Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system. Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counseling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.

Dr. McDonald often uses these techniques with athletes that treat in the office to assess and correct muscle imbalances that may be impeding their athletic performance due to injury or repetitive bad habits. She also utilizes this technique to treat patients with symptoms that have been resistant to normal chiropractic care.
