AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill®

This unique equipment will enable you to walk or run at a lower percentage of your body weight, which reduces pain during training and rehabilitation. The treadmill allows you to gently “unweight” yourself with positive air pressure to reduce the effects of gravity on your body. This may enable you to regain, maintain, and improve your mobility while minimizing the stress on your body, particularly areas of your body that have been injured. Like many patients, you may find the treadmill helps you:

  • Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and impact
  • Lose weight safely and exercise more intensely while unweighted
  • Train without pain and reduce the stress on joints and muscles
  • Recover effectively and with less pain after training or competition

The anti-gravity treadmill is especially popular with injured athletes because it reduces the risk of re-injury during rehabilitation while also maintaining cardiovascular fitness.

Cost: $15 for one session; $50 for five sessions; $100 for 20 sessions

Offered through Upper Valley Medical Center and Miami Valley Hospital. Prices may vary by location.

  • Baseball-specific screening and assessment of flexibility, strength and posture
  • Video analysis of throwing mechanics
  • Drills and techniques to improve throwing mechanics
  • Baseball-specific conditioning
