ALTER G Antigravity Treadmill
North Bay Therapy is the only physical therapy clinic on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with an Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Developed with NASA technology to provide unweighted therapy, the "anti-gravity" chamber counteracts gravitational forces to reduce impact, pain, and effort. It provides up to 80% body weight support to reduce stress and strain on your body, allowing you to run and train without discomfort. The Alter G is great for orthopedic, neurological, and chronic conditions and sports performance improvement.
Biodex System 4
Offering the latest technology in neuromuscular and rehabilitation technology, Biodex testing provides an objective evaluation and can be used to reassess function and adjust your plan of care. This system offers the versatility to treat multiple body parts at almost every phase of the rehabilitation process. It is one of the fastest ways to identify, treat and document the physical impairments that may be causing your functional limitations. It offers both upper and lower body cycle equipment to effectively improve mobility, function and strength.
Biodex Balance System
Designed to the meet the needs of everyone looking to improve balance, increase agility and develop muscle tone, this tool enables us to establish a baseline for treatment, record improvement and safely challenge individuals to fully-rehabilitate from a wide variety of conditions from sports conditioning to fall prevention.
This equipment uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve neurocompression often associated with lower back pain. It has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing herniation, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place and reversing high intradiscal pressure.
After only three weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving debilitating pain. Pre- and post-treatment MRIs have shown greater than a 50% reduction in the size and extent of herniations and 82% patient relief from back pain.
This is an offloading device with one, two or three stations that allow the patient to perform low-impact kinetic exercises in an upright functional position. Its unweighting and unloading system comfortably supports the patient’s weight during rehabilitation exercises thus reducing stress on weight-bearing joints. Activities such as walking, running, stair climbing, jumping and balance can all be performed safely in this unweighted condition with 360 degree range of motion.
