MATTM is a biomechanics-based therapy that aims to identify and treat muscular inhibitions that can lead to chronic orthopedic dysfunction, impeded recovery, and discomfort. The treatment involves a systematic checks and balance process that evaluates the integrity of the neuromuscular system.
MAT™ involves a new paradigm shift in how tightness is viewed. Traditionally, tightness or restricted range of motion at a joint is viewed as the primary source of your problem. Thus, most modalities aim at directly decreasing tightness. The fundamental principle of the MATTM thought process is that muscle tightness is secondary to muscle weakness. Muscles tighten as a protective mechanism that is secondary to the instability made manifest by the presence of muscle inhibition. MAT™ focuses on treating the underlying cause of the problem rather than the symptom
