This piece of equipment retrains the muscles and nerves allowing patients to move in a pain-free motion, often eliminating back and neck pain during the first visit. Subsequent treatments will help prevent the recurrence of pain while strengthen their muscles. Traditional therapy has patients performing tasks against the direction of the painful movements. The ATM has patients moving in the direction of their pain, but allows them to do it pain-free by using adjustable belts and ratchets to control the weight of gravity and amount of pressure the patients receive. The body memorizes (muscle memory) these pain-free movements, joints are repositioned, and patients find that they can then perform these same motions off the unit. This machine works best for neck pain, mid back pain, low back pain and pelvic pain.
