Injury Rehabilitation in East Lancashire
Although free to Crow Wood members as an additional benefit to membership, the Alter G is also available to the public to use.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where injury prevents you from exercising? We all have, and we all know it’s extremely frustrating. Especially if you enjoy partaking in sports or lead a physically demanding lifestyle. Fortunately, recent game-changing technology means you can benefit from similar rehabilitation techniques professional athletes take advantage of to promote fast recovery. Want to quickly and safely recover from a sports injury? The Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill here at Crow Wood in Burnley may be exactly what you need. Say goodbye to aches & pains and hello to non-painful, controlled weight bearing cardiovascular training while injured. Don’t get set back!
Studies show that an earlier return to activity following injury prevents atrophy of supporting muscles, decreases swelling, and improves outcomes
Sports injuries are unavoidable, natural recovery takes time
When injured, professional footballers have the luxury of top-quality physiotherapy sessions to get back on track and do so relatively quickly (depending on severity of injury). When the average person sustains an injury such as a sprained ankle or other form of injury, they are often forced to avoid any serious cardiovascular exercise for excessive lengths of time, which is obviously a real pain for those looking to stay in shape, or even those wishing to recover as fast as possible due to work or hobbies.
