Thanks for your valuable time and help with some of my questions about the ATM2. I have been using two units now for over 6 weeks and just finished the 6 hour course. I had to purchase a second unit due to how many patients I have using the ATM2.
I am currently using the ATM2 for bio-mechanical back pain, facet syndrom's, disc problems and pathological movement patterns causing pain. Mostly low back but doing more cervical and a few shoulders. Results are truly amazing. One example is a patient of mine who came into the office with insidious onset of left sided low back pain with a pain level of 7 with 0 being no pain and 10 the worst possible. His pathological movement pattern was flexion measured at 20 inches of finger tips from the floor and had to stop due to pain. He was belted supine, facing away form the pad, and I was able to compress and reposition him with two belts and no pain in flexion. He did the ATM's, 10 times for 3 seconds. When unbelted him, after walking a bit, he flex to 4 inches of fingertips from floor and pain level of 2. He walked out the door a very happy person. i followed a few days latter and he maintained the improvement.
Needless to say this has changed the way I practice Chiropractic in my sport town of Park City, Utah (2002 Olympics). I have been here for 24 years and this has rejuvinated myself and my practice. I look forward to continued education with your programs and get into the performance enhancement arena.
