What is Muscle Activation?
Muscle Activation Technique is the primary technique used in our clinics. It identifies muscles that have "shut down" and then re-engages them. Learn more about MAT below and book your first appointment today!
In just a 15 minute period, one of our skilled doctors pushes on a series of anatomically significant points on the body to reset the neurological connection between the brain and the dysfunctional muscle. The muscle will show significant increases in reactivity and strength almost immediately after.
The Muscle Activation Therapy is rooted in both Eastern medicine practices (acupuncture) as well as Western medical arts including osteopathy and chiropractic.
How this improves your life
Chiropractic care is an excellent form of treatment, but is incomplete. Its focus is to reset joints into optimal position for improved motion and function, and increase mobility. The problem, however, is that chiropractic adjustments cannot keep the adjusted joints in their fixed position. That's where Muscle Activation comes in! Muscle Activation increases stabilization by ensuring one's muscles hold the joints in the correct position through movement.
Muscle Activation has been shown to increase strength, endurance, and musculature speed while decreasing pain and inefficient bio-mechanical movements. This translates to benefits such as improved athletic performance, sleep, and the ability to work for longer periods of time. Experience the benefits yourself by booking your first appointment today!
