Marcus is an avid baseball player. It is an important part of his life and not playing is not an option.
After sliding into a base during a game, he began noticing his stride was a little different and his knee began to bother him. He is being tested by Dr. Keith Lavender, D.C. who is an Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) certified practitioner and Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical specialist.
When muscles or the tissue have been injured or overloaded, the brain and nervous system act much like a circuit breaker and “shut down” the load to that particular muscle or muscle group. Other muscles are then recruited to pick up the load. If not corrected quickly after the injury, the body will adapt and this can set up the potential for future injuries, pain and imbalances.
