What is Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT)?
Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) is a revolutionary advancement in accelerating healing and increasing human performance naturally. Certified AMIT doctors are trained to isolate specific muscles and muscle divisions and test for proper function. Following an initial muscle testing examination, the AMIT doctor will have a list of the muscles that are functioning properly and the muscles that are not. Muscles that are not functioning properly are termed inhibited. Once inhibited muscles are identified, Advanced Muscle Integration Technique is used to restore the specific muscle or muscle division back to proper function within the neuro-muscular system, and the muscle will ‘hold’ or stay active. (Inhibited muscles do not respond to or become activated from exercise, massage, electric muscle stimulation, or other therapies.)
How do muscles become inhibited?
The brain inhibits muscles when it is overloaded. The position and pressure sensors (proprioceptors) within muscle tissues become damaged, causing the muscle to collapse when loaded. We call
this process enthesis generated neuro-proprioceptive inhibition (EGNPI). This response is protective in nature and occurs to reduce the amount of damage to the overloaded tissue. The body automatically compensates for the loss of use of an inhibited muscle, causing increased stress to supporting tissues. If addressed in the acute stages, immediately after an injury and before compensatory neuromuscular patterns set in, improvement is quick and dramatic. However, often the compensatory process occurs gradually over years of activity and the cycle continues, increasing the risk of permanent joint and tissue damage.
What is the compensatory process?
When a muscle becomes inhibited the brain adapts by recruiting local muscles to preform the function of the inhibited muscle. If the adaptation is successful, the symptoms may disappear temporarily until the adaptive tissues become over stressed and inhibited. The imbalance remains until such time as the underlying problem is identified and corrected with AMIT these underlying conditions are commonly diagnosed as, varying tendonitis, bursitis, fasciitis, or capsulitis. By identifying muscular imbalances and correcting them using AMIT, healing and rehabilitation can take place rapidly without the need for drugs or surgery.
How is AMIT different from other muscle work?
In the AMIT model of correction, tight muscles are not the focus of treatment as they are in most therapies. Certified AMIT doctors are trained to recognize that a tight muscle may indicate an appropriate nervous system adaptation to inhibited muscle function somewhere else in the body. Nervous system adaptation leads to less efficient body function. When the body creates a successful adaptation into other tissues or systems, this may actually hide symptoms giving one a false sense that healing is complete and full function has been restored. We have many individuals that are functioning well that are surprised they can function better.
What are the benefits of AMIT?
By locating and correcting muscle imbalances using Advanced Muscle Integration Technique, healing and recovery is rapid without the need of drugs or surgery for acute and chronic conditions. Future injuries can be predicted and prevented by identifying and correcting the inhibited muscles now. With rapid corrections, pain can be reduced or eliminated and function improved, leading to overall improvement in performance. Sports careers can be extended, enabling joints and muscles to move optimally and pain-free. Post-surgical sites that may be inhibited can be corrected allowing for optimal rehabilitation.
