Alter G Treadmill

The AlterG is revolutionary with its state-of-the-art differential air pressure technology that provides accurate, safe, and game-changing unweighting capabilities. Developed by NASA and refined by AlterG, users can reduce gravity's impact by unweighting in 1% increments to as low as 20% of actual body weight. Whether you are trying to get faster, train with less stress, or maintain fitness while recovering from injury, AlterG is the solution for you! 

  • Push your training sessions further and longer with less risk of injury
  • Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensely while unweighted
  • Recover effectively with less pain after training or competition

 

 

 

Light Force Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Effective laser therapy administration is a direct function of power of the laser light and dose delivered. Administering the optimal treatment dose to patients produces consistent positive outcomes. Class IV therapy lasers provide a deeper depth of tissue penetration and ultimately provide a dose that results in positive reproducible outcomes. Higher wattage also results in faster treatment times and provides results unachievable with low wattage lasers. These lasers provide a level of versatility unrivaled by other Class I, II, and IIIb lasers due to their ability to treat both superficial and deep tissue conditions.

The Science Behind the NormaTec MVP Recovery System

NormaTec’s founder, a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD), recognized the powerful potential of external dynamic compression and its crucial role in healing and recovery. NormaTec developed and patented Sequential Pulse Technology, and the NormaTec Recovery System was born.

Sequential Pulse Technology goes way beyond Sequential Intermittent Compression

Sequential Pulse Technology is based on normal physiology, and it synergistically combines three distinctive massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process.

 

 

1) Pulsing: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). Our patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.

2) Gradients: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent backflow of fluid. Similarly, Sequential Pulse Technology utilizes gradient hold pressures to keep your body’s fluids from being forced down toward your feet by the pulsing action in proximal zones. Because of this enhancement, Sequential Pulse Technology can deliver maximum pressure throughout the entire limb and the effectiveness of the pulsing action is not diminished near the top of the limb.

3) Distal release: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

While a healthy athlete’s body eventually will recover from an intense workout, using the Sequential Pulse Technology found only in a NormaTec Recovery System for just 20 minutes can significantly speed recovery

 

 

Active Release Technique


The goal of ART® is to restore optimal texture, motion, and function of the soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions or fibrosis in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion , and constant pressure or tension. ART® eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions. Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.

 

 

 

 

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique® (GT) Instruments, while enhancing the clinician's ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including: Cervical sprain/Strain, Lumbar sprain/strain, Adhesions, Scar Tissue, Plantar Fasciitis (foot pain), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain), Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), Rotator Cuff Tendinosis (shoulder pain), Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain), Achilles Tendinosis (ankle pain), Fibromyalgia, Trigger Finger, Shin Splints and more.


 

 

Rapid Release Technique

 Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress.  This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dies, dries out, constricts and becomes brittle.   Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion.  Adhesions can spread, entrapping nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion.  Un-diagnosed pain and restricted mobility are likely to be caused by these adhesions.    Scar Tissue Therapy ™ is focused on relief of soft tissue problems caused by scar tissue adhesions.  The shearing force of planar wave energy passes safely through flexible healthy tissue, but readily absorbed by the brittle, dense scar tissue.

RRT has determined the optimum frequency that resonates with the scar tissue for maximum effectiveness by using high speed video shot at 2000  frames/second.  With only a 2mm stroke, this therapy is feels good and is completely safe.  We believe that Scar Tissue Therapy™ is the most effective way to treat painful scar tissue.  Scar Tissue Therapy is fast, painless and lasting.

Functional Movement Screening

 

What is the Functional Movement Screen (FMS)?


 The FMS screen is a simple and effective tool used by FMS professionals to capture a client/athlete's current movement quality and injury risk. Seven total movement patterns as well as additional assessments are screened to further identify the issue within the movement pattern, narrowing it down to a mobility, stability, or dynamic stability issue.

Screening lays the baseline for developing a corrective strategy blueprint to improve your "weak links", manage risk, and prioritize exercise selection for your workouts. This non-biased baseline allows asymmetries and deviations to be efficiently identified. Asymmetries always take priority since they create the highest risk for injury, as research has shown us that these
asymmetries and deviations can increase the risk of injury by 3.5 times.

Study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2953296/

Screening & Scoring Rules
Each movement pattern is allowed 3 attempts and scored as follows:
3 - movement excellence (perfect score)
2 - movement competence (requisite for loading movements)
1 - movement dysfunction (needs correcting)
*0 - pain

A score of 0 must be evaluated and treated by a medical professional*
Scoring Goals & Results

A score of 21 (all 3's) is NOT the goal. The goal is to eliminate all asymmetries and achieve at least symmetrical 2's on each
movement screen

A score of 15 or more is desired, although depending on your sport and injury history, the cutoff for injury risk would be a
score of 16. The number one risk factor for future injury is previous injury!

A score of 14 or less predicts a higher risk of injury in individuals without previous injury


 Test/Retest
After screening and correcting the weakest links, the next step would be to retest the dysfunctional patterns, and expect a positive outcome of improved functional movement!
