What is Advanced Muscle Integration Technique or AMIT? AMIT is a systematic approach to assessing, diagnosing and treating injuries and joint and muscle conditions that many people experience. The muscles in the body are analyzed for their ability to function. When there is a trauma or overuse of a muscle, the central nervous system will “shut down” the muscle and recruit other muscle to take over the load. This can cause imbalances and future injuries, as the muscle doesn’t fire appropriately or absorb the shock efficiently.
In this video, Dr. Lavender is testing Dian’s transverse abdominis upper muscles and found them to be “shut off”. Notice the weakness and her inability to resist the pressure. After treating, as you will see in the next video, the muscle begins to function again and is much stronger. As Dian exercises, the muscle is now able to gain strength. With the abdominal muscle working properly, often the low back pain will vanish.
