Sports and athletic activities have rules, protocols, and expectations to keep athletes safe. However, the coach is expected to solve the problem when something hinders an athlete's performance. Some may even blame the coach for the problem, but the coaches shouldn't be chastised if the athletes follow the rules and protocols yet end up injured.
“Mike Robles is my Muscle Activation therapist. I started with him 5 weeks ago. When I first saw him I was in pain and was walking with my torso and head turning to the left. He’s been a miracle worker for me. No pain now and my body is aligned correctly!! Highly recommend Mike for any muscle issues you have!!!” - Marcy
“I started seeing Mike for manual therapy on my neck and shoulder a couple of months ago and it has helped tremendously! He uses resistance and instructs me to move in a certain way and boom! Relief! It seems so simple I’m just surprised it works!” - Kelly
“Mike provided great care and pain relief to my daughters after they sustained track and cross country injuries. In a few weeks, he was able to get them back, not only running, but completely pain free.”
I was so impressed with Mike’s knowledge and the progress he made with my daughters, I wondered if he could possibly help me with an old biceps tendon injury. The orthopedist told me that I was,
‘Getting old and should resolve to not lift weights and take it easy with exercising.’
So glad I decided to work with Mike. Not only is my shoulder pain free, my entire body is stronger and more efficient during exercise. I am back to lifting weights. In addition, I notice a significant improvement in my overall endurance and strength. Two days ago, I ran 4 miles... effortlessly! I have not been able to run that far in over a decade.
I recommend working with Mike for any muscle or physical impairment!! He is knowledgeable, kind, a good listener and really cares about his patients!! - Susan
“My husband's ability to walk was severely diminished prior to and following post-spinal surgery. The surgery was a success but the nerve damage from his existing long-standing trauma did not bode well for an optimal recovery. Mike has assisted my husband with making significant strides to walk again despite medical assessments that led us to believe his lack of ambulation could not be improved upon. We had given up hope until we found Mike.
Mike thoroughly assessed my husband's baseline abilities and went about designed exercises and stretches to explore his strengths and weaknesses. The improvements to my husband's strength, flexibility and balance have been well worth it. We weren't expecting a total resolution of his symptoms or a return to pre-trauma levels but the strides he has made since working with Mike have been significant and much more than doctors had led us to expect. We are very pleased with Mike and will continue to use Mike's services to see how much my husband can continue to reverse his neurologic damage.” - Sandy & Bruce

“Mike Robles is a WIZARD. I went to see Mike for muscle imbalances and weak stabilization muscles. The initial consult consisted of a physical assessment which provided him the blueprint of execution. Mike worked on each body part and explained the process as he went. Best part he provided me exercises that I was able to perform on my own that stimulated further muscle development. I was able to train hard again and get back to lifting heavy. I am appreciate Mike and everything he has done for me. If you are having muscle issues or would like to elevate your athletic performance check him out. I assure you he is a WIZARD. Thanks Mike!” - Hodges

“I have been going to Mike for the last couple of years for back and neck issues. Before I learned about MAT, I saw surgeons, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. I was told I needed surgery on many occasions and had a chiropractor break my collar bone. After a few visits to Mike, I was painfree. I continue to go for "tuneups" but MAT has always worked well for me. Mike has even called me after my appointment to check on my progress and to make sure the treatment was effective. Mike is an experienced professional and truly cares about his clients” - Rick
