Unweighting Therapy

Find Effective Pain Relief with Unweighted Therapy!

Pain is inconvenient and isolating, making many people feel as if they are unable to do the activities they used to love. Fortunately, at Evolving Gait Physical Therapy we can help you find effective pain relief with unweighted therapy.

Our Medford, NY physical therapists have the experience, methods, and tools you need to relieve your pain and reclaim your mobility.

With our unweighted therapy treatments, we are able to treat several conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgical rehab
  • Balance system
  • Spinal decompression
  • Spinal pain

Unweighted therapy is similar to aquatic therapy, without the pool. It is a great way for you to regain your strength and mobility without fear of falling or putting too much stress on the affected area(s) of the body.

If you think you could benefit from unweighted therapy, request an appointment at our physical therapy office today! One of our dedicated Medford, NY physical therapists would be happy to meet with you to discuss if unweighted therapy would be right for you.

What does unweighted therapy do?

Many of our pieces of balance equipment use pressurized mechanics to “unweight” the patient while the machine is in use. By doing so, you are able to use the equipment and complete your exercise treatments freely, without the harsh impact you get with normal gravity.

You are also safely secured into all of our balance equipment used during unweighted therapy sessions, and are constantly supervised by a Medford, NY physical therapist. This maximizes your safety and allows you to confidently use the machines without pressure on your affected joints or the fear of falling off of it.

Is unweighted therapy right for me?

Unweighted therapy is a form of treatment that can be beneficial to anyone – athletes, seniors, people working through physical rehabilitation, etc. It provides some much-needed relief that most other treatments simply are not able to do.

By releasing the gravitational pressure of your body, our advanced and innovative pieces of equipment are able to help you comfortably restore your normal walking, jogging, running, and moving mechanics.

Unweighted therapy also promotes strengthening exercises that heal damaged tissue and build more muscle. All of this adds up to a much safer, quicker, and comfortable recovery than you may experience without this form of treatment.

Get started today!

Our unweighted machines provide a controlled environment for you to exercise and heal. This allows you to return to doing the activiies you love much faster than you may have anticipated.

By getting back into physical activity as quickly as possible, you are able to avoid unwanted risks, such as swelling and inflammation, weakened muscles, or even atrophy.

At Evolving Gait Physical Therapy, we are dedicated to creating the best physical therapy treatment plan for your specific needs.

After your first appointment, your Medford, NY physical therapist will perform a physical evaluation to see where your problem areas are and what the best course of action will be for reversing those problems. During this time, your physical therapist will determine if our unweighted balance equipment is the best treatment for you.
