressing your pressing concerns, would you also like to become as healthy as you possibly can? If so, think about finding someone like me. Someone truly holistic, someone who will think outside the box and is happy to invest the time to help you not only be pain free, but to reach your health and wellness goals.
