Do You Struggle With Muscle Tightness and Pain?
Many people experience tight, sore muscles, even those who exercise or play sports regularly. Tight, sore muscles can lead to pain, limited range of motion, and may indicate muscle weaknesses and imbalances.
Fortunately, you can restore balance and strength to your muscles.
Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) is a non-invasive treatment that can help restore the symmetry and strength of your muscles. As a result, you’ll have a wider range of motion, increased muscle strength, and more joint stability.
Who Can MAT Help?
Adults who are experiencing muscle pain, tightness, or joint instability may benefit from this approach. Many people turn to Muscle Activation Technique therapy after having an injury or experiencing pain or tightness secondary to exercising or playing sports.
What Occurs In a Muscle Activation Technique Session?
MAT is different from massage and chiropractic therapy. This step-by-step process involves assessing joint motions to help identify asymmetries in the person’s muscles and then restore the muscle’s functioning.
MAT therapists do this by assessing your range of motion, testing different muscles to look for limitations, and stimulating weak and stiff muscles. During this process, providers can narrow in on the problem area. Then, they can help reduce pain and restore symmetry and balance to the muscles.
