Mobilisation Mode

Back Care TherapyASMI (Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Instrument) treatment can be used to treat various conditions including sciatica, herniating /bulging discs, pinched nerves, spasms, radicular pain, numbness and tingling, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
ASMI has three settings: AntiSpasm, Reflex and Mobilisation. It is important to realise that mobilisation is not the same technique as spinal manipulation, which can have adverse side effects and often provides no pain relief.
Mobilisation can be used to treat vertebrae that have been moved out of place by old injury and kept in non-optimal place by muscle spasm. Muscle spasm can be treated by the ASMI’s ‘Spasm’ mode. Mobilisation works on the second part of the equation and puts pressure on alternate vertebrae to move (not adjust) vertebrae relative to each other in what should be their normal ROM (Range of Motion). In simple words, mobilisation “makes the vertebrae unstuck”.
Whereas instant cures can and does happen during one session of ASMI, the general rule is that this a progressive treatment, usually requiring 3-5 sessions of the treatment.

For best results have the hand piece in Reflex mode, find the area of the spine you want to work on next, place the hand piece near this area, then do not switch ‘Stop’ then ‘Run’ in the mobilise section, as this will stop the reflex and start the mobilise mode immediately – which makes it difficult to find a place to land the ASMI handpiece on the spine to start the treatment – instead, while it is tapping away in the reflex mode  press the ‘Run’ button in the mobilise section of the buttons. This will switch off the hand piece for a second or two thus enabling you to place the hand piece on the vertebrae where you want it, press down, while it is still off, when the mobilise then starts after this short delay you will then be catching the vertebrae on the upstroke and you can then press down on the hand piece at the end up this upstroke and mobilise the vertebrae in a smooth controlled manner.. This may make little sense when reading it here, but when you use the ASMI it’s easier to understand !
