Injuries and muscle strains are a common occurrence for active individuals participating in sports, exercise or routine activities. Training for marathons or learning a new sport like tennis, soccer or field hockey, for example, can impact areas of the body that may be out of balance, weak, or painful.
This video shows the strength in the Abductor Brevis muscle after Dr. Keith Lavender treated Marcus using the Advanced Muscle Integration Technique to assess the muscles and to re-activate the inhibited or non-functioning muscles.
When an injury does occur and the integrity of the muscle or muscle group is exceeded, the nerve centers that are contained around those muscles will shut down the affected muscles to minimize damage. When a muscle is injured, the body adapts and the pain may go away. Through that adaptation, the body becomes off balance putting more stress on another part of the body. Then, when you become active again or as time goes on, pain typically returns in the joint or muscle, or an old injury may re-occur. For example, a sprained right ankle, treated traditionally, could cause the left knee or hip to be painful as the body adapts to a weakened, injured ankle. The idea with AMIT and Chiropractic is to find the source of the problem and treat the cause, not the symptom.
