Just wanted to let you know some of the positive outcomes I've noticed since using the ATM2-Pro-ST.
I have found the ATM2 to be extremely effective for treating people with pelvic issues. I do this by using the ATM-2 to stretch patient's quadriceps, hamstrings, and illiopsoas muscles. I've had patients whose sacroiliac joints would not stabilize until I used the ATM-2 to stretch these muscles.
Also, I have found the ATM2 to be extremely effective at decompressing the thoracic and lumbar spine. One thing I love about my model is that I have the ability to apply more decompressive force to one side over the other. This is great and has accelerated patient recovery time!

I just wanted to write and thank you for the ATM2. My own personal experience. I have been having a fairly consistent right hip/SI pain for the past six months. I will go and get adjusted and it helps for approximately 4-6 hours but it returns and some days when I am walking I begin to limp some but make it back home.
Last Thursday 7-18-13 I decided I would come to the office early and put myself on the ATM2 and did 10 flexion ROM exercises and was very amazed by about the fourth or fifth exercise my right hip pain was gone and when I completed the ten was the best my hip and low back has felt in months. It has been one week today and I have not done anymore personally on the ATM2 and my right hip pain is at least 75-80% better. I am coming in early to the office tomorrow and so I will treat myself again. Thank you, Dr. Timothy Swihart. You may use this testimonial with anyone in helping them to purchase a wonderful additional weapon to put in their arsenal for helping patients to end the pain cycle.

I just returned from the hands-on course on Monday. I had a PT friend that had an acute back injury reaching into car that limited her flexion with a significant increase in low back pain. Within 10 minutes of treatment on the ATM2-Pro-ST, we had restored her movement and reduced her pain to a "1." Her statement "I can't believe it. I was coming for a hot pack." Unbelievable results with the pictures to prove it!
The ability to drastically change movement almost instantaneously is incredible. I am a huge proponent of manual therapy but this device allowed me to completely stabilize in the upright functional position allowing complete pain-free movement. What was even more surprising and welcoming was the ability for the pt to maintain the almost pain-free movement after being removed from the device.
I haven't experienced anything like it. Looking forward much more success with this concept and utilization of the device.
