Rec Center Physical Therapy is proud to have an AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill which is available for our patients as well as for individual use.
The AlterG anti-gravity treadmill uses unweighting technology to reduce gravity's impact by selecting from 100% down to 20% of normal body weight. This effectively allows you to rehab or train with less impact to your joints and less pain.
The treadmill can be used to help treat a wide range of diagnoses and populations including:
- Top Level Athletes
- Orthopedic Injuries
- Neurologic Conditions
- Pediatric Patients
- Geriatric Patients
- Weight Loss
The treadmill provides a safe and effective way to train patients or clients who are trying to lose weight by allowing those individuals to exercise and move more intensely. Individuals are able to walk or run with no pain and this allows them to maintain a normal gait.
We utilize the treadmill to help individuals restore a normal gait pattern after having many lower extremity post-operative conditions, including post-ACL repair and total knee arthroplasty. We help our patients make the next step in the rehab process with the use of the AlterG, whether that be to return being able to walk around the block or running on the athletic field.
The treadmill can also be utilized to help supplement the high level athletes training program. The AlterG environment provides a fall safe environment to help strengthen and condition the older adult population, including those recovering from total joint replacements.
