Underwater Treadmill

Underwater Treadmills provide many advantages over traditional treadmills or walks because we are able to utilize the positive properties of water while adjusting variables like speed and resistance based on the patient’s needs. By using the buoyancy of water, we can get patients who are painful when walking to move without them having to support the full weight of their body, therefore decreasing their pain level. We can also adjust parameters such as speed and resistance as needed. Exercising in water encourages weight loss and increases muscle mass, making it a great addition to a weight-loss program. Other benefits include improving gait, balance, and proprioception, as well as increasing range of motion and endurance.
