I still use the ATM2 daily with excellent results. I rely on it more and more as a training device.

The results speak for themselves.

I couldn't conceive of working for another facility because there would be no ATM2.

I am an orthopedic manual therapist working in my own practice for over 25 years. For the last two years we have used the ATM 2 exercise device. The more we used it the more proficient we've become. I've used it to increase range of motion, to get rid of pain and for core strengthening.

The biggest group of people I place on the ATM 2 are people with lower back pain. Its at a point now that I'm not sure what I would do without it. I view the training as superior to what I was doing before. It is especially well received by the clients I put on it. Its a comforting feeling knowing that we don't proceed if there is any pain. The type of diagnosis I've seen are disc degeneration, stenosis, redicular pain, scoliosis, lumbar instability, and hypo mobility. Next are the knee clients.

With the ATM 2 it is used for strengthening. We have also treated thoracic outlet syndrome and acute neck pain and stiffness. There are some golfers among are back and shoulder clients, so we offer them the opportunity to increase their mobility for greater timing and tempo on their golf drives.

I haven't spoken to you in months.  Just needed to tell you how much I have integrated the ATM2 into my PT clinic.  

We use it every day. I am sooo glad I listened to you and purchased a unit. Hope all is well.
