Kinesiology Looks Beyond Symptoms to Find the Cause of Your Health Issues.

Kinesiology system | Chiropractic Gold Coast | Dr Keith Maitland

Dr Keith uses an internationally recognised Kinesiology system to look at the whole person. Starting with the spine Dr Keith determines what is causing your pain. 

Kinesiology is the name given to a diagnostic system that uses a simple muscle test to detect blocks and imbalances in the body. It is a muscle getting stronger or weaker that tells the skilled practitioner what is going on in the patient’s body. Dr Keith uses this feedback mechanism to determine what treatment is required to correct a patient's problem.

  • Muscular / skeletal pain

  • Insomnia, poor sleep
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression

  • Many more... Just ask!

Our kinesiology system is a diagnostic tool which uses muscle testing as the primary feedback mechanism.

Once we have assessed your body to discover what is needed for you to live a pain free life, we implement the corrections that your body has indicated, using the best technique available to alleviate your pain as quickly as possible.

These Kinesiology corrections can be:

  • Structural -a Chiropractic adjustment to the spine, shoulders, hip bones etc.
  • Nutritional - Identifying the foods/supplements that strengthen your body and eliminate what doesn’t
  • Chemical.: Identifying allergens & toxins that need eliminating.
  • Emotional - Releasing locked in negative emotions.

What is Gold Coast Kinesiology all about?

  • The strength of Dr Keith's Kinesiology on the Gold Coast is that it’s a comprehensive system that draws upon and integrates many natural/complementary medical processes such as:Integrating the latest in advanced nutrition, detoxification and alkalization techniques.
  • Our kinesiology system is a diagnostic tool which uses muscle testing as the primary feedback mechanism.

Firstly, we identify a “test” muscle that can be used as a biofeedback back mechanism. Then, using this muscle we examine how your body is functioning. It is a fascinating and fantastic method for determining causes of pain.

This technique is used by thousands of registered health professionals throughout the world including chiropractors, osteopaths, medical doctors, dentists and physiotherapists. It was developed in the mid 1960’s by Dr George Goodheart, and Dr Keith was lucky enough to study with him in 1987 when he became a Diplomate of the International Board of Applied Kinesiology.

A.K. (Applied Kinesiology) can be used to find: spinal, cranial, extremity, muscle, ligament problems, allergy, general toxicity, heavy metal and chemical toxicities, parasites, candida /fungus, and emotional problems, all of which can be contributing to our health problems. It also helps us diagnose nutritional deficiencies and the supplements and dosage that are required to rectify the situation.

To get the best results from our Applied Kinesiology test, we find a muscle that tests weak, and then we attempt to determine why the muscle is not working correctly, his then enables us to determine the best form of treatment for you.

Therapies may include chiropractic spinal adjusting, cranial techniques, myofascial therapies, clinical nutrition, dietary advice, and emotion/stress reducing procedures.

We may also test for environmental or food sensitivities by using a previously strong muscle and seeing what weakens it e.g. – chlorine, dairy, wheat/gluten, sugars, skin care products etc. Depending on the results, we might recommend nutritional supplements and/or a change of diet.

An extremely common cause of recurring health problems is mal-absorption. Decreased vitamin and mineral absorption can lead to decreased body function and pain.

An important aspect of our care is establishing what ingested products may be causing gut irritation and then also what can help restore proper absorption.

Applied Kinesiology can also determine whether muscle weakness and health complications are being caused by mental thought processes.

As a health practitioner, I use the triad of health as my model. This shows that there are 3 basic causes of disease:

  1. Structural imbalance;
  2. Chemical imbalance which includes nutritional deficiencies, acidosis, toxicity (including environmental toxins
  3. Emotional Imbalance.

The triad of health is interactive, a problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides e.g. a chemical imbalance may cause mental/emotional problems.

Applied Kinesiology enables the practitioner to evaluate the triad’s balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides. For more information on A.K. you can go to
