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. Brist 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. Brist 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. Brist 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!

Cold Laser Therapy

Where is this being used?

The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction procedures.

How does it work?

When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.

Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:

  • tendonitis
  • frozen shoulder
  • fractures
  • post-operative wounds
  • sprain-strains
  • scar tissue
  • chronic or acute pain
  • wound healing
  • arthritis
  • migraines
  • disc herniations
  • minor nerve damage
  • carpal tunnel syndrome

Nutritional Counseling

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. In most cases, these items can be shipped directly to your location. When possible, nutritional consultations are often combined with Applied Kinesiology testing. In this way, Dr. Brist can select products that are most compatible with your body's biochemical individuality. For example, if you have a bacterial infection, several herbal, homeopathic, and vitamin-based remedies could provide support for your body to overcome that infection. Applied Kinesiology testing eliminates most of the trial and error and helps Dr. Brist zero in on the remedy or remedies that are most likely to help you.

Because your feet are your foundation, Dr. Brist pays special attention to their stability and function. Many people have fallen arches or dropped ankles. This can cause not only foot pain and fatigue, but also structural problems in the rest of the body. Aching legs, knee pain, pain along the outside of the thigh, low back or hip pain, pain between the shoulder blades, and even headaches can result from fallen arches. Dr. Brist fits his patients who need them with Super Feet foot orthotics. Many orthotics are made by stepping into a mold, which duplicates the fallen arch. In contrast, Super Feet orthotics are made with the foot in a non-weight-bearing position so that the orthotic can support your foot in its optimal position. Super Feet orthotics offer the both stability and flexibility and have been proven to reduce or eliminate low back pain in clinical studies. Super Feet orthotics are affordable, and you can wear them home the same day. Be sure to contact our office before purchasing foot orthotics for you or anyone in your family.
