MAT Has A Unique Perspective On Muscle Tightness Which Gives Athletic Trainers With A MAT Certification The Advantage
MAT looks at muscle tightness as being a symptom that relates to underlying weaknesses. Whenever you have stress, trauma, or overuse to the body, the resultant inflammation alters the communication between the nervous system and the muscular system so that the muscles cannot contract efficiently. When muscles can’t contact efficiently, they cannot shorten efficiently and they actually weaken due to lack of neurological input.
With MAT, we focus on the muscle weakness aspect of the muscle dysfunction. Through specific activation techniques that improve the communication between the nervous system and the muscular system, not only do the associated muscles get stronger, but the protective tightening of other muscles goes away.
