I use the ATM2 in my practice for the correction of pathologic muscle firing patterns in the low back, shoulders, neck, and hip. Specifically, I have observed that not only do my patients have biomechanical joint dysfunctions, but also attending spastic muscle patterns that serve to "hold" or limit the joint from completely letting go of its abnormal movement. Hence, the patient never achieves normal.
Since I started using the ATM2 my results are much improved helping the patient reach an asymptomatic normal joint and muscle firing pattern. I've used it to resolve bursitis, capsulitis, pinched nerves, sprain/strain injuries and most recently in conjuction with disc decompression therapy both in the neck and the low back. I employ a number of different techniques for my patients including neuromuscular re-education, proprioceptive therapy, gua-sha, strapping with kinesio tape, chiropractic adjustments, and electrical therapy and although these are very effective none of them address the musculoskeletal pathologies at the central nervous system level which, as you well know, is exactly what the ATM2 does.
Frankly, the ATM2 allows me and my staff to go to the mother board of the computer which is the brain and reprogram it to stop sending signals to the muscles to spasm. Once we do this everything else in our repertoire becomes much more effective and successful.
