I have been bringing my son in to see Dr. Larsen for almost 2 years now. My sister recommended him to me because he was able to help her children with several issues, so I thought I would give him a try too.
My son was 12 years old then and playing tennis competitively (he is 14 now). He started having pain in his knees. A visit to an orthopedic doctor and x-rays determined there was no joint issue and he was sent to physical therapy for muscle strengthening exercises. Despite physical therapy, his knee pain continued to plague him on and off for months. Then I brought him in to see Dr. Larsen. He was able to make various adjustments and using special taping of his legs helped him with this trouble.
Around the same time frame my son was having problems with right arm tightness and pain. Dr. Larsen identified that his biceps muscle was no longer working properly resulting in overuse of his triceps muscle as a result of an allergy/sensitivity to corn. Taking him off all corn products resolved the issue within days.
My son was also sick fairly frequently during the winter, especially with throat infections. Dr. Larsen told us his immune system was stressed (especially his adrenal glands) and recommended various ways to boost his immune system, including extra vitamins and Isagenix shakes. He has continued taking these for the past year and beginning about 4 months after taking them my son is now rarely sick and when he does become ill it is only for about 24 hours, rather than the usual 5-7 days like before.
I continue to bring my son to Dr. Larsen on a regular basis to assure his optimal health.Karen Minnetonka, MN ————————————————————————————————————————
These are two of the most common problems facing young athletes today. Adrenal stress and food sensitivities. With very little nutrition in the food and the increase in competitive training, young athletes are facing a slew of injuries. Diagnosing the problem is usually relatively easy utilizing applied kinesiology as it was in this case.
By returning balanced control to his nervous system, this young tennis player was able to regain control of his muscles to protect his joints.
For those of you who don’t know my background, an injury ended my athletic career. An injury that never would have happened, had I known of applied kinesiology. It is very rewarding being able to help young kids reach their potential.
