VISIT STRIATION6 What is Muscle Activation Techniques™? Muscle Activation Techniques™ is a bodywork technique using a systematic approach to identifying and treating muscular imbalances that relate to pain and injury. The focus of the evaluation procedure is based upon the understanding that the body will protect itself when it recognizes instability. Therefore, muscles will tighten up as a protective measure when instability is recognized. Muscle Activation Techniques™ addresses the component of muscle weakness as a cause for limitations in joint range of motion. When muscles are weak and/or have lost proprioceptive input, the joint that supports it becomes unstable. This instability must be identified and addressed. Muscle Activation Techniques™ are designed to identify and correct such positions of instability. When the treatment is performed in this manner, the natural protective mechanisms in the body are diminished and normal joint motion is restored. The end result will also increase joint stability throughout that range of motion.
