According to a WebPT survey given to thousands of Physical Therapy Clinics around the world, WebPT highlights and asked "which industry leading un-weighting equipment options they offer or would like to offer". DPTSI provides our community with all three: AlterG®, HydroWorx®& Biodex unweighting systems! This technology helps patients rehab quicker and safer. DPTSI proudly offers all of these therapy options locally at our outpatient clinic in Edinburg, Texas.

Thanks to its precise unweighting technology, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows you to push your physical therapy rehabilitation and training further than ever before.
You can:

  • Reduce gravity’s impact by selecting any weight between 20% and 100% of your body weight by 1% increments
  • Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact
  • Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions
  • Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensively while unweighted
  • Train without pain and reduce the stress to joints and muscles
  • Recover effectively and with less pain after training or competition


Find Your Form
The innovative AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a game changer in physical therapy rehabilitation. Whether you’re a patient or an athlete dealing with lower body injuries, chronic pain or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the unweighting capabilities. The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people – top level athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatric and those looking to lose weight – to achieve their personal health, wellness or performance goals.

The AlterG Difference
With its unique unweighting capabilities, the Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows you and your physical therapist to move your rehabilitation and training forward by:

Allowing you to walk or run with no pain while maintaining a normal gait
Reducing stress on joints and injured areas of your lower body

HydroWorx Underwater Treadmill

The therapists at DPTSI utilize the underwater treadmill in their rehabilitation programs.

If you have a bone or joint injury, weight bearing can add pressure and increase pain in the affected area. Aquatic therapy helps to significantly decrease pain as the buoyancy of the water reduces weight bearing on joints and fractures. The underwater treadmill will enable you to remain active and do those exercises you wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. These activities will increase blood supply to your joints and soft tissues, stimulating the healing process.

Aquatic therapy is well known for its amazing effects with speeding recovery, preventing injuries, and weight loss. Whatever the diagnosis, the pain associated with rehabilitation can be significantly decreased in water because it reduces the weight bearing on joints and fractures.

Some of the diagnoses that can be treated in our pool include:

  • Back Pain
  • Following a joint replacement
  • Following internal fixation of lower extremity fractures
  • Arthritis, Fibromyalgia
  • Neurological and neuromuscular disorders
  • Overuse injuries and stress fracture
  • Weight loss


Features of our pool include:

  • Variable speed underwater treadmill
  • Underwater cameras with monitors allowing patient to monitor their gate
  • Resistance jets with variable speeds for increased resistance during rehab
  • Massage hose to relax tired and sore muscles
