Anti-Gravity Treadmill for Hip & Back Injuries
Our Anti-Gravity Treadmill reduces the loading during walking, jogging and running, allowing our clients to move at a percentage of their own body weight. This minimises the pressure and stress through the joints and muscles during rehab, allowing someone with a current injury to continue training and recover faster while maintaining fitness along the way.
This technology is a game changer for the rehabilitation of lower limb injuries from the spine and hips to the knees, shins and ankles. It is positioned greatly for athletic rehabilitation of all levels due to its unique ability to reduce forces going through the lower body.
Hip & Lower Back Injuries
There are many types of hip and back injuries which can occur due to sport, work or normal daily activities. These injuries affect many parts of the hip and back, including discs, tendons, muscle and/or the joint itself.
No matter the concern however, painful hips and backs make it extremely difficult to run, move, play sport and exercise in general. Usually these types of injuries result in a prolonged period off, waiting while the injury heals and only completing basic exercises. Our Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows the recovery and retraining to begin earlier however as we can begin walking, jogging and running again at modified loads, starting at just 20% body weight. This earlier return to exercise means an earlier return to full activity!
Hip & Back Surgery
If severe enough, hip and back injuries may get to the point that they require surgery. Regardless of the type of surgery, one of the best indicators for a quick recovery is how fast someone can return to walking again.
With the use of an Anti-Gravity Treadmill, we can help those coming back from hip or back surgeries, returning to normal walking faster. We commonly see compensation patterns occur in the early stages of walking and running following surgery, and this can overload other body parts trying to help out. Using an Anti-Gravity Treadmill we can decrease the overall weight going through the injured hip or back and allow for much more normal movement patterns.
