FIRST APPOINTMENT? WHICH APPOINTMENT SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
This depends on whether you are wanting to address your health as a whole or simply manage an acute complaint. At Compton Chiropractic & Functional Health Care you can choose the extent of your care. For some, regular chiropractic care is enough to keep them functioning at their best. For others, especially those with chronic pain, inflammation & health conditions, further help is needed. That is where Applied Kinesiology and a Functional Medicine approach can be extremely beneficial.
Applied kinesiology (or AK for short) is a form of diagnosis through muscle testing to examine how a person’s body is functioning on a structural, chemical or emotional level. It does not detect disease or pathology but looks to address a poorly functioning body naturally through structural / tissue adjustments, dietary & lifestyle changes, & nutritional supplements.
Functional Medicine utilizes the latest research findings on supplements, diet and other natural tools for restoring balance in the body's primary physiological processes. It asks why has function been lost and what can be done to restore function naturally? Functional lab testing (not typically available through your GP) can be utilized to help look for the underlying causes of health concerns.
AK testing is used within a chiropractic appointment to look further into structural issues but for a thorough assessment of all aspects of your health, it is best to select the Applied Kinesiology and Functional Medicine Initial Consult.
