Applied Kinesiology: Clinical Application

expands on the concepts taught in Introduction to Applied Kinesiology by using muscle testing to diagnose muscle paresis or weakness. The diagnosis and treatment of cranial faults and their relationship to dural connected structures, particularly the pelvis is taught. TMJ anatomy and function are explained with methods for diagnosis and correction. Hand modes, as a means of differentially diagnosing differing structural, chemical, acupuncture and nutritional problems are taught as an important diagnostic approach. Hiatal hernia and ilio-caecal valve problems cause symptoms commonly misdiagnosed in clinical practice. A protocol for their detection and correction is included in the course.
