Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain...Gone after 7 years by using Muscle Activation Techniques!
I am a nurse practitioner. I have been having back, neck, and shoulder pain consistently for 7 years. I have been to numerous specialist; neurology, ortho, etc. over the years I have done physical therapy, trigger point injections, acupuncture, massage, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers and hired a personal trainer to help with core strength to alleviate back pain. Each modality helped some, but never fully alleviated the pain. I tried MAT after a presentation Kevin and his Colleague gave at our office. After my first MAT session, I was a little sore in muscles that I'm pretty sure had not been used for a while. After 2-3 sessions, I started to regain range of motion in my shoulder and the headaches from my neck pain and sciatica from my back begin to resolve. The amount of anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers that I have to take has reduced to nearly none since starting MAT.
I continue to see Kevin about once a month for regular Muscle Activation Techniques sessions and have returned to many of the things I love. I am such a believer in MAT and the difference it has made for me that I sent my parents in to see Kevin as well.
They see him as needed and have also returned to help out on the farm with activities that had created real problems for them before. Being a nurse practitioner I also come across a number of patients with aches and pains that have not been resolved with traditional modalities and Kevin and Muscle Activation Techniques is the first place I send them!
