Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) is a powerful tool to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances, joint instability and limitations in range of motion within the human body. It is a unique, non-invasive technique designed to balance the muscular system of people of all ages.
Here are five things you can expect from MAT training.
1. Increased Strength
One of the most significant benefits of MAT training is increased strength. When your muscles can't communicate with your brain properly, it reduces their efficiency and strength. If only 50% of your muscles are working properly, you can double your strength with MAT training.
2. Improved Flexibility
If your muscles aren't working properly, the inhibited muscles can send the wrong feedback to your brain, limiting your range of motion.
If you've been stretching for years and haven't expanded your range, it may be because your muscles can't communicate properly. MAT training can help you see some improvements at this point.
3. Lower Risk Of Injury
When your muscles do not function properly, the risk of injury is greater. However, MAT training can help you significantly reduce your risk of injury by strengthening your muscles and increasing stability. If your muscles are stronger and more stable, you are less likely to get injured.
4. Less Pain
Pain is usually caused by two things:
- Long term muscle dysfunction
- Repeat bad movement patterns over many years
This is very common if you do a lot of physical activity regularly. These habits, combined with incorrect communication between your muscles and your brain, can lead to more bad problems. But MAT can help improve communication between the brain and the muscles, which can greatly reduce pain.
5. Situations Treated By MAT
Muscle activation techniques are designed to "activate" muscles, strengthen and recover muscles, and give your body strength and power. Some notable situations MAT treats:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Neck stiffness
- Shoulder Pain
- Arm pain
- Leg pain
- Foot pain
These are only a few of the situations that MAT treats, there are many more.
MAT can apply to anyone. Whether you're an elite athlete playing at a professional level or just someone who wants to enjoy a better range of exercise, MAT can help. To date, MAT has been widely used in venues ranging from NFL and NBA professional sports leagues to rehabilitation centers and many other places. Muscle activation technology provides you with stronger muscles, better movement and range of motion.
