Has anyone studied it or been to a kinesiologist?

I've been searching for non-medicated/non-surgical relief from severe shoulder pain/loss of motion since early this spring, and I saw a kinesiologist yesterday.  I had immediate results...not a full return of complete range of motion, but definite improvement.  Last night was the first night I slept without pain in my whole upper back/shoulders/neck in several months!  He also found a small problem in one of my hips that was causing my leg to not move forward correctly, and my hamstring muscles weren't getting proper signals either, so that just made my body work harder to run (and run improperly)....and here I thought it was just my age creeping up on me! 

I'm not 100%, but I sure feel GREAT this morning!

Quoting livndaybyday:

They can be....they have to be some sort of medical professional is what I was told.  The man I saw studied chiropractic before he studied kinesiology.  Most of his treatment of me was a series of joint/muscle movements, sharp taps in various areas of joints/muscles, massage, and resistance exercises.  I did have 3 vertebrae in my neck and 2 in my upper back out of alignment, and one of the ends of my ribs in my back was misaligned.  He used chiropractic techniques to realign those.

Yay!  I find kinesiology fascinating (but then, the body and nutrition and non-pharmaceutical measures of handling health are my thing!).  I have a couple of friends who have pursued it and love it.

I got a degree in kinesiology but it was a teaching emphasis.
