Muscle Activation Technique

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) is a systematic approach for evaluating and correcting muscular imbalances that contribute to injury. These imbalances also impede recovery and compromise performance. This method of evaluation and strategic stretching offers a way to bring balance back to your muscles.

 The athletic trainer will check your range of motion and note any imbalances or bilateral differences. He or she will then guide you in performing a series of specific stretches to help you achieve full range of motion and decrease muscle tightness.

 This unique process for evaluating and treating an individual’s level of ability to produce efficient muscle contraction can greatly improve physical performance.

 MAT is suitable for all types of athletes, from professional players to casual competitors. If you are experiencing a difference in muscle flexibility, muscular imbalances or joint range of motion bilaterally, MAT may be the treatment you need.

Client Testimonials

Dr. Iselborn and his staff are first class top to bottom. This is a complete Sports Medicine and Rehab facility that has been my port in the storm for my chiropractic needs and sports massages. I can't recommend them enough as someone who is 50 with a kindergartener who needs to be at 100% full mobility 24/7.

I'm so grateful for Sports Recovery Annex. After getting more serious about ultra and trail running, I've had my big goal as 100 miles, but after failing to complete my 50 mile race this year, I thought that dream wasn't for me. Instead of quitting, I looked for help, and found this little gem of an athlete's dream! Working with Amra has renewed my confidence in my body, and my mental game. Now I have a toolbox full of tricks to help me manage and overcome my imbalances. This ain't your momma's physical therapy/athletic training; this is challenging and my weaknesses have been brought to light in a way that motivates me to address them. I have not looked forward to a training block like I am right now in so long. I have a good feeling my body will impress me now that I've given in the right kind of attention. I can't wait to focus on becoming better instead of constantly battling to reach my baseline.

Cheers to SRA, 2024's race calendar, and a renewed hope!

My son runs high school track and field and he was having issues with his hamstring. I was referred to the Sports Recovery Annex and the staff was friendly as well as professional. I would gladly recommend anyone who is having physical problems to the Sports Recovery Annex.
