Evolution Physical Therapy First Clinic in Southern California to Introduce NASA-Designed Anti-Gravity Treadmill for Public Use

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolution Physical Therapy, one of Los Angeles' most innovative, technologically-advanced providers of outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation services, is the first and only physical therapy facility in Southern California to offer Alter-G's unique G-Trainer anti-gravity treadmill for athletic training and medical treatment programs.
