Are Your Muscles Broken? Part 2

In my last article, I shared my story about how I came across MAT (Muscle Activation Technique), a revolutionary approach to assess a client’s muscular system to determine what muscles are not working correctly and fix the problem. I have completed my course and am officially certified as an MAT lower body specialist! I am now able to help correct many of the painful issues many individuals experience: IT band syndrome, runner’s knee, repetitive ankle sprains, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, patella femoral syndrome, knee issues, hip issues, bursitis, etc. How is this possible? Let me explain:  

I will compare the muscular system to a work committee. If there is a committee of 10 people in charge of a project and 3 of the committee members become hurt and have to step away, what happens? The other 7 people probably pitch in and do the work of the three, right? They are probably happy to fill in for a time, but if left in this situation, the 7 healthy active individuals probably get a little cranky. They might complain, they might not be as efficient because of the heightened work load, or they might get sick themselves and have to drop out. This leaves the project delayed or never completed. However, if the other three committee members become healthy and come back to the committee to participate, all is restored. Everyone is able to do the job they are trained to perform and the project can be completed efficiently and correctly. The muscular system is the same way. Each muscle is designed for a specific purpose. When inflammation, injury, over-use, dehydration, or poor nutrition is present, muscles shut down and are no longer capable of performing their specific purpose. This causes other muscles to “pitch in” and do more than they are designed to do. These overworked muscles become tight, painful, weak, and overused which eventually leads to injury. With MAT, I can assess which muscles are not working correctly and “wake them up”. This is done from a therapy table—no need for heavy workout equipment and months of physical therapy exercises. The technique is relatively painless, easy for the patient and highly affective!

I am humbled to have discovered this technique and am thrilled to offer this treatment to the St. Cloud area. How much does it cost? Currently, I am offering a special! For the month of March, the cost is only $50 per treatment! How long is a treatment? It only takes an hour! How many treatments do I need? One treatment . . . . multiple treatments . . . it depends upon the severity of your pain, the injuries you have sustained, age, and your overall health. Who needs MAT? Everyone! MAT can be used to correct muscle function (whether or not pain exists) which improves overall health and/or athletic performance.
