Please note that these are spontaneous unedited responses from clinicians whom actively use the ATM Concept and ATM2 systems in their respective clinics. None of these clinical educators received any compensation for their endorsement. (The ATM2 was formerly called the PR3000T and Pelvic Restrainer).

The ATM2 has been a fantastic discovery both personally and professionally. My husband, a professional golfer, has lived with pain for the past 6 years. With the help of the ATM2, he was relieved of pain the very first time he received treatment. The additional stabilization allowed him to perform stretching exercises and increase his range of motion beyond what traditional physical therapy results has offered him the past. After treatment, he was much better able to weight transfer to his right side, helping to stabilize his backswing as well!

At PhysioFit Physical Therapy, we use the ATM2 to treat people with back, hip, neck and shoulder pain. Because of this new addition to our clinic, we have experienced some incredible results. We feel it has been very significant in helping our patients understand the relationship of exercise, stretching, and posture to their symptoms. Patients and clients have realized how important it is to be proactive in managing their pain and improving performance in a sport or hobby. By setting up a patient or client up on the ATM2, we have been able to help them focus on how it feels to engage the core muscles. In turn, this has increased the effectiveness of our use of Pilates in rehabilitation and fitness training, which requires strengthening core muscles.

The ATM2 has been a tremendous help for our clinic. Each belt is equivalent to a physical therapist’s stabilization allowing your physical therapist to direct the active therapeutic movement more effectively. Using the ATM2 is like having several therapists working simultaneously! Not only have we been able to treat a variety of diagnoses in people with an orthopedic mechanical dysfunction, but it has also helped decrease pain and stiffness in joints, increase range of motion and stretch tight muscles.

Patients have reported a significant decrease in chronic pain and difficulty with activities of daily living that were completely corrected/eliminated with the use of the ATM2. We are excited to have such wonderful results and look forward to helping others!
