Muscle Activation Techniques

Muscle Activation Techniques or MAT is a highly effective way to help you re-engage muscle that might not be working as well as they should be. Over time, stress, injury and inflammation can caused diminished use of certain muscles. The body will react to avoid pain. When a muscle is injured, this puts the body into an unbalanced state and after the muscle heals, the person may have gotten used to how the body adapted so instead of returning to normal, the muscle become dormant. 

With MAT, we go through a process of testing, correcting and returning your muscles to their original function and efficiency.



Who is a Candidate for MAT?

If you have experienced pain, stress, trauma, stiffness, sports injuries, any loss in range of motion, or the ability to participate in sports or activities you once enjoyed, you are a candidate for MAT! From the 90-year-old woman who simply wants to maintain her basic activity level and independence, to the weekend warrior who defies all laws of “getting old,” to the budding athlete who needs every advantage to remain competitive and injury-free, MAT can improve your life!

Even a minor loss in range-of-motion indicates muscle weakness, which can be caused by a multitude of factors such as:

● Sitting for prolonged periods of time

● Overuse/injury

● Trauma (car accident/sports injury/health condition)

● Surgery

● Arthritis or fibromyalgia

In these instances, fatigued muscles may not have the time to recover after sustaining a particular movement or position for extended periods of time. The nervous system, which controls the brain, nerves, and indirectly, muscle function, sends messages to the body when a muscle is stressed, thus altering its ability to contract effectively. This reduces range of motion, leading to muscle weakness.

Often individuals experiencing muscle weakness or loss of movement might be sent to physical therapy. From there, however, many are told to exercise or “stay active,”
