Applied Kinesiology in Westchester County, NY

Our Experts Blend Eastern & Western Health Concepts

In the early 1980s, Dr. Lerner was introduced to the work of Dr. George Goodheart, the father of the clinical science of Applied Kinesiology. Our dental practice uses applied kinesiology in Westchester County, NY, on a daily basis. It is based on an understanding of the relationships between the structure and biochemistry of our body and our emotions. As a field of study, it is a synthesis of the best Eastern and Western concepts of health and healing. This understanding is applied by means of Manual Muscle Testing, which is testing a muscle’s ability to function while attention is drawn to an area of the body.

Applied Kinesiology is used to:

  • Evaluate for bite stress imbalance between the bite of your teeth and your body
  • Diagnose fractured teeth
  • Diagnose and treat infections
  • Screen dental materials for individualized biocompatibility testing
  • Screen for the toxicity of failing root-canal-treated teeth
  • Diagnose and treat cavitations in the jaw bone
  • Test for nutritional deficiencies

How Applied Kinesiology Works

Applied Kinesiology is practiced by making use of the muscle reflex test phenomenon. In this test, the ability of a muscle to maintain the position of a limb (such as the arm) is evaluated by applying a gradually increasing controlled force to the end of the limb. For example, we might test the strength of the shoulder muscle (the deltoid) by having the patient extend their arm out parallel to the floor, and applying a graduated controlled force of a few pounds to their arm in the wrist area.

If the muscle we are testing functions normally, it will be able to resist our force and keep the arm stable. If at the same time we test a strong muscle, we also touch (therapy localizing) a reflex point (may be acupuncture or functional reflex point) on the patient’s body, we may find our previously strong muscle testing weak. This would indicate a functional disturbance in that aspect of the patient. Correction of the disturbance may be achieved in numerous ways depending on the nature of the problem.

Dr. Lerner shares his applied kinesiology techniques and how poor reflexes can be linked to poor oral health in this video.

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
