A very well known Diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology, Dr. Timothy D. Francis maintains a well-established Las Vegas practice. He emphasizes an applied kinesiology (AK) approach to treating illnesses that incorporate homeopathic practices. One of many conditions that benefits from AK treatment is golfers elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis.

The AK approach would involve extensive testing of the stability of major muscles, ligaments, and supportive tissues, as well as meridians and nerve supply to the joint.

A form of tendinitis, golfer’s elbow occurs through repeated micro trauma, in which the elbow is used habitually in a way that compromises its stability and the underlying muscle support system. This is often the result of a hidden cervical disc. Specialized treatment would be tailored to specific injured elements, such as muscles, ligaments, joints, skin, and the spine.

This would be followed by corrective procedures that enable muscles to be coordinated and used in ways that prevent a recurrence of the elbow injury. As a way of reducing inflammation, nutritional guidelines would be set up and homeopathic treatments possibly prescribed. In addition, an overarching program of lifestyle modification would be set in place.
