"U" - Underwater treadmill (水底跑步機)

Underwater treadmill is a form of hydrotherapy which also includes swimming.

Tuesday 17th July 2018

Hydrotherapy is another type of exercise that we use alongside land-based exercises as part of our complete physiotherapy plan.
Hydrotherapy, when used at the right time in recovery, it can help strengthen individual muscles and build endurance by utilising the water’s buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure and viscosity. Swimming and Underwater treadmill are very different in the way they encourage use of the muscles and joint range of motion and so this needs to be considered too.
