Wow! In this video, it's easy to see the difference after Dr. Keith Lavender has identified the aberrant muscles and treated them with Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) on this young athlete. She now has strength and is able to resist pressure on both legs.
The popliteus muscle is the major stabilizer for the knee and assists in flexing the leg. When in a weight bearing state, it is responsible for rotating the femur on the tibia. Pain in the back of the knee is a common complaint among athletes.
When there is injury, over use, or strain to a muscle or muscle group, the brain and nervous system will act much like a circuit breaker does in your house. It will “shut off” muscles to protect from further damage. No amount of massage or exercise will strengthen the muscle until it has been “turned back on”.
