The MAT Mastery Trunk and Spine Course gives you the ability to develop a deeper understanding between the relationship of specific muscle functions and joint stability within the core and spinal region of the body.

Course Details

The MAT Mastery Trunk and Spine Course gives you the ability to develop an even deeper understanding of the relationship of specific muscle functions and joint stability within the trunk and spine. Our Mastery courses expand off of our Specialist Course content by introducing the technical skillset of Passive Muscle Testing.

You will learn how to passively evaluate range of motion movements within the core and spinal region and effectively address limitations with longer lasting results.

Within the MAT Mastery Trunk and Spine course, there are 34 passive muscle tests that pinpoint which specific muscles have poor contractile ability – i.e. a muscle’s ability to contract on demand. Alongside these tests are correlating DFAMATs® (muscular palpations on the bony landmarks and insertion points of each muscle in the body) that are used to address and correct a weakened muscle in order to restore stability and mobility through joint motion.

Our goal is for participants to learn our unique systematic format to help their individual clients function with maximum efficiency and give them a better quality of life!
