Underwater Treadmill Therapy

Exercising in water offers more resistance than air and this supportive environment boosts user confidence and promotes slower, more deliberate movements.

Programmes in our underwater treadmills provide all the benefits of exercise without putting stress on the joints, making this ideal for people who have existing joint problems or who are recovering from an injury or operation.

Why Water

Hydrostatic Pressure

● Reduces heart rate & arterial pressure
● Reduces peripheral oedema
● Increases metabolic rate & calorific burn


● Relaxes muscles
● Relieves pain
● Increases circulation


● Reduces load on painful joints
● Improves flexibility
● Improves core stability


● Supports weak muscles & limbs
● Increases workout intensity
● Cushions movement

Surface Tension

● Improves patients balance
● Increases confidence
● Adds resistance to specific areas

With easy access, 34⁰C water and physiotherapy-led sessions, our Underwater Treadmill provides a comfortable, safe way to exercise for people of all ages and all levels of mobility.

From arthritis to obesity, following orthopaedic surgery or an injury – we can make a positive impact on a whole range of debilitating conditions.

What Our Patients Say

Living with arthritis
“I feel at least 80% better than I was. I’m in a lot less pain and can walk for much longer periods. My balance has improved and I’ve lost weight too.” – Denzil

After surgery
“With H2O Physio hydrotherapy I was able to recover from knee surgery much faster. I was just sitting around for weeks and was desperate to get back to normal.” – Harsimran

Back pain relief
“I’ve suffered with back issues for years and found it too painful to exercise. Finally I’ve discovered a great way to keep fit and help my back at the same time.” – Simon

Accident recovery
“H2O Physio helped me to rehabilitate after my foot was crushed in an accident at work that left with walking difficulties and constant pain.” – Maurice

Neurological disorder
“Peripheral Myelitis badly affected my mobility but H2O Physio hydrotherapy has given me the ideal way to manage this condition and improve my quality of life.” – Evan

Weight loss success
“H2O Physio is a fantastic way to lose weight. I’ve lost almost 5 stone in just 24 sessions, even with severe joint pain and two new knees.” – Sue
