AlterG and Chronic Injuries

The AlterG treadmill works to fight the gravitational pull on your body, minimizing the stress on your joints, particularly on your knee joints. So while you continue to train at high speeds, you experience little discomfort. In addition to that, your joints receive a kind of padding against increased stress, thereby enabling you to make a full and quick recovery without compromising on your training routine.

This treadmill has proven to be the perfect training apparatus, even after you have sustained a chronic injury. Here's how the anti-gravity treadmill works to train athletes, enhance stamina, and develop muscle strength.

  • Allows you to run for long periods of time, thus enabling you to rehabilitate faster and go experience less pain. This means that you can indulge in exercises for extended periods without risking any permanent damage to your joints. Consequently, you recover faster and experience less pain.
  • Enables you to adjust the intensity of your training routine. With the AlterG treadmill, you can control the difficulty level of your training, meaning you can gradually increase the intensity of your training regime in line with your recovery.
  • Reduces the chance of damage.

If you are someone who succumbs to chronic injuries often, incorporating a gravity-defying AlterG Treadmill might be the perfect solution to get back on your feet in the shortest possible time.
