Active Therapeutic Movement Rehabilitation (A.T.M)



Our office now utilizes the most advanced Active Therapeutic Movement Rehabilitation, with the ATM2.  Our ATM2 based treatments are the "missing link" for patients who are suffering from both acute and chronic pain who have tried other treatments with no relief.  We have been achieving amazing results results of lowered pain levels, improved range of movement, general feeling, and functional goals immediately, during and after treatment.


How does it work?

You can normalize a specific movement problem by repositioning a particular joint related to the movement impairment.  Using the ATM2 you can simultaneously reposition and compress particular areas of the body to normalize most movement impairments. The patient will be in an upright weight bearing position that immediately and safely allows them to do fully resisted movements in the direction and range of the previously impaired movement. According to the ATM Concept, when you transition a painful movement to become pain-free, the Central Nervous System (CNS) transitions from a pathological muscle activation pattern to a normal (pain-free) muscle activation pattern. Specific resisted movements now become pain-free, which causes the CNS to memorize this pain-free [ATM2 Active Therapeutic Movement Springfield VA] muscle activation pattern. The outcome is an immediate and significant reduction in pain in almost all musculo-skeletal patients.                                                               

How long does it take?

Each treatment takes approximately 5-7 minutes.  After the patient is secured in the ATM pain free, a series of movements are preformed to aid the Central Nervous System (CNS) in memorizing the new muscular firing pattern to achieve pain free movement.  The amount of treatments needed  depends on the person and their restrictions.


The ATM2 combined with Chiropractic, Active Release Techniques, Graston Technique, and  Spinal Decompression are providing fantastic results for many of our chronic patients.  By offering these new, state-of-the-art procedures in our clinic we are able to help those of you who have had failed surgeries, who have found nothing else to work, and patients who are looking for complete comprehensive care at one location.
