What are the indications of muscle weakness – how do I know if I have a ‘weak’ muscle?
The first and major indication is that something may not feel ‘right’. This can manifest as joint pain, muscle tension or instability of a joint: tight hamstrings, tight lower back, shin splints, aching knees, a hyper-extending joint, progressively losing motion in a limb —these are signs of possible muscle weakness. Remember it is always important to have a medical provider evaluate you prior to seeing a certified MAT Specialist in order to rule out serious structural issues or other pathology. (I.e. torn muscles, joint damage, fractures, etc.)
