Dr. Keith Lavender determined the rectus femoris muscle was not firing properly and through Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT), he was able to isolate the muscle and reactivate engaging the nuero-muscular system. Now you are able to clearly see the difference and Lori is able to easily lift her legs.
The move may seem simple, but the rectus femoris muscle is the main muscle in the thigh that can flex the hip and is responsible for knee extensions and hip and thigh flexion. This muscle is critical for athletes kicking a football, soccer, and in cycling.
A certified AMIT practitioner can test and identify specific muscles and muscle groups that are not functioning properly. When muscles are “turned off”, what we call aberrant, you may not imbalances, muscle and joint pain, or as Lori experienced, the inability to perform certain activities. Muscles can become aberrant from injury, repetitive motions, or when they are overloaded. The central nervous system acts much like a circuit breaker in a house, shutting down muscles to protect from further injury and trauma. It will recruit other muscles to compensate. This can begin chronic pain or frequent injuries as the imbalances continue.
