We use the ATM2 in our clinic on an almost daily basis. I frequently treat lower back patients, thoracic spine pain, hip problems, and cervical pain on this piece of equipment. It has shown me excellent results in reducing clients pain, radiating symptoms, and also shows strength improvements by isolating their areas of pain to a much smaller area, allowing better muscle contractions for strength gains.
I have had clients who get off of it, and say they feel “taller” and that they walk with less restriction. I have treated shoulder clients on it, and can isolate out the weaknesses with the straps, when they don’t realize they have been compensating their movements. I believe the ATM2 is easy to use, and clients feel secure once they have tried it and look forward to using it again.
Just this past week after 2 sessions on it with a client who had been in a MVA with upper thoracic pain, the pain levels dropped by over 75% in 1 week.
Diagnosis that I have used on it include lowback strain, disc herniation, cervical strain, postural dysfunction, rotator cuff syndrome, hip DJD, thoracic strain, trunk weakness and pelvic malalignments.
Thank you and I have used it personally for neck pain and hip limitations with good results after 1-2 sessions on it. It works!
