Why choose Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT) over other types of therapy?
Myoskeletal Alignment is a term developed and coined by Erik Dalton, PhD, in the early 80s after seeing a need for a more integrative perspective on pain science as it applies to the human body. The MAT program was developed as a tool to help relieve our nation’s neck/ back pain epidemic. By incorporating muscle-balancing techniques with joint-mobilization maneuvers, manual therapists learn to quickly identify and correct dysfunctional neurologically driven strain patterns before they become pain patterns.
Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue. People with back pain have seen a significant improvement after receiving MAT. MAT can help with head pain, neck cricks, repetitive sporting injuries, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel, scoliosis, lumbago, sciatica, and visceral problems, among other body issues. By receiving MAT you can increase your flexibility, improve your posture, and decrease pain throughout your body. The reason why MAT works better than other forms of therapy is because it breaks the pain cycles and spasms by combining muscle balancing routines with unique joint-capsule maneuver.
I am so grateful that I found Mark! I moved her from San Francisco, and I didn't think I would find someone who could help me with my sports injuries.
Hi Mark, your treatment today was amazing!! I feel a whole new level of overall physical awareness and function in my body and right shoulder.
