To discover more about how this incredible therapy can help patients throughout New Jersey down the path to recovery, let’s dive into the information on this page.

What is Alter-G®?

When you’ve got an upcoming game or just want to get back to the gym as soon as possible, you don’t want lack of mobility or a recent injury to hold you back. However, when you opt for the exclusive technology of the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill, you’ll get your body back into fighting shape with precise therapy.

This remarkable treatment utilizes a unique, differential air pressure to gradually reacquaint your physique with exercise, all while maintaining normal gait patterns. That way, you can prepare for that half-marathon or start recovering from a muscle strain while working up a sweat.

What Conditions Does Alter-G® Treat?

Recovering from a sports injury, a torn ligament, or anything else requires lots of patience and hard work. And with the help of technologies like the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill®, you’ll ease your body back into a regular fitness routine under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist.

Some of the stress-related injuries that can benefit from regular Alter-G® training are:

  • Hamstring and Quad injuries
  • Stress Fractures
  • Plantar Fascia
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Shin Splits
  • Balance disorders after a concussion
  • Achilles tendinitis and more

How Does It Work?

Soaring through your marathon training routine just got a lot easier thanks to the Alter-G® Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

That’s because this machine’s pressurized chamber works against gravity and allows you to perform your fitness session with a body weight as low as 20%. So, if you happen to be suffering from chronic pain or a stubborn injury, you’ll be able to move at your typical pace and with a normal gait.

To begin your Alter-G® session, slip on some neoprene shorts, which have zipper teeth around the sides so that you can secure yourself into the treadmill’s plastic casing.

Once you’ve stepped inside, simply zipper the shorts to the plastic casing. That way, the anti-gravity chamber will be sealed for proper functioning. From there, your weight will be measured, and you can select the weight of your workout—from 20% weight to 100% weight.
