AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ in Doylestown
Empower Yourself to Move in New Ways, Without Pain
Our goal at Advanced Spine and Sports Medicine is to help your body heal without having to resort to drugs or surgery through the use of chiropractic and physical therapy treatment modalities. One of the exciting services we offer is the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ which can remove barriers you may face that keep you from exercising, such as pain or being overweight. This treadmill helps remove these problems as it gives you a feeling of weightlessness, almost as though you’re in the water, but without having to put on a bathing suit. The low-impact exercise sessions are similar to aquatic therapy and allow patients to attain similar benefits but on dry land.
You may benefit from AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill sessions if you have any of the following injuries or conditions:
- Post-surgical pain
- Low back pain
- Foot pain
- Joint pain
- Spine fusions
- Stress fractures
What Is the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™?
At first glance, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill may look like any other treadmill, but soon you’ll realize it’s quite different once the machine is powered on. When you are standing on the treadmill, the casing slowly fills with air, creating a waist-high bubble around the treadmill and your legs. As you begin walking, you’ll notice your legs feel lighter, your joints have less pressure on them, and each step takes much less effort. You’ll feel almost weightless, even with higher speeds and steeper inclines. Even patients who dread exercise due to issues like fatigue or mobility problems might enjoy their experience on the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill and begin to look forward to their sessions.
