Active Therapeutic Movement In Ogden UT

Chiropractic Ogden UT Active Therapeutic Movement

One tool we use quite frequently at our Ogden UT chiropractic clinic with great success is the ATM2 therapy machine. The ATM2 machine (which stands for Active Therapeutic Movement) is a type of physical therapy equipment that is designed to help improve mobility and relieve pain in the spine and back muscles. ATM2 therapy uses a unique system of harnesses, belts, and pulleys to reposition the bones of the pelvis and provide targeted support and resistance to the body as it moves through a series of isometric exercises and stretches.

What Can ATM2 Therapy Help In Ogden UT?

ATM2 back therapy can be helpful for a variety of conditions, including herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and other types of back pain. The therapy is typically provided by licensed chiropractors or physical therapists who are trained in the use of the ATM2 machine.

During an ATM2 back therapy session, the patient is first evaluated outside of the machine to determine the most painful motion patterns. The patient is then harnessed into the machine by tightening belts in a position that allows for the relief of pain of the previously painful motion patterns. Once the pain-free positioning is achieved the patient then performs a series of isometric exercises and movements that are designed to neurologically reinforce the pain-free positioning of the muscles and ligaments in the back.

How Can ATM2 Therapy Help Me?

The therapy is unique to each patient due to the specificity of positioning and tension required to create the pain-free movement pattern. Many of our patients refer to the ATM2 as the bear hugger because of its snug hold on the body. It is not painful and most patients find the ATM2 to be tremendously pain relieving.

Overall, ATM2 back therapy has proven to be a safe and effective way to improve mobility and relieve pain in the back. It is one of my favorite tools to have in my office.
