plantation chiropractor muscle testing

Your Plantation Chiropractor, Dr. Lisa Owen, does a lot of muscle testing because muscle testing provides a window into what is happening the body, whether structural, neurological, biochemical, or emotional.   Muscles through the nervous system connect to the brain and provide feedback; just as a polygraph test registers a negative or “nervous” reaction when you have gotten your facts wrong, your body responds when tested to different stimuli.  This enables the AK doctor to find out what is unique about you.   Applied Kinesiology has expanded to include other therapies such acupuncture, nutritional therapies and much more.  Muscle testing allows the chiropractor to find out what is not functioning properly, and how help your body do what it is trying to do, and that is heal itself.

Muscle testing was developed by serendipitously by chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart, an amazing chiropractor.  Throughout his lifetime of observation, testing, teaching and treating, he developed several cutting edge techniques based on his method of speaking to the body through muscle testing.   These roots of muscle testing have resulted in many skilled professionals adopting his work and developing other related modalities and methods of connecting with the body and treating structural, emotional and physical disease.  Dr. Owen, your Plantation, Fl, Chiropractor, learned Muscle Testing directly from Dr. Wally Schmitt, Dr. Goodheart’s next door neighbor as a child, who grew up impressed as to how this man was able to heal so many people who weren’t able to get help elsewhere.  Wally got to be his regular guinea pig and avid student, great chiropractor and teacher.


Dr. Owen does recommend a lot of lab testing in the office.  Some lab tests such as Hormone Testing, Genetic Testing, Hair Strand Testing, even Blood Tests can provide a massive amount of information.  Most of us don’t want to take or can’t take dozens of vitamins or drugs per day.  Muscle testing helps your body tell us what it going to work.  Muscle testing is not used by itself to diagnose disease, but verified with clinical finding.   Remedies tested are based on scientific studies.

Muscle testing is a safe natural way to diagnose and treat any health condition.
