What to Expect from your MAT Session
Observing active range of motion highlights a focal area where muscles have decreased in the contractibility, palpations are applied to restore muscle’s connection with the brain, much like connecting the dots of where the muscle attaches to engage it more fully. The MAT® Certified Specialist is trained and certified to perform several force application techniques that can restore function and strengthen weak muscles.
Observe Active Range of Motion (AROM)
This process determines the most asymmetrical/ limited motion and establishes our treatment route.
Palpation at the attachment sites of the weak muscle
This manual touch re-syncs communication between the brain and the muscles. It reminds the brain where the muscle attaches and what role the muscle is supposed to play in healthy movement.
Assess which muscles are not functioning correctly
Each muscle that has a dominant or stabilizing role in the determined limited range is tested to verify if it can contract and hold contraction (proper function).
Retest the muscle
This step determines whether proper communication between the brain and the muscle as been reestablished. If the muscle contracts when it is needed, it has been effectively stimulated and activated.
Each MAT treatment is designed to support and stabilize joints by engaging all muscles to function correctly, allowing your body to regain healthy motion with stability, mobility and strength.
