Did you ever wonder why you have repeated muscles injuries, accidents or generalized pain throughout your body? The root cause 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.
The good news is there is an effective treatment for muscle issues. It’s called Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, or AMIT.
In this video, Dr. Keith Lavender, DC is checking for muscles that are not functioning properly, using Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT). You can see that Marcus, an avid football and baseball player, does not have the strength to resist even the slightest pressure as Dr. Lavender tests different muscles. Dr. Lavender has isolated the muscle and determined the Abductor Brevis muscle to be “shut down,” He will reactivate the muscle to optimize its performance and integrate into the body to prevent future injury and increase athletic performance.
Using Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, a certified practitioner is able to re-activate “shut-down” muscles. In the next video, you can see the difference in muscle strength after treatment.
The Abductor Brevis muscle is important in stabilizing left and right movements, and when playing football, soccer or swimming these muscles come into critical play for an athlete. For active individuals, this muscle is important for balance and when running, jumping and squatting.
