Moon Walk Your Way to Physical Rehabilitation

Physical rehabilitation can definitely be a challenge, and often takes a lot of effort for people to reach their results. However, sometimes that effort causes additional pain because of physical limitations or post-operation complications.

Fortunately, we are able to offer a solution that can alleviate pressure and increase range of motion, by removing the gravitational boundaries on our patients. Sadly, we’re not providing physical therapy on the moon, though we do offer the next best thing: the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

Here’s how it works: with the AlterG treadmill, we can reduce the affect of gravity on patients by up to 80 percent. And since we’re able to do this in 1 percent increments, we can calibrate it to the best settings possible for you and your needs. This also allows our patients to progress at their own pace.

Walking or running on the AlterG treadmill is akin to walking on the moon, thanks to the reduced affects of gravity and resistance. In essense, we can help you “moon walk your way to recovery.”

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is perfect for:

  • Physical therapy following an injury or surgery on a lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle or foot).
  • Rehab after total joint replacement.
  • Gait training and strengthening for neurological patients.
  • Strengthening and conditioning in a fall-safe environment for older patients and those who experience balance problems and challenges.
  • Injury prevention for athletes during sport specific conditioning and fitness improvement programs.
  • Patients with lower back pain


AlterG has conducted numerous studies alongside respected doctors and researchers to test the benefits of incorporating the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill into patients’ physical therapy plans. These studies have resulted in dozens of success stories and case studies, which can be found on the AlterG website.

At Galloway Therapy, we also offer Aquatic Therapy services for those patients who are looking for a way to ease into physical therapy, or who may have difficulty with land-based physical rehabilitation.

Our team is passionate about helping our patients reach their goals and improve their health. That’s why we’ll work with you to develop a plan tailored for your individual recovery and progress. If you’re experiencing pain or have any questions about how we can help you reach your health goals, please contact us today.
