Does foot or ankle pain slow you down? Do you avoid some of the activities you love because of stiffness or pain? In this video, Dr. Lavender is retesting the muscle strength in Yvonne's toes after re-activating muscles that were "shut down". When muscles are shut down or not functioning properly, other muscles or muscle groups must compensate. This can cause imbalance and pain. It is frequently the cause of plantar fasciitis. You can see the difference in muscle strength in this video from the previous video before treatment.
Certified Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) practitioners are doctors trained to isolate specific muscles and muscle divisions for proper function. Following the initial core muscle testing exam, the AMIT doctor has a blueprint of the muscles that are and are not functioning properly. Those not functioning properly are termed aberrant. Once aberrant muscles are identified, AMIT is used to restore the specific muscle or muscle division back to proper function within the neuro-muscular system.
Muscles become aberrant when a muscle or tissue is overloaded. The position and pressure sensors (proprioceptors) within muscle tissues become inhibited causing the muscle to "give way" when loaded. The body's response, handled by the brain and the nervous system, acts much like a circuit breaker in a house, protecting from additional damage to the overloaded tissues. The body will compensate by increasing stress to supporting tissues.
