Imagine being the one on the field ready to assess and address noticeable muscle tightness and muscle dysfunction on your teams athletes in a matter of moments. 

MAT gives athletic therapists the ability to know exactly how an athlete’s system will be affected by a force (weight training, sprints, repetitive movements over hours of practice, tackling, etc) moving through their passive structures such as joints, ligaments, bones, and tissue. Every athlete has a medical history and regardless of where they are in the game or healing from an injury, you could be able to dictate how they would handle such forces in season and in the off season.

MAT Practitioners are able to help prepare, prevent, and preserve an athlete’s muscular system, regardless of their age and ability, to stay happy and healthy!

MAT: A Tool For Atheltic Therapists

Preventing Injuries

When athletes have muscles that have been weakened due to stress, trauma, or overuse, the resultant inflammation alters the communication between the nervous system and the muscular system. This results in a neurological weakness that cannot always be corrected by traditional and conventional exercise, rehabilitation protocols, or further training. When you have this altered communication between the two systems, training alone will not strengthen the loss in communication. In order to help relieve discomfort and reduce inflammation to allow the body to heal, you must first activate the muscles which in turn improves this necessary communication.
What MAT Gives Athletic Therapists

MAT Has An Unique Perspective On Muscle Tightness Which Gives Athletic Therapists 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 effectively and are weakend 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 the opposing muscles resolves. MAT gives athletic therapists a clear insight into the needs of each individual athlete to ensure they are ready for competition.
