I have been using the ATM concept and the ATM2 in my clinic for some time now. I am still truly amazed at how the ATM2 has very easily integrated into our therapy philosophy that we have used regularly for over two decades at The Center for Integrative Manual Therapy and Diagnostics.
At my clinic, the fundamental premise of Integrative Manual Therapy is in locating and treating the cause of a dysfunction. One of the body's most amazing attributes is its' ability and propensity to heal itself. Most health problems, whether minor or chronic, simply come down to blockages and other dysfunctions that prevent various aspects of the body from self-healing.
The ATM concept beautifully compliments this premise because once a pain-free position is located while using the stabilizing belts, the CNS reverts back to its normal function and reacts in a very normal neuromuscular firing pattern.
What more could you ask for with reestablishing the body's innate healing abilities and normal muscular movements? The ATM2 has my full endorsement.
Today we used the new thoracic belt for the first time on a 17-year-old cerebral palsy child who succeeded in standing with correct (developmentally correct) movement patterns because of the ATM.
