What Makes You Different Than Traditional Chiropractors?
The amazing thing about Applied Kinesiology is that it will show us the weakest link in your body. This means that the muscles that SHOULD be supporting your joints may not be doing its job. Then, other muscles will compensate and get tight and painful. Dr. Jacobi finds the muscles that are not working and through AK gets them back online. We want all the muscles to be activated so we limit injuries and also improve performance.
Dr. Jacobi will also look for other reasons that could cause your body not to heal well after an injury OR not recover after a workout. She loves to test nutrition and supplements to see if you may need some additional help at home to allow your body to heal.
What Conditions Can You Help With?
Typically the "Condition" a patient says or were told that they have is not the true root cause. Many times the condition that you have is caused by something else not working in the body. Dr. Jacobi works with a lot of athletes with: plantar fasciitis, hip pain, IT band pain, recurrent ankle sprains, foot pain, hamstring complaints, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, runners knee, etc. But remember, it doesn't matter what "condition" you have, Dr. Jacobi will uncover the root reason for the particular symptom.
