Dr. Timothy D. Francis, a chiropractor operating his own practice in Las Vegas, teaches applied kinesiology through the International College of Applied Kinesiology. Moreover, Dr. Timothy D. Francis contributes to his broader scholarly community as an associate editor of the Alternative Medicine Review.
When practitioners use applied kinesiology (AK), they attempt to measure health quality by evaluating manual muscle function. AK also includes a philosophical framework that breaks health down into three main categories: structural, mental, and chemical.
If a practitioner diagnoses a problem in any of these three areas through AK, he or she may recommend any number of treatments, including nutritional modifications and even acupuncture. AK is associated with chiropractic endeavors, which also emphasize musculoskeletal systems.
In fact, AK was discovered by Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., a chiropractor, after he made key clinical observations in the mid-1960s. Later, Dr. Goodheart developed and enriched AK by incorporating practices like acupuncture into it.
