Are you looking to safely increase your current mileage with a reduced risk of injury?

Or, are you struggling with an injury which has stopped you running or reduced your mileage?
If you’ve answered yes to either of the above questions, our official physio partner Move Clinics can help you.

At Move they love runners and know that runners love to run!! So injury can be extremely frustrating. There is a way you can get back to running more quickly, continue running with your injury or safely increase your miles with reduced lower limb load.

Introducing the Alter G® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® available at Move Clinics in Chiswick. The Alter G uses anti-gravity technology developed by NASA, it allows the user to run at as low as 20% of their body weight.

The benefit of this is the user is able to run with their regular running style whilst significantly decreasing the loads placed on their lower body, meaning reduced stress on joints and muscles leading to accelerated rehab times, an earlier return to running or ability to increase mileage without risk of injury.

They have been using the Alter G treadmill to help rehabilitate people recovering from a variety of lower limb issues including Achilles tendinopathy, Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction, anterior knee pain, gluteal tendinopathy, ITB pain and lower limb joint replacements.

Of course, the Alter G is not just for those injured runners, it’s a great way to get miles in the legs without the associated stress…therefore a great tool for late in your event preparation or during build up times in your program.

Call Move Clinics on 0208 994 8328 or email to discuss how the Alter G can help with your training.

Anyone who books to use the Alter G before 31st May 2018 will be entered into a prize draw to win a free place in the 2018 Ealing Half marathon.

We’ll leave you with some video footage of one of their patients Tom, using the Alter G to get him back to running after a knee injury.
