AMIT - Advanced Muscle Integration Technique

Advanced Muscle Integration Technique is a system treatment of common joint and muscle conditions experienced by active people. AMIT is a revolutionary advancement in sports medicine.

We can predict injuries by defining instabilities in the body, which lead to injury. The therapies used allow for rapid corrections of instabilities resulting in improved function, removal of pain, and performance taken to a new level.

We have discovered the primary cause of pain and inflammation in joints are muscles reduced in function due to injuries sustained during one's lifetime. Although the pain of the injury goes away, the functional imbalance remains. These functional imbalances eventually lead to chronic pain. By defining these imbalances and correcting them using the AMIT therapies, healing and rehabilitation can take place rapidly without the need for unnecessary drugs or surgeries.


Nasal Specific Cranial Work

Nasal Specific Technique (NST) is based on the work of William G Sutherland, D.O (1873-1954). Dr. Sutherland began to investigate the body’s mechanical function and identify the body’s living anatomy (i.e flow of cranial fluid, texture of tissues, compression of bones, ect.). He did more to advance the concepts of “Self Healing” than any other osteopath of his generation.

Dr. Sutherland was labeled a “heretic” and a “quack” for establishing the common sense principle that the body’s central nervous system was in “constant rhythmic motion”. This motion is essential factor in human health and sustaining life.

Dr. Sutherland is best known for viewing the human body as a sophisticated “machine” believing that dysfunction or impairment in one area was bound to compromise the entire structure.

A small balloon is inserted into the nasal passages, and is quickly inflated and deflated. This is performed four times on each side of the nasal passages. By pressurizing the inside of the cranium, the small bones of the skull are expanded. This expansion unlocks the sutures and chambers within the skull to normal function. The NST is by no means a cure-all. For patients who have the below-mentioned conditions, the procedure can be miraculous.

  • sinus congestion
  • chronic sinus infections
  • deviated septum’s
  • headaches/migraines
  • cognitive problems associated with concussions
  • learning and informational processing problems
  • snoring problems and sleep apnea
  • need for sinus surgery

When these chambers are congested and the sutures are locked, the results can be the conditions mentioned above. Sinus surgery can be avoided by simply expanding the tissues within the nasal passages. Babies who have difficulty nursing because congestion and difficultly breathing through their noses have immediate relief as do their sleep-deprived mothers.

Down’s syndrome babies were helped dramatically in their development by being treated with NST techniques on a regular basis throughout childhood. The parents often asked if NST could help them with their sinus problems or headaches. Amazingly, they experienced complete recovery from these chronic conditions.

Dr. Craig Buhler had the experience of spending many hours observing Dr. Stober’s clinic during his internship program. After hearing story after story of the amazing miracles being created in patients lives, it became clear NST was an incredible technique to incorporate with AMIT.

Dr. Sutherland identified this "living anatomy" as follows:

  • Motion at the cranial sutures, the joints linking the 26 bones of the skull
  • "Expansion and contraction" of the hemispheres of the brain
  • Motion of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord
  • A fluid wave within the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord
  • Involuntary, subtle motion of the sacrum and tailbone.

Dr. Buhler first met Dr. Stober in 1974 as a chiropractic student at Western States Chiropractic College. He taught the “ Ears, Eyes, Nose and Throat” part of the curriculum since Dr Stober was reputed to be the best in his field. He practiced his art, philosophy and science primarily on newborns. These newborns had difficult births, were injured at birth, genetically damaged, or whose position in the womb predisposed their head to cranial faults and dysfunction.

OTZ Frozen Shoulder Technique

The OTZ technique is revolutionizing the treatment of shoulder conditions by correcting them in a matter of days, mainly Frozen Shoulder Syndrome (FSS). This is a dramatic improvement compared to the medical treatment that requires months to years.

What is FSS?

Frozen Shoulder Syndrome (FSS), aka adhesive capsulitis is a very painful and debilitating condition and includes intense pain in the involved shoulder with a significant loss of both range of motion and the ability to use the affected shoulder and arm. Visit www.frozenshoulddoctor.com to learn more.

In the orthopedic field, it is commonly thought pain and restricted motion in the shoulder are the result of adhesions in the capsule of the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint. This made no sense to Dr. Murphy for two reasons. First, principle adhesions worsen over time and normally do not spontaneously resolve themselves. The medical literature and clinical histories describes FSS as a condition that can spontaneously resolve itself after an average period of thirty (30) months.

Second, Dr. Murphy saw passive (zero patient involvement) abduction of the involved shoulder that ends in a bony limitation. The limited range of motion in each case that he tested ended in a bony stopping point. This is how past patients described the limitation as well. Patients often expressed their feelings of fear that their arm would fracture if it were forced up. Adhesions alone typically do not exhibit these characteristics.

In 2006, Francis Murphy, DC in Dallas, Texas discovered the cause of Frozen Shoulder Syndrome (FSS) while working on a patient suffering with FSS for two months. Pam Hatcher’s health care history pertaining to her frozen shoulder included medical diagnosis and treatment, physical therapy and home exercises.

Her symptoms ranged from insidious onset, night pain, painful restrictions on passive elevation, and external rotation. Suffering from neck and back pain, her symptoms worsened. At that point she met with a Dallas surgeon and proceeded towards shoulder surgery.

Dr. Murphy met with Pam performing OTZ Tension Adjustment procedure with her injured shoulder. Within 8 minutes, Pam was able raise her arm in abduction above her head. Amazingly Pam’s arm went up all the way. She was able to demonstrate 180 degrees of abduction, and her pain was immediately reduced by 80%.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy was developed by a German physician Samuel Hahnemenn in 1796 and is based on a principle known as the law of similars, “Let like be cured by like.”

Homeopathic remedies are prepared by taking a single drop of the element being used and adding it to 99 drops of alcohol in a bottle, succusing the bottle 100 times to potentize (energize) the solution. This solution is classified as a 1X dilution.

Then take a drop of this solution and add it to 99 drops of alcohol and success this solution 100 times making a 2X dilution. The homeopathic system indicates the more dilute the substances become the more energetically potent and powerful effect it has on the patient’s condition.

Most remedies are in the 50X and 100X dilution range. If the patients symptoms worsen after taking the low dilution remedy, an effect known as a “proving” has occurred and indicates the patient has been given the proper remedy.

When the patient is given a higher potency remedy 200X or higher, the body is stimulated to mobilize its own healing energies to heal the condition. In essence, jump starting the system. This effect is seen in modern vaccinations when the weakened organism is injected into the patient to stimulate the immune system to develop antibodies to fight off the organism. The Science of Homeopathy by George Vithoulkas.

The AMIT system holds that healing takes place on many levels, including the mental and energetic levels. Homeopathy has its effect on both of these levels, and has been proven clinically. Even instances where patients experience a placebo effect, we consider this one of the single most powerful therapeutic tool we have; there are no side effects to placebo and it is a highly cost effective approach.

In Europe, homeopathy is more commonly used than pharmaceuticals, due to the lack of side effects and low production costs. In western medical systems, Homeopathy is often considered quackery or placebo.

A couple of centuries ago, before science began to single-mindedly focus its attention on the purely physical aspect of Nature, homeopathy and allopathy walked hand in hand to serve the health needs of mankind. As physical sciences became more successful, the tolerance for ideas that could not be tested by the same criteria diminished. As physical science became more and more quantitative and predictably powerful, homeopathy began to fall out of favor with practicing physicians. Only a small enclave of physicians faithfully persisted in the practice of homeopathy into this century.

One might say this was the emphasis on disease rather than on health that spilt allopathic and homeopathic practice. The physical body reveals the obvious materialization of disease and relationship to the more subtle aspects of man is not so easily discriminated. It can be classified as an objective medicine because it deals with Nature on a purely four-dimensional, space-time level.

Homeopathic medicine, on the other hand, deals indirectly with the chemistry and structure of the physical body, examining substances and energies within the subtle level. This must be classified as subjective medicine at this time, in part because it deals with energy that can by strongly perturbed by the mental and emotional activity of individuals. No diagnostic equipment to support the homeopathic physician has been developed at this time.

The present transition toward an emphasis upon health and wholeness rather than upon disease has enhanced the growing awareness, perspective, and importance of a hierarchy of subtle energies and influences that determine human well-being.

Humankind comprises multidimensional beings living in a multidimensional universe. A disturbance of the energy chain at any level causes ripples to flow between positive space/time energies, negative space/time energies, mind, spirit, and divine. Complete homeostasis cannot exist at the physical level and disease may eventually materialize in one form or another.


Network Spinal Analysis

Network Spinal Analysis By Donald Epstein, D.C.

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is an evidence based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touches to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies. Two unique waves develop with this work.

The waves are associated with spontaneous release of spinal and life tensions. Existing tension is used as fuel for spinal re-organization and enhancing wellness. Practitioners combine their clinical assessments of spinal refinements with patient’s self-assessments of wellness and life changes.

Greater self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationship between the body, mind, emotion, and expression of the human spirit are realized through this popular healing work. NSA is exclusively practiced by Chiropractic physicians who use it for identification and self- regulation of vertebral subluxation patterns, spinal tension of autonomic defense postures, and accompanying osseous structural changes.


Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT), also referred pulsed magnetic therapy (PEMF), an orthopedic technique used to treat depression, non-union fractures, failed fusions, non-union fractures and other conditions.

Bone healing is dramatically improved by using PEMF for injured tissue. This is accomplished by pulsing magnetic fields through tissue and stimulating cellular repair to aid in bone repair.

Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects

  • Rapid Cell Growth: encourages cellular reproduction and growth to be accelerated.
  • Faster Wound Healing: stimulates fibroblast development and enhances collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.
  • Increased Metabolic Activity: brings higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells, creating greater production of basic food source for cells, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action: reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.
  • Increased Vascular Activity: induces temporary vasodilatation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function: speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to eliminate numbness.

Prolozone Information

What is Prolozone?

Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament, tendon, and joint reconstruction used to treat many types of chronic pain. The root of the word Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “prolix” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. The treatment is regenerative, and uses a combination of sugar solution and ozone injections to help rebuild ligament, tendon, and cartilage in areas where they have become weak.

Injured Ligaments Cause Pain

Ligaments hold bones, joints, and intervertebral disks together. Ligaments can become weak or injured from acute injury or excessive use. After surgery, ligaments often do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. When this happens, it puts strain on the areas that the ligaments are supposed to support, resulting in pain and arthritis in the bones, discs, and affected joints. Also, ligaments themselves have nerve endings which can signal pain when the ligament is damaged.

How Does it Work?

Our bodies often get locked in cycles of chronic inflammation following an injury. Prolozone helps break the cycle of chronic inflammation so the body knows to heal the affected area. The ozone specifically increases blood supply to the area and flow of healing nutrients. Prolozone also stimulates the deposition of collagen and cartilage by fibroblasts and chondroblasts. This new tissue rebuilds and tightens injured areas, thereby providing stability and reducing pain.

What Conditions are Treated?

The applications for Prolozone are very broad. It is used to treat arthritis in most joints of the body, such as shoulders, elbows, wrists/hands, back, hips, knees, and ankles/feet. In addition to treating the joints themselves, Prolozone can effectively stabilize ligaments and tendons around joints, so it is effective for back pain, fasciitis, and virtually any sports injury. It also effectively accelerates recovery after surgery.

What Can I Expect?

The response varies between individuals, and depends upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. The best results occur with a series of four injections, with four weeks to recover between each injection. Prolozone gets results even in chronic pain conditions that have been present for years, and many people will experience permanent resolution of their symptoms.

In Short…

Prolozone is a safe, effective, and natural treatment for a variety of problems. We look forward to helping you get rid of your pain.
