Effective Therapy For Muscle and Joint Pain
Are old injuries plaguing you, or you’re feeling tired and sore, or your muscles just don’t seem to be working properly and hard to strengthen? Old injuries and chronic inflammation, repetitive motion and trauma can all cause muscle dysfunction.
Sports and wellness centers that are certified Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) practitioners see this on a daily basis and can effectively treat these conditions.
AMIT practitioners test individual muscles and muscle groups, checking for weakness and instability. Those muscles not functioning properly, once identified, are treated using the Advanced Muscle Integration Technique to “re-connect” or neurologically turn those muscles back on. AMIT has been used on Olympic and professional athletes for years and has been shown to treat chronic pain, muscle instability, acute injury recovery, balance, and minimize future injuries.
What causes muscle dysfunction? Trauma, falls, accidents, repetitive motion, and chronic inflammation all take a toll on the body. When your body experiences these stresses, the pain receptors message the brain and, as a way to prevent further injury, the brain may “shut down” or restrict movement of individual muscles much the way a circuit breaker will respond to overload. The inactivated area will typically ache or not respond to strengthening work, and may feel unbalanced due to surrounding muscles being recruited to compensate for the dysfunctional muscles.
Suppressing or ignoring the dysfunction sets in motion chronic pain, potential falls and future injuries.
How does AMIT work? After certified AMIT specialists have examined over 600+ muscles and tested for proper functioning, they identify the inhibited muscles and define body movement patterns that are not stable. Once identified, the AMIT treatment consists of stimulating seven specific reflex points and adjusting specific points on the spine. After each treatment, the practitioner will re-test the muscles to determine that they have been reactivated and are now strong.
