Orthopedics

Our legs are designed to support pain-free movement, but after an injury or surgery, the weight of our own bodies can hamper the recovery process. The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill®, available at several Atlantic Rehabilitation locations, can help you regain your mobility faster with minimal discomfort. It uses N.A.S.A. differential air pressure technology, which simulates a reduced gravity environment, so you can walk or run without putting extra strain on your joints and muscles.
