In this content and video bundle, you’ll learn the foundational principles related to this paradigm shift. You will gain a better understanding of the body’s communication pathways connecting the nervous system and the muscle system.
Chapter 1: What Causes Muscle Weakness
Before you embark on learning the assessment and treatment techniques outlined in the rest of this book, you need to take a deeper look into the communication path-ways that exist between the nervous system and the muscular system.
Chapter 2: Lower Body Comparative Assessment Of Mobility
Step 1 of the Jumpstart Evaluation Procedure is the Comparative Assessment of Mobility (CAM). The CAM assessment for ROM is the most important tool that you will have.
Chapter 3: Lower Body JPT
The JPT evaluation builds on the information that was gathered through the CAM evaluation. Now that you’ve completed the lower body CAM evaluation, you’ll move on to step two of the five-step process: the evaluation of muscle strength through the JPT.
Chapter 4: Lower Body Jumpstart
The JPT evaluation builds on the information that was gathered through the CAM evaluation. Now that you’ve completed the lower body CAM evaluation, you’ll move on to step two of the five-step process: the evaluation of muscle strength through the JPT.
Chapter 5: Upper Body Comparative Assessment Of Mobility
In this section, we will begin with an in-depth look at shoulder joint function, as the shoulder girdle can be a very complex structure. This overview in shoulder mechanics can help you gain a better understanding of how to progress through the assessment and treatment process of the shoulder.
Chapter 6: Upper Body Jumpstart Positional Tests
As we did in the JPT section for lower body, we will base our JPTs for the upper body off of the CAM assessments, and performing JPT tests in the positions where we found limitations in ROM.
Chapter 7: Upper Body Iso-Angular Contraction Tests
Now that we’ve performed the JPT tests and have identified the positions of weakness that correlate with the limitations in ROM in the upper body, it’s time to perform the PICs in order to activate those positions of weakness.
Chapter 8: Trunk & Spine Comparative Assessment Of Mobility
You have completed the assessment and treatment processes for both the lower and upper body and are ready to move into the final portion of the body that we will be addressing through the Jumpstart into MAT process: the trunk and spine.
Chapter 9: Trunk & Spine Jumpstart Positional Tests
Through the JPT testing, we are looking to draw out inefficiencies in muscle contractions through positional testing to identify weaknesses in the muscles that create motion in the trunk and spine.
Chapter 10: Trunk & Spine Positional Iso-Angular Contractions
Now that you have performed the JPT tests for the trunk and spine muscles, you have identified the positions of weakness that relate to the limitations in ROM that were found in the trunk and spine CAM assessment. Moving forward, we will now implement the PICs to activate positions of weakness.
Participants that have learned our Jumpstart process have consistently reported overwhelmingly positive results. They’re amazed to see that, even with a ground-level understanding of the MAT principles, they can create significant change with their clients.

What causes muscle weakness inside the body ?

Where there is stress, trauma, or overuse of the muscle, and the strength tolerance levels of muscles have been exceeded, the resulting inflammation alters the communication between the nervous system and the muscles. The muscle can no longer recover properly, thus they progressively weaken. Learn how to assess, address, and correct these weakness for your clients.

The role of muscle testing and how MAT does it different

Learn how to use specific assessment techniques that are designed to determine where altered neuromuscular function is occuring in the body. Each of your clients will receive the benefit of being treated specifically towards their own specific muscle weakenesses and compensation patterns.

What is and what causes muscle dysfunction in the body ?

Learn about how muscle dysfunction is caused by the interaction of local and systemic factors, why it happens, and what can be done to fix it.
