      Experts from the MossRehab Running Clinic will be at the Blue Cross Broad Street Run’s Health and Wellness Expo Presented by Einstein Healthcare Network to analyze proper running technique, demonstrate the AlterG (Antigravity Treadmill) and give away shoelace keychains, sweat towels and iPod armbands.

      MossRehab Running Clinic’s physical therapists, including John Feeley, MSPT, who has trained elite, world-class Olympic runners, specialize in running injuries. From elite athletes to novice runners alike, the Running Clinic evaluates, treats and educates runners on how to reach their highest level of performance, avoid injury, or recover from one.

      MossRehab clinicians utilize the most current evidence-based treatment and technology to keep a runner on their feet, including a comprehensive evaluation comprised of:

      • musculoskeletal examination
      • detailed medical and running history
      • biomechanical analysis
      • video gait analysis.

      The AlterG (Antigravity Treadmill), reduces gravity’s impact while running. The runner/patient steps into an air-tight chamber that seals around their hips. The chamber is then filled with air, supporting the runner/patient’s body weight to varying percentages, allowing them to run with their normal gait even if they have an injury that wouldn’t ordinarily be able to take the stress or support the load of their body while running.

      AlterG has been used in United States Olympic Training Centers and by teams in the NBA, NCAA, NFL and MLB. And anyone at the expo can try it out as well as pick up race gear from Einstein Healthcare Network and MossRehab.
