It incorporates aspects of both chiropractic and acupuncture and falls within the category of alternative medicine in Rochester NY. As a chiropractic physician in Detroit, Dr. Goodheart discovered the importance of body posture as it relates to structure and function in the body. When observing a patient in a neutral standing posture such anomalies as a high unilateral shoulder or rotated hip were indicative of some stress in the body, be it was structural, chemical or emotional as stress can take on different forms. However through careful observation and deductive reasoning Dr Goodheart was able to map out many neurological circuits in the body to find hidden reasons for the cause of disease or imbalance. Since he was a chiropractor much of his work was in the area of skeletal structural. However his research also encompassed the other major eleven systems of the body such as circulation, digestion and the immune system. Such concepts as the vertebrae challenge and therapy localization are unique to Applied Kinesiology but are useful tools in finding the hidden cause of many diseases.
