Relieve Planter Fasciitis with Advanced Muscle Integration Technique
Planter Fasciitis is painful! And unfortunately, it’s much more common that you think.
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation and injury to the foot which occurs from the stretching and/or partial rapture of the thick band of tissue on the sole of the foot that connects the heel bone to the toes. Without the proper support of the muscles in the foot, the arches of the foot gradually weaken, stretch, and put more strain on the plantar fascia.
Heel and arch pain are the common complaints associated with plantar fasciitis, which is caused by a variety of factors:
· Repetitive shock caused by heal strike from your gait or walking pattern
· Long periods of foot pronation (when the ankle rolls inward)
Quick foot acceleration and deceleration
· Hard landing on the sole of the foot
The AMIT Method (Advanced Muscle Integration Therapy) is a very effective treatment for plantar fasciitis, because it focuses on the core of the problem by re-activating muscles that are “turned off” and not supporting the foot properly. The body acts much like a circuit breaker in a house by “turning off” muscles that could be damaged or injured by certain activities. When the central nervous system “turns off” muscles, it will recruit other muscles to take over. This can cause muscle and joint pain. If muscles have been “turned off” or what is termed aberrant, massage, Tens unit, strengthening, etc. will not be effective.
