Kim is re-testing her muscle strength after her Advanced Muscle Integration Technique treatment.
After a mountain biking accident, Kim was in significant pain, had muscle weakness, limited range of motion, and was not able to do all of the activities that she loved to do or even keep up with her regular exercise routine.
Kim began seeing Dr. Keith Lavender, who is a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal specialist, and found relief to much of the pain she was experiencing and improved range of motion. Through chiropractic care her overall health and physical stamina improved but she still struggled with her workouts. Dr. Lavender determined through Advanced Muscle Integration Technique or A.M.I.T., several muscles had been shut down which made other muscles "take over" to compensate. This can lead to more injuries,stress, and inbalances in the body. The central nervous system, which controls and coordinates every other system in the body, acts much like a circuit breaker. The nervous system will "shut down" muscles to prevent further tears or injury. Through A.M.I.T., using 7 different reflex and tissue points,inactivated muscles can be re-integrated, balancing the body, optimizing performance and helping to prevent future injuries.
