Have you ever experienced pain at your elbow and arm – perhaps to the degree that you couldn’t even pick up a glass of water as Trisha describes in this video? With this intense pain, lifting a small child, shaking hands or even opening a door can be very painful.
What people describe as tennis elbow or golf elbow is actually a form of tendinitis -- or swelling of the tendons. It can cause excruciating pain in the elbow and the arm, and can start from repetitive motion and playing sports, or from activities like carpentry, typing, painting, or knitting. Any activity that requires you to grip something, especially using the thumb and first few fingers, can contribute to tendinitis.
The root cause of repetitive motion pain is often muscle weakness and imbalance. Imbalance can be caused when a muscle or muscle group is not functioning properly and the brain recruits other muscles to compensate – leading to pain, weakness and injury.
And the good news is --- there is a solution!
The best solution may lie with a unique and revolutionary sports medicine technique called Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) – and it helps to accelerate healing, reduce or eliminate chronic pain, maximize body function and performance and help prevent future injuries.
The developers of the AMIT system discovered that a leading cause of pain is inhibited muscles resulting from overuse or injury. Although the pain of the injury may go away over time, the functional muscle imbalance remains. Eventually, these functional imbalances lead to chronic pain. By defining and correcting these imbalances, healing and rehabilitation can take place rapidly without the need for drugs or surgery.
AMIT practitioners can examine over 700 muscles and test for proper functioning. They specifically identify inhibited muscles and define body and joint movement patterns that are not stable and lead to injury and reduced performance.
Once inhibited muscles are identified, AMIT treatment consists of stimulating seven specific reflex points and then adjusting specific points on the spine. After stimulating these points, the AMIT practitioner will re-test the muscles to determine that they have been re-activated and are strong.
