ATM2 Spine Machine
Your body was made to move, especially your spine. It is common for areas of your spine to tighten up, placing too much strain on other areas. When this happens, those areas can become irritated and painful.
You may notice that your pain is worse each morning when you wake up, when you have to stand for more than 10 minutes, or when you have to walk long distances. The severity of back pain can range from minor dull aches to sharp stabbing pains. Pain that radiates from the spine down to the buttocks and legs is typically a sign of sciatica. However, your back pain can be avoided and resolved by improving your spinal health.
You may be wondering, “What does this mean? How can I tell if my spine is healthy?” When we think of health, we typically focus on nutrition, exercise, and heart health – but spine health is incredibly important, as well. Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects your spinal cord, allows you to breathe properly, and it is what allows your body to move. In fact, almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine.
This is why spine health is so important. If you are living with back pain, you know how limiting it can be. In order to make sure your spine is at its optimum health, you must achieve the following:
- Good posture and spinal curves
- Strong abdominal and core muscles
- Strong spinal and gluteus muscles
- Good flexibility and balance with side-bending and rotation
- Good nutrition and rest at night
Fortunately, our ATM2 spine machine can help with this. At Synergy Rehab & Wellness, we want to make sure your spine is as healthy as possible! Request a free discovery session today to find out more about ATM2 and how it can help you achieve optimum spine health!
What is ATM2?
ATM2 stands for “Active Therapeutic Movement” – something that is incredibly important with spine health. This spine machine is an innovative piece of equipment that allows for personalized body repositioning based on the needs of each patient. This is done in order to utilize the best unique and pain-free positions for each patient, in order to gradually improve their spinal strength and alignment.
When this personalized positioning for each patient is found, the ATM2 system works to stabilize the patient, in order to focus on neuromuscular training and body movement isolation. This helps to provide pain relief for the patient, in addition to improving range of motion and overall function.
According to the manufacturer, Back Project Corporation, some of the biggest benefits of ATM2 for spine health rehabilitation include:
- Pain – Pain elimination during the session followed by 50%-100% pain relief for common Back, Neck, Shoulder, Pelvic, Hip, and Knee movement impairments
- Performance – Immediate sports performance enhancement and substantial immediate increases in ROM
- Scoliosis – decreased Cobb Angles (call for ATM2 specific research)
- Osteoporosis – decreased risk of fractures
- Posture & balance – immediate improvement
