More than ever before, members of the health care community have begun to embrace the notion of a more productive existence through better living. Now, it involves a whole-body commitment that includes a focus on better nutrition and lifestyle choices, along with chiropractic care, to achieve better health. This more proactive thought process has begun to yield positive results.
While chiropractors have long been advocates for a natural solution for better health, their voices are now being heard by others. Not only does the chiropractic adjustment provide relief from pain and discomfort, it can also eliminate the need for pain killers, which can lead to addiction.
In addition, regular exercise, proper diet, and vitamins have proven to be an integral part of extending life expectancy.
By encouraging the use of chiropractic care in conjunction with other positive contributing factors, the doctor of chiropractic is no longer just a health care provider, but in some cases, an exercise consultant, nutritional guru, wellness advisor and more, all in the quest for better patient health.
Yes, there are THREE (3)
The purpose of the Applied Kinesiology (AK) club is to provide a supervised, academic arena to discuss and investigate current concepts within the diagnostic technique known as Applied Kinesiology.
In meetings members will explore the relationships between structural, chemical, and mental faults as it relates to the “triad of health,” introduced by George Goodheart, D.C. Club members will refine their functional assessment skills in posture analysis, gait analysis, muscle testing, and static/motion palpation as it relates to AK.
The purpose of the club is to provide a way for students to learn how to practically implement nutrition and lifestyle changes in clinical practice. The goal is to teach, expose, and inspire students to practice in a holistic manner using diet, nutrition, lifestyle changes, and diagnostic testing.
Students are educated about the importance of pediatric care within the chiropractic profession and are provided with the knowledge and techniques needed to give proper care to the pediatric patient.
Motion Palpation Club
Motion Palpation is a “hands-on,” diagnostic club. Members of the club practice finding motion restrictions (e.g. subluxations) in the spine as well as the extremities. They then employ both clinical neurology and biomechanics.
Although hands-on, it is not an adjusting club. Club members do not endorse or subscribe to any one technique.
