Physical Therapy Central Helps Patients Recover With AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
Physical Therapy Central (PTC) is proud to announce that their Choctaw, Midtown OKC, and Newcastle clinics are now home to the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, a revolutionary technology that is often used by professional athletes to continue training stress-free while recovering from injury.
The treadmill uses technology created by NASA to enable faster lower extremity rehabilitation and safer conditioning while removing up to 80% (in 1% increments) of the weight normally included in these activities. The AlterG’s pressurized enclosure provides counterforce to a person’s weight, greatly reducing the impact force to the musculoskeletal system and creating a stress-free running and walking environment. Across the world, Olympic athletes, professional athletes, runners, and people struggling with obesity or neurological issues like Parkinson’s disease and strokes are operating the technology both in their gyms and at home.
“The precision that the AlterG allows when removing body weight is unparalleled by aquatic therapy and harnesses,” said RaeAnn Thomas, PT, DPT, OCS. “The technology has drastically transformed rehabilitation and we look forward to receiving feedback as we incorporate it into our patients’ recovery programs.”
