Why do we have repeated injuries or some people seem to have accidents more often than others? Imbalances can be caused when a muscle or muscle group is not functioning properly and the brain recruits other muscles to compensate. This can lead to pain, weakness and injury.
In this video, Dr. Keith Lavender, D.C. is checking for muscles that are not functioning properly using Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT). Marcus, an avid football and baseball player, does not have strength to resist even the slightest pressure as Dr. Lavender is testing different muscles. Dr. Lavender has isolated and determined the Abductor Brevis muscle to be “shut down” and re-activation will help to optimize the body and to prevent future injuries increasing Marcus' athletic ability.
Using Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, a certified practitioner is able to re-activate the muscles and 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 in to critical play for an athlete. For active individuals that workout, this muscle is important for balance and when running, jumping and doing squats.
