AlterG Antigravity Treadmill
get back to walking and running faster with Alter G Antigravity Treadmill
AlterG (anti gravity treadmill) is a great tool for both injured and healthy athletes alike! Currently available in our Broward location in Davie Florida.
What is the alterg and WHO is it good for?
The AlterG is an antigravity treadmill that uses air flow to allow us to unweight you down to as low as 20% of your body weight in increments as small as 1%!
This is great for patients coming back from injury to the lower body or spine such as hamstring strains, ankle sprains, low back pain, ACL repair, meniscus repair, or any other surgery of the lower body or spine!
The AlterG also has technology to assess your gait pattern to identify any compensation patterns in your walking or running and provide you with visual cues to help correct this and thus return you to optimal mechanics much faster after injury!
The AlterG antigravity treadmill is also great for distance athletes, such as marathon or triathlon runners training for an upcoming race, as it allows the athlete to run in the same manner they normally would but with less impact to their bones and joints! This means more longevity and less injuries!

Have you recently undergone an invasive surgical procedure? Do you suffer from foot, ankle, hip, or knee pain that makes running or moving an uncomfortable feat? Do you have an underlying condition that makes joint or muscle pain feel chronic?
These are all common conditions that can be extremely uncomfortable, making you feel limited in your mobility. Pain is inconvenient and isolating, making many people feel as if they are unable to do the activities they used to love. Fortunately, at Alkeme Sports Rx we have the experience, methods, and tools you need to relieve your pain and reclaim your mobility. If you identify with any of these scenarios, you may benefit from our AlterG Antigravity Treadmill treatments in Davie South Florida.
WHAT IS THE ALTERG TREADMILL?
The term “anti-gravity” admittedly makes it sound like a contraption from a science-fiction universe. In reality, this treadmill was created using advanced contemporary science and technology. The Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology has been patented by NASA, allowing for a precise calibration of air pressure. The pressurized mechanics of the treadmill act to “unweight” the patient while the machine is in use. By doing so, the patient is able to use the treadmill by seemingly “floating” above it – allowing them to complete their exercise treatments without the harsh foot-to-treadmill impact you get with normal gravity.
Post-operative patients are the prime candidates for the AlterG Treadmill. Patients are strapped into the middle of it, with their feet enclosed in the pressurized case. By safely securing patients, they are able to use the weight-bearing treadmill freely, without pressure on their legs or the fear of falling off of it. Other conditions that have shown improvement through the AlterG Treadmill include tendinitis, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, spine fusions, stress fractures, neurological disorders, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and total joint replacement.
HOW WILL ALTERG BENEFIT ME?
This device will reduce the impact of your body weight by 80% while in use. It is a form of treatment that can be beneficial to anyone – athletes, seniors, patients working through physical rehabilitation, etc. It provides some much-needed relief that most other treatments simply are not able to do. By releasing the gravitational pressure of your body, the AlterG Treadmill is able to help you comfortably restore your normal walking, jogging, running, and moving mechanics. It also promotes strengthening exercises that heal damaged tissue and build more muscle. All of this adds up to a much safer, quicker, and comfortable recovery than you may experience without it.
The AlterG technology provides a controlled environment for patients to exercise and heal. This allows them to return to doing the activities they love much faster than they may have anticipated. By getting back into physical activity as quickly as possible, patients are able to avoid unwanted risks, such as swelling and inflammation, weakened muscles, or even atrophy.
