My name is Dr. Joel Vickers. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and I specialize in a diagnostic technique known as Applied Kinesiology.dr Joel vickers bio image

(Read the bullet points below to find out what applied kinesiology is and how it can benefit you!)

In March of 2014, I made the decision to come to Ann Arbor to help Dr. Schmidt with his clinic’s Chiropractic needs. Being trained by Dr. Schmidt in Nutrition Response Testing, I already understood how a patient’s nutritional status could impact their body’s ability to heal and “hold” its Chiropractic adjustments.

As a Doctor of Chiropractic who specializes in Applied Kinesiology, there are other services I can render at The Nutritional Healing Center of Ann Arbor that far surpass that of basic Chiropractic. For example, did you know:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may be caused by one or more muscles that hold the bones of your wrist and forearm together and is easily corrected.
  • Shoulder Injuries may or may not include damage to the rotator cuff muscles, which represent just FOUR of the TWENTY-SIX muscles that affect the shoulder joint.
  • Abdominal muscles that are turned off from being overstretched from pregnancy may be turned back on.
  • Neck pain and stiffness may be caused by an injury that occurred when you were just a toddler.
  • Headaches may be caused by a variety of musculoskeletal injuries that include (but are not limited to) automobile whiplash, athletic injuries, dental work, physical abuse, and trauma of any kind.
  • TMJ and dental trauma leading to cranial faults may cause your knees to hurt, foot and ankle instability, and low back pain (not to mention headaches and upper back pain).
  • Middle and upper back pain may be caused by muscles that are turned off on the front of your chest. How? More often than not, exercise, especially chest work (push-ups, bench presses, etc.) is the main culprit.
  • Low back pain is often caused by muscles not working…in your neck!
  • Hip pain can have as its origins, muscular weakness anywhere in the body.
  • Knee pain is often the result of falls, trauma, etc, but may also be caused by dental work…and is easily corrected.
  • Feet that feel weak and painful may have been injured during ankle sprains, which turn off foot muscles that need to be turned back on.

These are just a few of the common ailments that afflict human beings in general, but the list of complaints that Applied Kinesiology healing can help with is much longer.

As an Applied Kinesiologist with over 20 years of experience, I can help you with these conditions and more.
