October 1, 2013 in News by Horizon Physical Therapy  |  Comments Off

In an effort to better serve our patients as well as the greater Athens running community, we are excited to announce that we have purchased an Alter-G treadmill.  The Alter-G is a state-of-the-art anti-gravity treadmill that allows injured runners to run throughout the rehab process and allows healthy runners to train with less stress on their lower body and less risk of injury. The Alter-G has also become an integral training tool for many professional runners and triathletes due to its ability to assist runners with “overspeed training”.

Our Alter-G will be up and running on Tuesday, October 15.  We are currently selling punch cards good for 2 hours on the Alter-G.  The time may be broken down into 15 minute increments and used as you wish.  Also, runners may purchase individual sessions in 15 minute increments.  Additionally, runners may purchase a monthly Alter-G membership which is good for 5 hours of Alter-G run time per week for 4 weeks.

Runners who call on or before Friday, October 11, to schedule an Alter-G appointment will get 15 minutes free with no obligations.

Call 706-548-7300 today to schedule a time to run on the Alter-G.

Dry Needling Offered Beginning May 20, 2013

We are pleased to announce that beginning May 20, 2013 we will be offering functional dry needling to all of our patients. Dry needling is a relatively new procedure that combines traditional acupuncture approaches with deep tissue, myofascial release, and trigger point release therapies and has been shown to be very beneficial in decreasing healing time, improving muscular extensibility, decreasing musculoskeletal stress, and effectively treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Additionally, functional dry needling is a version of intramuscular massage and is very effective in reversing the negative effects of endurance training. Often, endurance athletes who have had multiple (3-5) traditional deep tissue massage sessions will receive the same benefit from one functional dry needling session. Call or click to schedule your functional dry needling appointment today.
