Professional Applied Kinesiology (PAK) is an interdisciplinary approach to health care that draws together the core elements of many complementary therapies. Included in the Applied Kinesiology (AK) approach are specific joint manipulations or mobilization techniques, numerous myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, acupuncture meridian therapy, clinical nutrition, dietary management and various reflex procedures. AK is a diagnostic and therapeutic methodology employing manual muscle testing as a functional neurologic evaluation. Professionally trained manual muscle testing is essential to this methodology.


Functional Medicine involves understanding the etiology, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. It is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing assessment on the biochemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.


It is the study of entire nervous system and how it works. Functional neurology emphasizes the nervous system and indeed neuron as being the modulator of human expression and experience. In the practice of functional chiropractic neurology, the staff at Spectrum perform various tests and procedures.
