Manual Therapy is one of the fastest growing and most effective strategies for pain, injury and recovery. Touch therapies include: osteopathic, manual treatment, neuro-muscular, structural integration, muscle activation, positional release, and active stretching. These have proven to work on relieving chronic and acute pain in patients. People with back pain, neck pain and other neurogenic and neuro-muscular issues have seen a significant improvement after receiving Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT).
As the region’s premier center for helping clients with mobility, injury, preventive health and training, the Temple Human Performance offers a unique combination of assessment, treatment, training and repeat evaluation to keep our clients functioning and moving. Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy can help with head pain, radiating neck pain, neck stiffness, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel, scoliosis, lumbago, sciatica, and visceral problems, among other body issues. By receiving MAT, you can increase your flexibility, improve your posture, and decrease pain throughout your body.
The reason why MAT works better than other forms of therapy is because it breaks the pain cycles and spasms by combining muscle balancing routines with unique joint-capsule maneuvers. Our team of MAT therapists, led by renowned Senior Myoskeletal Therapist Paul Kelly, moves clients through a series of interventions that make the transition from illness to wellness. We help improve the quality of life for many types of clients including active adults, fitness enthusiasts (Tri-Athletes, Runners, Cyclists, Cross-Trainers), high-school athletes, pro-athletes, and those impacted by injury (acute or chronic).

Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is a combination of methodical deep-tissue massage and joint flexibility that together improve muscular balance and alignment for optimal body performance. MAT specifically focuses on the muscles of the spine to eliminate pain and improve mobility in the hips, lumbar (low back), thoracic (mid-back), and cervical (neck) areas.
