Grab a water bottle. Twist open the top using your hands. Now take away one finger and perform the same task, and repeat it again taking away 2 fingers. Keep repeating this drill until you can only use your palms. You can see how a simple task becomes infinitely harder as your function is increasingly compromised. Your body works the same way! With less muscles participating effectively participating, your day to day tasks become more difficult. MAT helps you restore your ability to utilize all your muscles to their best capabilities.
