AMIT Technique

Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT) and/or Muscle Activation Technique

The primary cause of chronic joint pain and muscle pain is due to inhibited muscles affected by overuse or injury. Although the pain of the injury goes away over time, the functional imbalance remains. In turn, these functional imbalances or deactivated muscles eventually lead to chronic pain. Dr. Knight can define your body’s imbalances and correct them using the Muscle Activation Technique. Your healing and rehabilitation can take place rapidly without the need for drugs or surgery, getting you back to the life you want to live.

This innovative technique is essentially “rebooting” the computer system of the body and making sure the brain is clearly connecting and communicating the necessary signals to the muscles. This enables the body to function ideally and avoid further injury and pain.

Dr. Knight was trained by Dr. Craig Buhler, the father of the AMIT Technique.

Adrian-3-IconThroughout my entire athletic career I have been plagued with aches and pains and subtle injuries, and unfortunately the occasional serious injury that resulted in a big setback. I have been working with Dr. Knight for about 3 months, and through the process I have begun to feel better the longer and more consistent I am treated. His practice of muscle activation and spinal adjustment has helped me become aware that those daily aches and pains I was so used to dealing with can be avoided! I was coming off a newly diagnosed grade 3 slap tear and a partial pec tear when I first went in, the assessment process showed us that I had a lot more issues than I had known. Through the time, my shoulder feels stronger and more stable than in the last 2 years and my pec is back to full function. Jeff has brought an awareness even to my training of what specific muscles are lacking and what are are being overworked, the lack of balance I had is what would eventually lead to those serious injuries I would suffer from periodically. I feel fortunate to be able to work with Dr. Knight and am excited about all he has been able to help me with thus far, and where he will help me go from here.

Working with Dr Knight has been crucial for me in my competition season this year. This being my fourth year competing in CrossFit as a professional athlete I’ve started to have some issues with my lower back and shoulder. Dr Knight has been reactivating muscles in my body that were not firing,which was causing imbalance and discomort in my body as I trained. It’s an amazing experience having him do the testing and to notice the lack of strength in those muscles. Within 15-20 minutes of him working on them he will retest and in that moment I will experience them locking into place as they are now firing the way they are suppose to! Thank you Dr Knight for keeping me healthy allowing me to do what I love.
