Paramount will be featured in the Pinconning Journal tomorrow with the following article: Do You Want to Defy Gravity? The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® enhances therapist’s ability to help patients recover faster while decreasing impact on joints. Unlike any other piece of training equipment available, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill can take you further, faster than you ever thought possible after surgery, injury or other mobility impairment

  • Allows patients to rehabilitate with less pain while reducing the risk of further injury, which may enable patients to heal faster.
  • Reduce gravity’s impact by selecting any weight between 20% and 100% of your body weight by 1% increments
  • Rehabilitate low back and lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact
  • Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions
  • Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensively while unweighted
  • Train without pain and reduce the stress to joints and muscles
  • Rehab after total joint replacement
  • Gait training and strengthening for neurological patients
  • Strengthening and conditioning in a fall-safe environment for older patients
Find Your Form The innovative AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a game changer in physical therapy rehabilitation. Whether you’re a patient or an athlete dealing with joint replacement, lower body injuries, chronic pain or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the unweighting capabilities. The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people – top level athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatric and those looking to lose weight - to achieve their personal health, wellness or performance goals.

Tip Tuesday!

Tip Tuesday! We wanted to share an article about how to have a sensory friendly 4th of July. 1. Prepare your child for the day Utilize a visual schedule or show your child clips of fireworks or parades (whatever activity you will be doing).

2. Bring favorite and familiar items 3. Establish a safe place Establish a place your child could go to such as underneath of a blanket, in the wagon covered by the blanket, or in a small tent 4. Engage in heavy work activities Heavy work is calming to the body. Actions like pushing, pulling, lifting, chewing and squeezing are all meant to engage the body and, in a sense, organize the nervous system. Ideas include giving your child gum or licorice to chew, having them load the car and/or pull the cooler or wagon. 5. Bring along sunglasses and noise blocking headphones Noise blocking headphones and sunglasses can prevent over stimulation 6. Stay mindful of the situation If your child becomes overwhelmed you may need to put them into a safe situation or leave to go home.

Tip Tuesday! Due to the national health epidemic of overuse and addictions to prescription painkillers, recent studies show that the CDC recommends physical therapy for chronic pain over the use of opioids in many cases. According to APTA "'The contextual evidence review found that many nonpharmacologic therapies, including physical therapy, weight loss for knee osteoarthritis, psychological therapies such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and certain interventional procedures can ameliorate chronic pain," the guidelines state. 'There is high-quality evidence that exercise therapy (a prominent modality in physical therapy) for hip or knee osteoarthritis reduces pain and improves function immediately after treatment and that the improvements are sustained for at least 2-6 months. Previous guidelines have strongly recommended aerobic, aquatic, and/or resistance exercises for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. Exercise therapy also can help reduce pain and improve function in low back pain and can improve global well-being and physical function in fibromyalgia.'"

We have aquatic therapy, the AlterG Anti-Gravity treadmill, as well as, traditional land based physical therapy that can address chronic pain conditions. For more information if we can help you with chronic pain please send us a message, comment, or call us at 989-891-9800.
