St Helens RFLC use Alter G at Spire Liverpool Hospital

Super league St Helens players have been impressed with the progress they have made using the Alter G.

Physiotherapist Nathan Hill said "I have used the AlterG anti-gravity devise extensively for the last 4 years.  It is a fantastic adjunct to many rehabilitation or management programs of lower body injuries.  The use of the AlterG at Liverpool Spire has been a great help, it has not only offered the use of a cutting edge machine but also the flexibility to use their excellent facility for preparation and treatment prior to and post use".

"Using the Alter G has allowed players at the club such as Iosia Soliola, James Roby and Mark Flanagan get on their feet and begin functional based exercise earlier than usually expected during their rehabilitation. Leading to an earlier and ultimately much safer return to sport".

The anti-gravity technology used by the AlterG allows users to exercise at a specific fraction of their body weight so that any pain experienced while weight bearing is reduced. At Spire Liverpool Hospital we have a wide range of people using the the machine from professional rugby players to patients who have had hip, knee and foot surgery and are seeing excellent results.
