I have been using my ATM on many low back, mid back and neck pain patients. It has been a valuable tool in restoring pain free range of motion in a short amount of time. It has been particularly useful for the weekend warrior athlete that works on Wall Street. These athletes come in complaining of pain during and after sport activities. This includes golfers as well as baseball and tennis payers. For example; a recent patient complained of pain every time he would swing his club.
On examination I found limited lumbar ranges of motion, as well as faulty biomechanics of the lumbar spine. After several treatments with the ATM, coupled with spinal manipulation, and muscle release work, he was pain free and enjoying his golf game again.
The ATM has been a valuable addition in the recovery process for many of my patients. It has also helped patients that probably would have been referred for more invasive treatments such as spinal injections, and in several cases surgery.
I recommend the ATM to many of my patients, and see it as an integral part of my practice.
