Alabama’s Director of Sports Medicine - Jeff Allen
Watch Him Discuss the Benefits of using AlterG
Through rehabilitation on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill, Crimson Tide athletes gain confidence, keep cardiovascular fitness during injury, and maintain good biomechanics during the rehab process.
Allen has witnessed his athletes gain tremendous confidence while in a rehab program with the Anti-Gravity Treadmill. By incrementally increasing the percentage of their bodyweight, athletes gain a more positive outlook on the recovery process while maintaining cardiovascular fitness to successfully return to their sport.
Compared to aquatic therapy, the Anti-Gravity Treadmill provides a safe way for Crimson Tide athletes to maintain normal gait patterns and prevent any bad biomechanics from forming. Without the Anti-Gravity Treadmill, poor biomechanics form and athletes have to return to rehab to correct the habits, but since incorporating AlterG, Allen’s athletes are able to recover efficiently and safely.
Watch Allen discuss the success of the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill in the Alabama athletic department.
