What is MAT?

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT), developed by Greg Roskopf, is a targeted approach to identify and correct muscle imbalances that contribute to pain and restricted mobility. MAT focuses on activating weak muscles, improving joint stability and increasing range of motion addressing the root cause of discomfort.

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT)

Pain serves as our body’s alarm system, indicating when something needs attention. Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) involves a series of precise muscle tests designed to pinpoint the specific muscles contributing to your discomfort. These tests reveal areas where muscles are deemed "weak" or inhibited. Such weaknesses often lead to imbalances that result in pain or injury. MAT is the tool we employ to understand how the muscular system is influencing your discomfort. Additionally, it helps us identify which muscles require attention to restore mobility and balance in your body.

Restoring Balance and Strength:

MAT centers on rebalancing and strengthening your body's muscles. When muscles are under stress, overused, or have experienced trauma, they can become "shut down" or inhibited. This prompts your body to tighten, a protective response to this newfound weakness or instability. MAT prioritizes addressing the weakness rather than the tightness. Through MAT, we strategically activate your muscles to facilitate mobility and strength restoration.
