Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology (AK), developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964, uses bioenergetic feedback through testing the strength of various muscles in the body. Dr. Nelson uses this highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis–also called muscle response testing (MRT)–to assess various aspects of a patient’s state of health. This includes evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians, and nutritional status. Dr. Nelson uses muscle response testing to help identify the inter-relationships of body systems, allowing him to provide truly holistic health care to his patients.
Dr. Nelson uses AK to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.
“One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment!”
Nutritional counseling appointments are available in office or by phone. The supplements and medical foods we recommend are from the highest quality, pharmaceutical grade nutritional lines. Using a combination of in office diagnostic testing and thorough evaluation we can get to the root of your problems.
As a community service to businesses, churches, and other organizations, Dr. Nelson is available for on-site seminars and health talks. Allow us to educate your staff on how to prevent conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, shoulder pain and low back pain. In addition to workplace education, we are also available for general health and wellness seminars. Please contact us for availability and booking.
Dr. Nelson knows how to use nutritional supplements to treat a wide variety of conditions. From treating infections (sinus, respiratory, intestinal, etc.) with herbal remedies and detoxifying the liver with medical foods to normalizing female hormones and easing arthritis pain with supplements, Dr. Nelson’s recommendations are safe and highly effective.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment
The SFMA is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.
This systematic process allows clinicians to clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient. This model efficiently integrates the concepts of altered motor control, the neurodevelopmental perspective, and regional interdependence into musculoskeletal practice.
