What is sports and holistic chiropractor?
Dr. Best utilizes a unique blend of techniques that sets him apart from other chiropractors.
Dr. Ken Best has studied and utilizes more than 10 different chiropractor techniques and blends them together with the use of Applied Kinesiology (AK) for a holistic healing. Applied Kinesiology is a great diagnostic tool to maximize the benefits of any chiropractic technique as well as balancing the meridians (energy lines) of the body typically associated with acupuncture. Treatments are tailored to each individual using AK and apply gentle chiropractic adjustments. Learn more about AK
Muscle testing is especially important when it comes to Sports Chiropractic, as any fine tuned athlete knows the importance of balanced integrity of the musculoskeletal system. What you may not know is how hidden muscle weaknesses can predispose the body to injury. For instance, a reactive muscle syndrome can cause a strong muscle to weaken after contraction of an antagonistic (opposing) muscle, which is constantly happening during any sport activity. The 'temporarily' weakened or inhibited muscle then can not perform to its maximum level which creates an imbalance in symmetry, decreased performance and possible injury.
Dr. Best can find these inhibited weak muscles through AK and is then able to isolate which of the 5 factors may be causing this weakness in order to "turn the muscle back on" and rebalance the body. Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture points, flow of cerebral spinal fluid and the lymphatic system are essential in this process.
Brimhall Chiropractic Protocols and Equipment.
Dr. Best Chiropractor has been trained in the Brimhall Chiropractic Wellness protocols which utilizes cold laser therapy from Erchonia and 4W Laser from LZR7. The 4W laser is great for acute and chronic injuries while the Erchonia cold laser up regulates the nervous system, which is one of the main goals of the best chiropractors, by emitting a unique wavelength and specific frequencies that increase cellular communication and healing. Instantaneous changes can be seen through strengthening of previously weakened muscles.
Cellular matrix stimulation and body balancing are among the many benefits laser therapy. Other chiropractic physiotherapy may include: interferential current, percussion, and bio meridian stimulation. For chiropractic patients who prefer more low force adjusting Dr. Ken Best Chiropractor is trained to the use Activator Methods™ adjusting and the IMPAC Adjustor.
Dr. Best chiropractor also provides biofeedback for body balancing. More on BioFeedback ...
Dr. Best Chiropractor Techniques Offered.
Applied Kinesiology is a system developed by chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart, D.C., to study the reaction of the body to muscle stimulus. The chiropractor can find either strong or weak muscles through manual muscle testing. Each muscle has a relationship to various organs and meridians of the body.
The chiropractor can utilize this process to help determine what correction need to be made in order to strengthen the body, whether it is physical, chemical or emotional in its origin.
This is not like most chiropractors or other types of practitioners who say they do "muscle testing." Dr. Best is an ICAK certified practitioner of AK. Dr. Best has study more than 1,000 hours of this specific technique and has taught hundreds of others chiropractors the practice of AK through the ICAK. Reliability in testing comes with experience. Learn more about AK.
Activator Methods and Low-Force Adjusting
Dr. Best is proficient in many manual chiropractic adjusting techniques, including Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, but may also use "LOW-FORCE" adjusting (aka non-force).
Primarily in low force chiropractic adjusting Dr. Best uses the Activator adjustment. Corrections are made possible because all the force from the instrument is applied to a very small specific area of the spine.
This provides not only very specific chiropractic adjusting, but does so because the body creates very little resistance to the Activator instrument as mechanoreceptors barely engage, allowing for improved movement in the area being adjusted. Activator Methods is a specific chiropractic technique.
The basic concept and philosophy of chiropractic is to restore normal motion and alignment of the spine and extremities, while improving the muscular strength and integrity of the ligaments which maintain the alignment.
The chiropractor may employ many different techniques to restore and maintain proper joint bio mechanics.
This is so vital as the communication from the brain to body is via the nervous system which is only as good as the proper movement of the joints. The chiropractor evaluates the functioning of your nervous system through motion palpation.

Dr. Ken Best realizes that there are 3 influences in the Triad of Health. Any stress in these three areas: structural, chemical and emotional - can adversely affect a person's health.
Chiropractic adjusting, core building and physiotherapy treat the structure.
Nutritional imbalances and environmental exposure to toxins affect the chemical stress of the body, which in turn can affect the mind. Dr. Best provides personalized nutritional testing.
Meditation, visualization and reconnecting with nature and source are practices that can be used to nurture the mind and spirit.
All elements need to be balanced in the body for perfect health.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic, as practiced by Dr. Best chiropractor, is a holistic approach for maintaining optimal health. Proper functioning of the nervous system is predicated upon healthy moving joints to supply information to the brain in order for the body to be able to heal itself on an ongoing basis. "Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning "effective treatment by hand." Dr. Best chiropractor utilizes a more comprehensive form of chiropractic called Applied Kinesiology, which helps us look deeper into the body to find the underlying causes of dysfunction in the body.

What is a Chiropractor?
Chiropractors diagnose in the same way as medical doctors and study most of the same courses and study a similar number of hours in their education.
A chiropractor will diagnose your condition based upon findings from range of motion, palpation, muscle testing, orthopedic tests and other studies like x-ray or MRI when necessary to further evaluate a condition.
A chiropractor is licensed to treat muscular or skeletal disorders of the spine and the extremities including the shoulders, hands, knees and feet.
A chiropractor addresses your condition by adjustments of the spine and extremities, and when necessary uses physiotherapy such as electrical muscle stimulation, manual therapy, kinetic exercises, ultrasound and infrared to name a few.
Typically a chiropractor will adjust the spine to increase the mobilization of joints that have become dysfunctional. The importance of this is that it reestablishes the joint's proprioceptive mechanisms so the body can heal itself. Read more on subluxation on the spine.
While a chiropractor may not treat directly some disorders of the body like I.B.S. or asthma, many patients find improvement of many such conditions by facilitating the body to heal itself through chiropractic treatments.
You may seek treatment of a chiropractor directly for conditions such as back pain, neck pain, hip pain, arm or leg pain, headaches, shoulder pain, radiating pain, sharp and shooting pain, frozen shoulder, disc herniation, TMJ syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, knee pain, among others.
What can a chiropractor help with?
A chiropractor can help with many more problems than just aches and pains because chiropractic reduces stress as well as addresses particular injuries. Reducing stress can alleviate an entire gambit of problems including headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, muscle twitches, stress out-breaks of skin disorders and muscle twitching, chronic fatigue, myofascial problems like fibromyalgia, irritability and depressed moods.
Often people don't realize chiropractic is able to safely and effectively treat sciatica, disc disorders, shoulder pain, knee pain, rib pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ syndrome, tennis elbow, in addition to the common back pain and neck pain. Dr. Best especially finds with AK and chiropractic amazing results working with shoulder and rotator cuff injuries often preventing the need for surgery.
