Karen has been experiencing hip pain and has not been able to gain strength in particular muscles even though she would exercise and work at strengthening. Dr. Lavender is testing muscles to find which ones are not functioning properly or are aberrant. After determining which muscles are aberrant, he will use the Advanced Muscle Integration Technique to re-activate the muscles.
AMIT (Advanced Muscle Integration Therapy) is a revolutionary advancement in sports medicine and chiropractic care. It is based on an understanding that when a muscle is overloaded beyond that which it can sustain, it can either inhibit (shut down) neurologically or it can tear.
Gilbert chiropractor Keith Lavender is a certified AMIT practitioner. He says that once inhibited, muscles tend to stay inhibited, which creates imbalances and areas of instability throughout the body. This causes joint and muscle pain. The AMIT process “re-opens” and re-integrates inhibited muscles into the nervous system, removing pain and increasing physical performance.
Here is a patient’s comments after having muscles re-activated with The AMIT Method. She was able to do yoga poses that she had previously not been able to hold.
“I have completed the Advanced Muscle Integration Technique at Foresight Chiropractic Wellness Center with Dr. Lavender. I have more endurance, strength, and energy in my workouts and every day activities. I feel stronger and better now than I have in years. Thanks Foresight Chiropractor for changing my life and being so caring.” Gloria E.
