Sprained ankles are very common for athletes and many individuals. Over 25,000 people a day sprain their ankle and over 1 million people a year visit the emergency room because of these injuries according to WebMD.
Chiropractic can absolutely help with a sprained ankle, especially when the Doctor is also an Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (or AMIT) practitioner!
In this video, Dr. Keith Lavender, D.C., B.C.A.O. is testing individual muscles and muscle groups to access strength. Once muscle imbalances have been located, correction is done using the AMIT Method.
When ankles don’t function properly, the whole body is affected. Muscles become sore and strained to compensate for the imbalances and the muscles that aren’t functioning properly. This sets up the perfect storm for more injuries, and knee, hip, and back pain. Pain and chronic issues begin when ankle sprains are not treated correctly or are misdiagnosed.
AMIT is a revolutionary advancement in accelerating healing and increasing human performance naturally. Certified AMIT doctors are trained to isolate specific muscles and muscle divisions for proper function. Healing and recovery is rapid without the need of drugs or surgery for acute and chronic conditions. Future injuries can be predicted and prevented by identifying and correcting the instabilities in the body.
