OSR Physical Therapy is the only Physical Therapy clinic in the Twin Cities to open their AlterG Treadmill to public use! It is located at our Eden Prairie location.
Imagine Running 50 Pounds Lighter.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is an innovative piece of technology used in physical therapy to help patients recover from injuries or surgeries that affect their lower body. It uses NASA-patented technology that allows patients to exercise with less weight and impact on their joints, making it an ideal tool for rehabilitation and cross-training for athletes.
The AlterG uses a unique air pressure system to lift the patient and reduce their body weight by up to 80 percent. This makes it easier and less painful for patients to walk or run on the treadmill, allowing them to exercise with less strain on their muscles and joints. The treadmill also has a built-in camera system that captures the patient’s gait and balance, which helps the therapist to monitor and track their progress.
One of the primary benefits of the AlterG is that it allows patients to start exercising earlier in the rehabilitation process than they would be able to with traditional methods. This is because the reduced weight and impact on their joints help to decrease pain and inflammation, which allows patients to begin their rehab program sooner.
In addition to physical therapy, the AlterG is also used by runners and athletes as a way to cross-train and reduce the risk of injury. Running on an AlterG treadmill can help athletes to maintain their fitness and conditioning while reducing the risk of overuse injuries or aggravating existing injuries.
We offer self-pay packages for runners and athletes who want to use the AlterG as a way to cross-train or supplement their training. Our packages include a set number of sessions on the AlterG, along with personalized guidance from our experienced physical therapists.
Whether you are recovering from an injury or looking to reduce your risk of injury as a runner or athlete, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill can be an effective tool for rehabilitation and training. Contact OSR Physical Therapy to learn more about our AlterG services and how they can benefit you.
