Muscle Activation Techniques

With Mark Trombold

What is Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT)?

Muscle Activation Techniques is a biomechanically based neuromuscular assessment and treatment process aimed at addressing the root cause of dysfunction rather that just treating the symptoms or end-stage diagnosis. MAT addresses neurological muscle inhibition that leads to muscle imbalances, joint instabilities, and limitations in range of motion, all of which can lead to pain and dysfunction. Stress, overuse, misuse and disuse can affect the ability of the muscles to contract effectively, leading to injury, inflammation and overload. It specifically identifies and treats the muscle inhibition to restore optimal, pain-free function most often with immediate results.

MAT was developed by Greg Roskopf, who has worked as a Biomechanics Consultant for the Denver Broncos, Denver Nuggets, and the Utah Jazz. For more information visit

MAT With Mark Trombold


I suffered a shoulder injury in 2009 from a wake boarding accident. Mark and Anne-Marie did some really good work and got me back in action faster than I ever thought imaginable! They used some really impressive technique called Muscle Activation Techniques. I loved it. SO much so that when I broke my neck about 5 months ago, I saw them again! I have made a full recovery and am excited I know of this very dependable clinic for rehab. Thanks!

Their use of Muscle Activation Technique completely changed my quality of life for the better. I had done many different types of physical therapy every year for over a decade, following a slew of repair surgeries that added as many problems as they fixed. This was by far the most effective of any of the other types. When any family member needs PT, I won’t take/send them anywhere else!

Mark Trombold is awesome! I started working with Mark (co-owner with his wife Anne-Marie) at Proformance for a fully ruptured achilles. He listens and tailors his therapy to suit what your mind wants with what your body is able to actually do. Mark puts time and work into your rehab and shows you exercises and stretches you need to do to help in your own recovery. He is also one of the few physical therapists who knows MAT (Muscle Activation Technique or Therapy).

Over the years, I’ve had a dislocated thumb and an injury to my elbow (muscle tears). I’ve always gone back to Proformance for rehab because I trust Mark. He’s that good.
