The ATM is a unique device and treatment method unlike anything in current clinical practice.
Until now the inability to clinically isolate and train/recruit the multifidi muscle complex has impoverished and limited any and all interventions in spinal care patients. It is a paradigm shift in the comprehension and definition of spinal stabilization. The specificity of the multifidi complex recruitment achieves marked changes in pain, ROM, function and posture.
The ATM is both subtle and profound in its effects. In 23 years of clinical practice I have never seen postural alignment correct itself so markedly without any effort on behalf of the patient and without any ongoing postural exercises or continuous home program.
The ATM is remarkable.
