Applied Kinesiology/Quintessential Applications:
The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad. This is not new to chiropractic, as its founder, D.D. Palmer states in his text, “The Science, Art, and Philosophy of Chiropractic,” “The determining causes of disease are traumatism, poison and autosuggestion.” AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad’s functional balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides.
The physician who is aware of the triad of health, and evaluates every patient for all three sides, increases his ability to find the basic underlying cause of a patient´s health problem. AK skills are developed and approved by the International College of Applied Kinesiology Board of Standards.

The doctors provide expert treatment and knowledge in healing soft tissues in their detailed treatment plan. A variety of treatments include:
Active Release Technique (ART)- soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles
Therapeutic Exercises- refers to a wide range of physical activities that focuses on restoring and maintaining strength, endurance, flexibility, stability and balance. The goal of therapeutic exercises is to return an injured patient to a fully functioning, pain-free state.
Interferential current therapy is an effective therapy option used by many clinics to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, pain free-state. The high frequency signals of an IFC penetrate through the skin into deeper lying muscle tissues.
This treatment delivers extremely low-frequency electrical impulses that stabilize and energize injured tissues. The microcurrent apparatus used by Terrell Owens simply referred to as microcurrent therapy. It’s a passive therapy. You simply sit or lie in a recliner while targeted, exceptionally low currents—so low you can’t feel them—are transmitted to strategic locations via electrodes. The premise behind micro current therapy, according to leading authority Dr. Carolyn McMakin, is that all cells and tissues have unique electrical signatures, and when these specific frequencies are delivered to affected areas, healing occurs.
Anyone who adds microcurrent therapy to their treatments sessions will benefit with greater range of motion, reduction in muscle pain, and enhanced blood flow throughout the body. The FDA-approved treatment typically lasts 30 minutes, but several sessions are recommended. Microcurrent therapy is not recommended for patients with pacemakers or pregnancy. Specifically, we add microcurrent therapy to patients suffering from:
- Carpal Tunnel Neuralgia
- Chronic Pain
- Concussions, Athletic Injuries
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Musculoskeletal pain, Sprains
