Welcome to Tucson MAT

125_Greg-RoskopfWebsmallHave you ever had a muscle strain and the ensuing nagging pain that follows? A pain that lingers on and on and you have tried a vast myriad of therapies and still get no relief? Everything from physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage therapies, even surgery and still feel the pain? Have you sat there and said to yourself “I have tried everything and why am I still hurting?” Well it might be time to seek an alternative method to alleviate that pain.

A method that actually works!

Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT)

Nathaniel Thise is Tucson’s only certified MAT therapist and can help you win the battle over pain. MAT looks at the root cause of pain, not just the symptoms. Blunt trauma, over exertion, chronic dehydration, poor nutrition and stress can literally turn your muscles off and they become inhibited, semi-dormant if you will. We feel this when moving the effected area in any range of motion. Whether its exercise or every day tasks, something about the movement isn’t right.  What feels off is that one or more muscles are not doing there job which is to stabilize the joint(s) it crosses. Consequently another muscle picks up the slack and quickly over compensates trying to do the work of one or more muscles. MAT addresses the muscles that have “turned off” and through a hands on and therapeutically advanced technique using muscle manipulation as a tool, it can re-fire those inhibited muscles. As a result it will restore the proper mechanics to effected joints and relieve the pain associated with the imbalance.
