The Active Therapeutic Movement (i.e. ATM) Concept is a technique used by chiropractic clinicians to assist their patients in providing immediate pain reduction, increased range of motion and improved bodily function. This is accomplished by using the ATM 2 device (as shown in the video) to restrict the overall body movement so that the patient’s problem area can be attended to through an isolated body motion or function. Once the patient’s problem area is isolated to a specific body motion or function, chiropractic clinicians assist the patient in doing what are called neuromuscular training or reeducation exercises.
By doing this, the given area of the body that has impaired movement is “normalized” by repositioning the joints related to this same problem-area of the body. The result is immediate pain reduction, increased range of motion and improved bodily function.
Note: the ATM Concept is beneficial to patient’s with chronic or acute pain, scoliosis, posture concerns and to athletes in general.
