At St. Luke's Rehabilitation our physical, occupational, and speech therapists provide personalized care to help you recover from an injury or surgery, or to help you manage a chronic condition. We specialize in orthopedic and neurologic rehabilitation, hand therapy, lymphedema, spine therapy, and geriatrics.
Our treatment programs include balance and vestibular therapy, arthritis therapy, osteoporosis rehabilitation, cancer rehabilitation, speech and language therapy, cognitive therapy, concussion rehabilitation, including ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), and sports medicine. We offer ergonomic evaluations, modified barium swallow testing, and access to an AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill®, which can help reduce recovery time after surgery, injury, or other mobility impairment. We also offer two classes for those with Parkinson’s disease: a speech and articulation class, and mobility and balance class.
Consider trying the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® as part of your recovery, rehab, or ongoing fitness maintenance program. It can help you regain mobility, develop strength and fitness, and increase range of motion and natural movement; all while minimizing stress on injuries.
Using the AlterG, you can walk, run, or even jump with less pain, pressure, and force than with normal, full weight-bearing exercise.
Located at our Ketchum clinic, the AlterG is available for use by anyone in the community.
Sessions are 30 minutes each, and $5 per session after an initial $40 evaluation and orientation. You're welcome to schedule back-to-back sessions for a one-hour workout.
