“I would give ESSMC a 10 and recommend them to all of my friends. In all the years that I have been treated, they make you feel like a person. Everyone cares for you – the front desk staff, the PT techs and the therapists. They are the best.”
“After suffering a serious femur fracture, my goal for rehab was to be able to run again. I didn’t think I would. Alter G changed all that. After months of rehab, I was able to run again because of the Alter G. Even though formal rehab has ended, I continue to use the Alter G to run pain free. Its a great way to keep running without full pounding impact while I continue to heal and gain strength.”

“Just a few weeks after finishing the Boston Marathon, a cycling accident left me with substantial injuries. Recovery required a wheelchair, a walker, physical therapy, and no running for six long months. I was totally devastated! Distance running is my greatest passion; I love the challenge of racing and the sense of accomplishment after pushing myself to new limits.
When I was finally healed and able to run again, I was constantly sidelined by compensation injuries. After two years of comeback attempts, I started to wonder if my marathon days were over. I was strongly considering couch potato when a friend suggested that I try out the Alter-G treadmill at a demo session hosted by ESSMC and Pro Bike + Run. The demo run nearly brought me to tears. I was finally able to do what I love most and do it PAIN FREE!
Since that day I have added weekly Alter-G runs to my training regimen. Anti-gravity running allows me to increase mileage and pace without pain or risk of injury.
The staff at ESSMC Penn Hills has been wonderful! I can’t thank them enough for accommodating my schedule, allowing me to train at their facility, and for bringing Alter-G technology to the East Hills.
I am signed up for a half marathon in May, and I’m confident there are many more miles in my future – with and without gravity.”
