The specialty trained physical and occupational therapists at Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation utilize state-of-the-art equipment and technology to help each patient return to a pain-free lifestyle. Our therapists are committed to staying on top of the latest research and trends in physical therapy.
If you choose to receive treatment at one of the more than 35 convenient Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation locations throughout Greater Houston, you’ll have access to advanced technologies and techniques, including:
If you need help regaining or improving mobility, strength, natural movement and fitness, the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ could be the solution. Using NASA’s advanced Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, this machine can reduce your gravitational load and body weight, lessening the impact on tendons and joints while continuing to provide the benefits of cardiovascular exercise.
The AlterG treadmill works just like a regular treadmill with the added advantage of a large chamber that uses air pressure to support your lower body during movement. Patients with arthritis, stroke or stress fractures can regain confidence in their ability to move without pain or restriction thanks to the AlterG’s ability to fine-tune adjustments in one-percent increments.
If you have trouble maintaining an exercise regimen outside of your clinic visits, you may respond well to the TRX suspension training program. This convenient workout program gives you access to over 300 exercises from your home or any other location. If you choose to utilize the program, our clinicians will work with you to develop a variety of creative and fun exercises that leverage gravity and your own body weight to deliver a total-body workout suitable for your age and fitness level.
TRX equipment is incredibly easy to use and beneficial for anyone who may have difficulty using traditional exercise machines. And, unlike other specialized training equipment, the TRX Suspension Trainer is portable, allowing you to maintain post-treatment fitness levels in the comfort of your own home.
Active release is a type of manual therapy that involves the physical stimulation of muscles and joints. This hands-on technique seeks to break up adhesions (bands of scar-like tissue) that can limit range of motion and/or cause pain. Research shows that active release may offer physiological benefits in addition to therapy’s capacity to promote relaxation, which can encourage your to carry out your therapist’s recommended exercises at home.
