How Kinesiology Can Improve Your Function

Maintaining good overall health is important whether you’re age 80, a high performing athlete, or just looking to get the most out of life. If you want to function at a high level or relieve chronic pain, kinesiology can help.

Kinesiology is a scientific study of human movement and how it affects health and well-being. Kinesiology can be applied to rehabilitation, conditioning, and strength programs to give you the road map you need for a healthy body. With this road map in hand, John Hunt, DC, and his team at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora can make the most of your corrective chiropractic care by targeting the exact areas you need treatment in.

Whether you feel well and want to function even better, or you're dealing with muscle and ligament injuries, a herniated disc, sciatica, or arthritis, we’re committed to promoting your overall wellness and improving your quality of life. That’s why we’re excited to share with you the benefits of kinesiology.

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology involves a deep dive into the principles of anatomy, biomechanics, neuroscience, psychology, and physiology, but at its core it’s the study of how the human body moves, functions, and performs. 

Here at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, we practice the Janda approach, which looks at muscle imbalances ― also known as upper and lower crossed syndrome. By examining postural anomalies and muscle imbalances, we can effectively treat chronic pain by putting your structures back in line. We can also integrate neuromusculoskeletal treatments for additional help. 

Among the many benefits of kinesiology, this scientific discipline can help with the following:

Address the root causes of pain

By understanding which muscles work well and which ones don’t, your provider can see different stresses these imbalances may be placing on your body. And by addressing these stresses, your provider can zero in on areas that may be the sources of pain. 

Maximize performance

Since kinesiology is basically a deep dive into how your body moves, it can help provide a road map for how to operate at your fullest potential. Kinesiology can help show which muscles are being overused. 

With this information in hand, your provider can help you prevent overuse injuries in the future. And by knowing where you need to build strength, you can take your performance to the next level. Avoiding injury and working at an optimum level is a winning combination. 

Boost immunity

Another important benefit of having your body be in proper homeostasis is that it can help boost your immune system. When there is a muscular or spinal misalignment, these conditions can stress out the body causing it to over work and weaken the immune system response. 

But when you remove these stressors by restoring balance and aligning the body, your immune system will naturally be able to function the way it was intended too, without interference. With kinesiology providing the road map, your provider can use chiropractic care to address the sources of pain or limited function. And when your body works better, your immune system will, too.
