Reduce Tension and Improve Recovery with Antigravity Therapy
What is Antigravity Therapy?
In traditional therapy, weight is put onto the joint or area of the body in need of strengthening and correcting. Even the slightest amount of pressure applied to this area of the body can cause pain and reduce the overall impact of your therapy session. Due to this, removing any kind of pressure or weight applied to the area in question can help accelerate the corrective process. Antigravity therapy removes all forms of pressure applied, which helps improve results.
Injuries come in many forms. Whether chronic or a first-time occurrence, the need to recover and restore an area of the body is necessary. However, depending on the injury, pressure applied simply from standing may cause therapy sessions all but impossible to make it through. With antigravity therapy (active rehabilitation), nearly all pressure is removed to make the therapy session less painful while delivering better results.
Antigravity Therapy Works To…
Strengthen the body and improve range of motion
Reduce the impact of therapy and exercise sessions
Improves overall stability and flexibility of muscles and joints by removing excess weight
Cuts down body pain and other forms of discomfort, commonly experience by those who suffer from joint, cartilage and soft tissue issues
Help manage both new and chronic injuries
Doctors will Often Recommend Antigravity Therapy
Every condition is a case by case basis, so while there may be certain situations where antigravity therapy (active rehabilitation) is not recommended, often it is the preferred form of medical treatment. This form of active rehab is helps lighten the impact of joints suffering from injury. By removing the amount of pressure applied to these joints, the body can fully direct itself to strengthening the muscles and tissues while limiting, or eliminating the amount of pain you experience while going through therapy.
