Kinesiology is the study of muscle, and is commonly used by physicians in the form of muscle testing. Dr. Chau uses muscle testing to evaluate structural, functional and biochemical systems. This specialty allows him to check for structural misalignment, organ and gland imbalance, nutritional need, and allergy ( food, chemical and seasonal ).


This article is about the scientific study of human movement. For the alternative medicine technique, see Applied kinesiology.

Kinesiology is a scientific study of human or non-human body movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, biomechanical, and psychological mechanisms of movement. Applications of kinesiology to human health (i.e. human Kinesiology) include biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.[1][2]

Kinesiology as described above should not be confused with applied kinesiology, a controversial[3][4][5] medical diagnostic method.
