“MAT” Muscle Activation Technique, was developed by Greg Roskopf and is recognized in the athletic world. The Roskopf Principles focus on muscle contractile efficiency relative to limitations. MAT™ can be a valuable tool for a wide demographic of individuals. If you suffer from any type of tightness or discomfort; are a regular (or not-so-regular) exerciser or competitive athlete; have trouble moving or keeping your balance due to aging or injury; have ever had any type of traumatic experience (such as a car accident or surgery) or injury (no matter how small); or want to be able to do what you currently enjoy doing for years to come, MAT™ may be of benefit to you!
Previously you would have to drive to Dallas or OKC for this treatment, but now is available at AthletePlus.
My experience here was amazing! I had great service and a speedy recovery thanks to AthletePlus!
Excellent, Chris predicted 3 months of work and it was just at 3 months. I have great range of motion now in my shoulder. Chris and Rodney pushed me and the work paid off. Lindsi is always cheerful, helpful and sweet. x
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
Overall a very positive experience. The staff has been very professional and have provided me with not just therapy, but a method to continue my work outside the center. All the exercises provided have been such that they can be integrated into my normal workout routine. This should allow me to work on any problems on my own in the future. I have been very pleased with the progress I made and with the program.
I’ve loved my experience here. The staff was MOST EXCELLENT. Buena and Rodney were mostly my helpers. Both were attentive, respectful, and professional. You have a staff that you should certainly be proud of. Thank you for helping me. I appreciate everything you’ve done to help get me back to my Life.
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
I was a good experience at learning new abilities. It made me a lot stronger and I fell like it made a better athlete. In basketball a lot. I thought I was a lot of help for me.
Excellent therapist with great skills and very knowledgeable in the field. I would highly recommend him for therapy to patients of any age. I am now playing golf again without back pain.
It was a good experience and it really help me during the exercises. I was treated and helpful and I will come back.
Very professional, kind people who answered each question I had throughout the program. The program was challenging, yet possible for someone with my injuries to complete. The E-Stim sessions seemed to help, also. I completed the exercises I was directed to do at home each day to strengthen my back.
