Maximizing strength to eliminate compensation.
Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT™) developed by Greg Roskopf, is a systematic approach to restoring muscular balance. By helping the body restore its symmetry so muscles can stop compensating for one another, ease of movement is returned and pain goes away. By restoring balance to the body’s biomechanics, it will maximize your strength and eliminate compensation patterns.
MUSCLE ACTIVATION TECHNIQUES (MAT™) is a systematic approach that targets pain at its source through a revolutionary set of checks and balances that result in increased stability and mobility. It resets the neuromuscular imbalances the body exhibits. MAT™was developed by Greg Roskopf, a biomechanics expert, who has worked as a consultant for Denver Broncos, the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz.
HOW DO MUSCLE ACTIVATION TECHNIQUES WORK?
MAT™ does not treat pain but rather uses it as an indicator that something is wrong. From a muscular point of view, body pain results from stronger muscles being “tight” because they are over worked to compensate for weaker muscles thereby causing misalignment. By “reactivating” weak muscles, body symmetry is restored. The result is pain reduction and improved performance levels, including: greater range of motion, increased joint stability, reduced muscle fatigue and faster muscle recovery.
HOW IS IT DONE?
A certified specialist looks for asymmetries in the body through a range of motion exam. The weak muscles are targeted through manual palpations and positional isometric contraction.
EVERYONE CAN BENEFIT:
Individuals can expect reduced pain, improved range of motion and the ability to return to living life as opposed to sitting on the side lines.
Our goal is to help you get back to your healthy, active lifestyle while remaining pain free.
