I had been exposed to the ATM since 2002 at a trade show and was impressed but wasn't sure it was really necessary for my practice (I think years ago I thought that about x-ray also!!)...When I saw the advertisement again in a Chiropractic magazine several months ago I didn't hesitate... as some new competition and several recent "failed" patients were starring me in the face!
I couldn't be more enthusiastic about it and what it's meant to a myriad of back patients from day one! In all honesty I believe it is as potent a front-line pain relieving modality as anything we Chiropractors offer. One of my staff put it in perspective: "it gives the results Chiropractic adjustments always promised...but couldn't deliver consistently, painlessly and without any trauma!".
It is the most valuable and cost effective device in my rehab suite. It's trite and too oft repeated but you've got to try this for yourself to truly appreciate how consistent and immediate low back pain relief can be given in a majority of patients.
It also is a vital prognostication device...either helping to rectify movement impairment disorders ASAP OR giving direct feedback to the clinician that a simple impairment is not the main problem... That information is difficult to get through other testing/provocation methods.
This is a 5 star addition to your practice...once you start using it you'll ask: "how did I manage before it?!!"
