The Physio Clinic is fortunate enough to have the only Anti-Gravity Treadmill in South Australia outside of the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Football Clubs and it has been made exclusively available to our clients.
What is an Anti-Gravity Treadmill?
It’s a revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill with a unique air pressure technology to allow for accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy.
How is it used?
It’s used predominantly for post surgery rehabilitation, conditioning, injury rehab, weight loss and offers the following benefits:
• Greater support to improve your gait pattern (walking/running)
• Maintain strength & fitness while recovering from surgery or injury
• A safer way to lose weight and exercise more intensively
• Run longer and recovery faster with less pain
The Anti-Gravity Treadmill can reduce gravity by up to 80% of your body weight, lessening the impact on your lower limbs, enabling you to exercise for longer and recover faster.This is ideal for people who are looking to improve their walking/running after surgery or injury.
Common conditions that can be treated:
• knee surgery (total knee replacement, ACL reconstruction, meniscal repair, cartilage damage)
• hip surgery (total hip replacement, hip arthroscopy, labral tear)
• stress fractures (shin splints)
• load management for runners and athletes (tendinitis, tendinopathy, bursitis, compartment syndrome)
• exercising in a moon boot or if partial weightbearing due to injury/surgery
• lower limb muscle strains (muscle tear, pulled muscle)
• ankle injury (sprained ankle, achilles pain, plantarfasciitis, heel pain)
• weight loss • lower back pain (disc bulge, nerve pain, sciatica)
A trained physiotherapist at The Physio Clinic will perform a thorough assessment to determine your current physical abilities and goals, then guide you through the process of using the treadmill. The treadmill may be used in conjunction with an exercise program and/or physiotherapy treatment pending your injury/condition and your goals to maximise results.
