Ohio Sports Chiropractic Uses AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

July 24, 2012


AlterG treadmills make use of patented NASA technology that allows for precise partial weight bearing. Users can rehab and train like never before. Professional teams and elite medical facilities are using the AlterG to revolutionize recovery programs.

The science of healing and art of training are combined at AlterG to provide users back their health faster. That way, they can spend more time living their life, instead of fixing their body.

Recently, Ohio Sports Chiropractic, a chiropractic clinic specializing in sports rehabilitation treatment, installed NASA’s technology based anti-gravity treadmill, the AlterG.

The treadmill allows quicker rehabilitation, safer conditioning for the geriatric population and weight loss, and eliminates major weight bearing problems that plague these activities. AlterG utilizes a Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology that applies a lifting force to the body and decreases weight on the lower extremities and suspends up to 80 percent of a person’s body weight.

With the AlterG, patients can enjoy natural body movement and train when they are in rehabilitation. Working with the AlterG Treadmill, patients with neurological disorders maintain, and in some cases even regain functionality and mobility, the company stated in a news release.

“The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a breakthrough in enabling those who need to train while injured or for those who want to get back to their lives as quickly and effectively as possibly,” said Dr. Leo Kormanik II, owner of Ohio Sports Chiropractic. “We’re delighted to present this unique opportunity and have one of the few treadmills available to the public.”

Other companies are also making use of the AlterG technology. Sports Reaction Center (SRC) recently announced the public use of Alter-G to help amateur and professional athletes kick start their recovery processes as best they can.

Anti-gravity treadmills like the Alter-G are currently used in several college athletic departments around the country and by individual athletes around the world.
