Active Therapeutic Movement (ATM2) In Watauga TX
Active Therapeutic Movement (ATM2) is an integrated passive and active therapy for musculoskelatal disorders that mobilizes body areas until pain is eliminated. This therapy is performed in a weight bearing position aimed to normalize movement impairments that are detected in the initial consultation. ATM works to immediately alter symptoms affected by the Central Nervous System to provide immediate and long-lasting benefits to many back, neck, shoulder, pelvis, hip and knee sufferers. The ATM2 is a treatment to manage and control acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Significant results of lowered pain level, improved range of movement, general feeling, and functional goals have been achieved with patients immediately during and after treatment. These achievements are then maintained by using the ATM2 system.
Our mission is to enable pain sufferers participating in this treatment to lead a normal life. This will benefit the patient’s quality of life, reducing the time, trouble, and costs of repetitive individual back treatments. ATM will provide immediate significant symptom relief for the suitable patients.
The Challenge: Chronic low back pain
The ability to reduce chronic back and neck pain appears to be one of the biggest challenges worldwide. The novelty of the ATM Concept is that, in almost all cases, not only can it effectively and immediately reduce current symptoms, but it can give you a tool to take home and control the disorder in the future. If the levels of your pain are eliminated or maintained, and your muscles are trained daily in an efficient and comfortable way, the control of your pain might be within reach.
The ATM® Concept has Three Phases
The Examination Phase
The patient is evaluated to determine weather the ATM Concept is suitable. A full examination is undertaken, and contraindications to the ATM2 are searched for. These include pregnancy, internal diseases or conditions, communication problems, psychological factors and others. The patient’s readiness to undertake such a project is required. The most important indicator to use the ATM Concept is the ability to significantly decrease the symptoms using the ATM2.
The Clinic Phase
After the evaluation, and deciding that the patient is suitable for the ATM treatment, we will set the patient on the ATM2 so that the specific painful movement will become totally pain-free. The patient performs 1-2 minutes of comfortable exercises while supported by the patented ATM2 device. Immediately after the treatment we will release the patient from the ATM2. Patients should expect the previously painful movement to have an immediate and significant reduction in pain and an increase in range of motion. The clinic phase will last several sessions depending on the patient’s condition.
The Home Phase
After a successful clinic phase the patient will know how to operate an ATM2 system independently. Daily home exercise sessions will provide long-term control over the disorder, and might prevent future episodes.
