Symptoms of pressure or fullness in the ear, blurred vision with movement and balance problems combined with unsteadiness indicate the need for an evaluation from our physical therapists. Our therapists will perform a complete evaluation, which includes the observation of posture, balance, movement and compensation strategies to come to a conclusion about the course of treatment for you.
Orthopedic and Sports Injury Rehabilitation
We have a long tradition of providing high quality care for patients with orthopedic, arthritic, or athletic injury problems. All of our outpatient clinics provide evaluation and treatment of soft tissue injuries to the spine and peripheral joints; post-surgical rehabilitation utilizing state the art techniques and equipment; patient education and home exercise programs. Manual therapy, mechanical treatments and various modalities are also available.
We perform services in peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel, sciatica, diabetic neuropathy, and community education programs.
Balance and Fall Prevention Programs
The loss of balance and mobility are NOT inevitable as you grow older. Sudden falls in older individuals are of great concern, since the incidence of balance problems is known to increase significantly with age. We can help you improve your balance!

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
RMS Physical Therapy launches the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
What is the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill?
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, in most aspects, looks and works like a regular treadmill. It was developed with NASA technology to simulate the feeling of weightless walking or running. The AlterG is is created with an advanced air pressure regulation system creating a lifting fource, which allows you to reduce your weight by 20, 30, 50 percent, more or less depending on your need, without altering your natural body movement. The AlterG enables individuals who have been weakened or impared by illness or injury to improve mobility and health, recover from injury & surgery more effectively and overcome medical challenges that limit movement. (www.alter-g.com)
How Does it Work?
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill creates a lifting force that allows for ultra-low impact. Once you are fit on the machine, the belt starts moving and you’re free to adjust the speed and incline, as on a regular treadmill. Only now, you can also control how much of your weight you want to feel. You can reduce your weight to about 20 percent, roughly the same sensation astronauts experience on the moon. With less gravity to fight, exercise becomes pain free. The strain on your knees, hips and lower back disappears, making it easy to maintain mobility and range of motion. This will allow ease and comfort while walking or running, while reducing the amount of impact on your joints.
