Active Therapeutic Movement
Active therapeutic movements are targeted, repeated movements performed on the ATM machine that retrain the brain and the disordered muscle group to perform movements in the correct way. After several sessions, the neuromuscular system adjusts to the new, pain-free version of the exercise, using it in place of the previous, incorrect movement that caused the patient pain. Many prominent golfers and athletes are very excited about this new way of retraining the body because it works faster and more effectively than traditional methods of rehabilitation.
Gerry James, World Long Drive Golfing Champion, is one of those excited people. According to BackProject.com, James experienced an “immediate 25% increase in his rotational range of motion,” which improved his ability to drive the ball with power and control. The two-time world champion said, “For a person that trains six days a week and is at the peak of his performance, this is truly amazing.”
This new technology is a medical breakthrough that will bring patients real pain relief and an improved quality of life. ATM therapy is an important complement chiropractic care, massage therapy, and rehabilitation exercises.
In addition to back pain, the ATM system can target neck, shoulder, hip, and knee pain. After documenting a patient’s history and specific pain complaint, the therapist finds the optimal position in the machine for that patient’s neuromuscular problem. Once carefully strapped in by the therapist, the patient performs a specific regimen of precise exercises against light resistance. Patients normally feel immediate results, but they must complete a series of sessions to ensure long-term improvement.

How long can I wear Kinesio Tape?
A durable 3 to 4 day wearing period avoids the hassle of applying and removing traditional sports tapes every few hours. It also gives lasting support and pain relief.
How does it work?
The unique Kinesio Taping Method structurally lifts the skin and allows the flow of body fluids under the application area, reducing edema, inflammation, and discomfort.
