Dr. Matt had the opportunity during school to treat Veterans at the VA for a six-month rotation. Here he applied everything he learned in school, as well as the fascial skills learned in his research and seminars.
In his down time, Dr. Matt enjoys traveling to new places with his family, as well as staying active in the gym and outdoors. He also remains passionate and continues to learn more about fascia and it’s relation to pain.
Mobility and movement is important to get right as a professional athlete but many sports require different movements that may be blocked by fascial distortions.
This technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.
Not just for professional athletes, myofascial taping is used by our chiropractor Dr. Matt Teigen, DC.
