Physical therapy is all about providing treatment in the form of strengthening exercises for any physical injury. We offer specialized equipment at both H2 Health and Atlas Physical Therapy call the AlterG® Treadmill. Our Anti-Gravity Treadmill empowers people to move in new ways and without pain – to recover mobility, improve wellness, and enhance physical performance.
Out AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses patented, NASA technology to create a pressurized air calibration chamber customized to the user’s body weight. Using a pressurized air chamber to uniformly reduce body weight in precise 1% increments allows the user to move unrestricted and pain-free. This allows the body to build muscle strength, increase range of motion, improve balance, and exercise without the wear and tear of gravity.
While there is a plethora of conditions that the AlterG Treadmill can help with! Whether you are training to increase speed, increasing the frequency, recovering from an injury, working on your balance, and everything in between, this treatment has proven success. Common injuries include:
- Ankle sprains/strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis/repair
- Stress fractures
- Shin splints
- Calf strains
- Hamstring or quadriceps strains
- Gait issues
