Common Pains Our Chiropractor Relieves with Applied Kinesiology

Your body is an intricate, connected system, and dysfunction in the nervous system can manifest in a variety of ways. At Secrest Family Chiropractic, PC, we practice a technique known as applied kinesiology to help our chiropractic team better diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. This technique identifies muscle weakness that points to problems with the nervous system, blood supply or gland systems, allowing our team to get to the root cause of your problem, then uses a highly precise adjustment technique to reduce pain. Some conditions effectively treated using applied kinesiology include the following.

Neck Pain

The vertebrae in the neck are very delicate, and pulling them out of alignment is fairly easy, leading to neck pain and headaches. Applied kinesiology allows for precise adjustments of these vertebrae to relieve this common type of pain.

Back Pain

Treating back pain through chiropractic care requires finding the specific area of subluxation. Using the Koren Specific Technique, Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC, is able to locate the subluxation then use the ArthroStim adjustment device to precisely adjust your spine to improve back pain quickly.


Debilitating sciatica pain requires careful adjustment of the affected leg and vertebrae. Applied kinesiology improves the success of sciatica treatment, allowing you to be able to walk again.


Locating the specific source of your arthritis using applied kinesiology will improve the success of treatment and help stop the progression of this degenerative disease. Ultimately, the treatment helps reduce pain by targeting the correct area of the body and providing precise adjustment.


Whiplash occurs when the neck is extended forward and back quickly during an impact, such as during a car accident. Using applied kinesiology, our chiropractor can find the exact location of your neck injury to tailor treatment effectively. This is often combined with massage therapy and chiropractic adjustment.
