This afternoon my wife was watching the travelers golf tournament, and came upon this segment on MAT. Thought you’d all enjoy it.
‼️Athlete Spotlight ‼️

2 years ago a neurologist and orthopedic specialist said her running days were over! After 20+ marathons, Multiple IRONMAN’s and countless half marathon she was told to hang up the shoes due to an hamstring injury! 🙄
.
She REFUSED to accept this diagnosis and committed to an intense rehab program that included Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) + specific strengthening programming from ECFIT Boulder!
.
‼️RESULTS ‼️
.
Last Spring = Half Marathon - 3 place Medal
Today = Won a 6 hour race!!!! 😳🤭
.
It’s safe to say her running days are FAR from over!!! 🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏻

Beyond thankful to be apart of her story! 🔥

So I have a question regarding MAT. I've been going on a regular basis for the past 2 years, and honestly this has been life changing for me. I've suffered from back pain for 20+years, which is from herniated discs in my L4/L5. The question I have is this, when I have an episode, and am experiencing great discomfort, is there a way to treat it through MAT that isn't so painful? Half of the positions I need to get into through the patterns, are almost impossible for me due to the pain and spasms. There has to be an easier way to treat someone when they are in this stage of trauma.

Muscle Activation Techniques MAT® is effective for EVERYONE from elite athletes to rehabilitation patients, and anyone in between; athletes NFL,NBA,NHL etc

Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) is a specific and unique process for evaluating an individual’s ability to develop efficient muscle contraction(s). MAT’s premise is that human movement and exercise are fundamental to human health and that muscle’s health (demonstrated by it’s ability to contract efficiently) is important for normal movement. Any loss of muscle(s) contraction efficiency may be d

💬 A Message From Greg Roskopf: Chemical, physical, and emotional stress all take their toll on the muscular system. When our individual stress tolerance levels have been exceeded, it shows up as muscle weakness.

Naturally, people get "weaker" as they age and tolerance levels, relative to stress or forces put on the body, continue to decline. And therefore, the majority of people we see as MAT Practitioners are in this "over-trained" state.

You know the drill – poor sleep, poor digestion, increased irritability, constant muscle aches and pains, and overall weakness are all signs of "overtraining" and create extreme stress on the body.

Muscle weakness (otherwise known as muscle inhibition) is the result of the inability of muscles to effectively tolerate the forces that have been placed on them. These weaknesses are what make us more prone to injury.

Forces are placed on the body every day. Remember that we define "forces" as any physical, emotional, or chemical stress. From a neuromuscular standpoint, daily life beats us up and someone needs to be there to put you back together.

Think about it like professional car racing — the racers will drive their cars hard, but afterward, the car is taken back to the mechanic and repaired in order to continue to function optimally. The mechanic tunes it back up and corrects the alignment all so that it can be driven at a high level again.

In reality, we treat race cars better than we treat our bodies. We continually place forces on our bodies that can potentially exceed tolerance levels. This in turn alters neuromuscular function. But then we go right back out and beat ourselves up repeatedly without putting the body back together first.

Negative things happen – i.e. tightness, pain, inability to heal, and injury! So, as our summers get busy with activities, remember to be kind to our bodies.

Get restful sleep, drink lots of water, see your local practitioner for a tune-up, and continue to make a difference in this world!

MAT creates a unique experience that other licensed medical professionals aren’t able to provide due to strict insurance-based protocols. This is beneficial in post op treatment because PTs can work, using their MAT skillset, to develop an indivdualized experience that caters to each client’s recovery and creates a stable environment for the body to heal.

01 Fast Client Outcomes:

100% of our practitioners say that MAT gives them a unique skillset in their individual market based on a 2021 survey measuring the success of our practitioners.

02 Increased Client Referrals:

90% of our practitioners say that their client’s initial complaints or muscular dysfunctions are completely resolved in 1 of 10 MAT sessions.

03 Higher Session Charges:

Given their consistent and positive results, our practitioners report that their ability to earn more for their unique skillset is pronounced.

💬 A Message From Greg Roskopf: Is Exercise Really a "Cure-All"?

Exercise has been classified as the cure-all for every disease out there — e.g. coronary heart disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc.

It has been widely accepted in the medical community that inflammation is the common denominator for every disease, but exercise is also a stress that involves forces being placed on the body. If these forces exceed the tolerance levels of the muscles, inflammatory issues can be compounded.

When the body can’t tolerate the forces placed upon it, negative things happen. The end result is an increase in inflammation, which again, is the primary factor behind disease.

Inflammation, through its normal cycle, has positive effects on the body. The whole reason that we have an inflammatory response is to repair damaged tissue. When muscle tissues are overloaded, the resultant inflammatory signals are sent to the damaged tissue to begin a healing response. This cycle of inflammation requires time.

When we were young, we could typically recover and heal from exercise. In that environment, the muscles actually got stronger and we would achieve the positive health aspects expected from exercise.

The primary goal of resistance training is to overload the muscles to a point where those muscles get damaged, creating a low-grade inflammatory response. Through the normal cycle of inflammation, the muscles will heal and get stronger.

In the right environment, inflammation is not a bad thing — it is when the inflammatory response does not get resolved that problems will arise. Unresolved or chronic inflammation is what causes the health issues that relate to the inflammatory diseases listed earlier.

When muscles get overloaded through daily activity, the end result is an inflammatory response. One of the associated signs of inflammation is muscle weakness, therefore I encourage each of you to continue your health journey in seeing an MAT Practitioner who can help keep your muscular system's integrity optimal for an increased quality of life!

Our muscles tighten up to protect—like walking on ice. The body will present pain if the tightness is not addressed. MAT is a systematic, rules-based approach to treat muscle dysfunction.

If you've had clients who've struggled with nagging injuries, reoccurring tightness, and unresolved pain then you'll want to learn Muscle Activation techniques to help address their muscle dysfunctions.

📕 What is Neurological Muscle Dysfunction And How Does MAT Address It?

MAT recognizes that inflammation can create neurological weakness stress, trauma, overuse and the resultant inflammation can alter the communication between the nervous system and the muscle system.

This altered communication is what creates neurological weaknesses. In these situations, muscles lose their ability to contract efficiently, where they can no longer contract on demand, in order to stabilize joints and protect the body from injury. From an MAT perspective we would consider these muscles to be “inhibited”.

The goal of MAT is to “activate” the inhibited muscles through muscle specific isometric contractions or manual stimulation at the origin and insertion of the associated muscle(s).

Once the inhibited muscles are activated, they are able to contract more efficiently, enabling the muscles to withstand greater amounts of external force which allows the muscles to protect the body from pain or injury.

From a MAT perspective, when we see these neurological weaknesses, MAT looks at it as a communication issue rather than a strength issue. The goal of the MAT assessment is to identify positions where a muscle cannot contract on demand and/or sustain a contraction for a specific amount of time.

Therefore, the muscle testing involved in the MAT assessment process are not designed to evaluate the strength of the muscle. The MAT muscle tests are unique in that they are designed to determine whether muscles can contract on demand and sustain the contraction.
