Hydrotherapy

After any type of injury or surgery, increasing your mobility while still maintaining conditioning is a top priority. Group23’s advanced HydroWorx aquatic underwater treadmill allows you to correctly simulate land-based walking, running or sports-specific activities without the body weight and joint impact to help improve cardiovascular stamina. Advanced physio hydrotherapy helps promote healing and improve range of motion, while also strengthening muscle and injured tissues with the use of a pool treadmill, water treadmill or underwater treadmill.

Anti-Gravity Treadmill

We pride ourselves on offering the most advanced physical therapy technology available. If you have been injured or are in rehabilitation, our AlterG® Anti Gravity Treadmill can help to regain mobility, develop strength and fitness, plus increase range of motion and natural movement—all while minimizing stress on your injuries. 

The anti gravity treadmill provides physical therapists a precise way to track patient progress, keeping patients engaged and motivated. Ideal for hip replacement patients.


Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy works with your body to stimulate the natural healing process through a series of non-invasive high-energy pulses. Radial shockwave therapy is easy to apply and has proven beneficial with patients seeing little improvement through traditional physical therapy. It is an effective treatment option for jumper’s knee, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, heel spurs, prolonged muscle pain, chronic tendinopathy, medial tibial stress syndrome, calcification, hip pain - areas where tissue attaches to bone. In some cases, it can potentially help eliminate the need for surgery altogether.
