Applied Kinesiology (A.K.)

Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) uses a muscle testing system, developed by Dr. George Goodheart, Chiropractor, as a primary feedback method for diagnosis and effective treatment. A.K. is used in conjunction with traditional medical/chiropractic diagnostic methods, e.g., X-rays, blood-urine tests, etc. The A.K. technique is based on the concept that weakness in certain muscles oftentimes relates to specific illnesses or imbalances in the body that are causing health problems.

With over 35 years of chiropractic orthopedic and neurologic experience, together with the unique methodology of Applied Kinesiology, Dr. Lux is able to diagnosis whether the cause of your pain or health condition is due to:

  • Nervous system problems
  • Internal organ conditions
  • Emotions or stress
  • Acupuncture meridian imbalances
  • Nutritional deficiencies

Based on the Applied Kinesiology evaluation, recommendations are given for the most effective therapeutic programs to relieve pain and achieve optimum health.

The A.K. analysis may find, for example, that a weak shoulder muscle (deltoid) may indicate problems with the respiratory system (lungs, bronchitis).Very often thigh or leg muscles are weak due to kidney, bladder, intestinal, or sexual organ conditions. Chronic colitis, constipation, bladder, or kidney infections can cause muscle weaknesses, which may lead to hip or leg problems. Based on the kinesiological analysis, these adverse conditions can be corrected, without drugs, utilizing chiropractic, acupuncture, and nutritional therapy. When the organ condition heals, the muscle strength will return to normal.

A.K. is also very effective for sports injuries and muscle weakness which can often be strengthened immediately – a valuable benefit for enhanced sports performance.

Dr. Lux received certification in Applied Kinesiology in 1998. He is the only certified Applied Kinesiologist in Jerusalem offering this unique diagnostic and treatment methodology to help many people with chronic or difficult health conditions.
