Hydrotherapy, also known as aquatic therapy or water therapy, is a therapeutic approach that utilizes water to promote healing, alleviate pain, and improve physical function. This form of therapy has been practiced for centuries and is commonly used in medical, rehabilitation, and wellness settings.
An "anti-gravity treadmill," also known as an "alterG treadmill," is a specialized fitness equipment designed to reduce the effective weight or impact on a person while running or walking. It uses advanced technology to create a unique environment where users can experience a sensation of running or walking in a reduced gravity state.
How it works: The anti-gravity treadmill uses air pressure and a specially designed enclosure to create a lifting force, offsetting a portion of the user's body weight. The technology is based on the principle of differential air pressure, which helps to unweight the user's lower body while they walk or run on the treadmill.

“ I was very impressed at the quick turnaround time and attentive care that I received from the Marjon Therapy clinic. After sustaining a quad injury just weeks before my final triathlon of the season, the team offered holistic support and race day taping to facilitate my participation still. Beth was highly informative and offered sound recommendations regarding pre competition recovery and ways to maintain a training base without further exacerbating my injury. Beth also assisted with pre-race taping to offer support to my injury to get me to the start line as best as possible. I placed third so the advice was clearly beneficial! Thanks to Beth and team ”
“ The Plymouth City Patriots have enjoyed wonderful provision from Plymouth Marjon University. The new partnership deal meant that over the course of the 2022/23 season we were able to enjoy excellent support from various departments including the Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Clinic, Sports Therapy Clinic and work within the Sport & Health Science Lab in Strength and Conditioning. We were also able to make good use of the support from Sport Psychology and Sport Nutrition, which we greatly appreciated for our developing programme. It was great to see students working alongside professionals within a dedicated environment enhancing the student experience in all these areas and more at Marjon University. ”
“ After helping me with my fall on the side of the road, Marjon fully facilitated all my needs after my total hip replacement working with a variety of appointments. Helping with my physio from day one, the students and staff have used the pool, their amazing treadmill and exercises to get me back to health and walking confidently again. Not just for your sporty people. ”
“ Reception & Clinic staff are friendly and informative. The Anti Gravity treadmill is really beneficial for me in gaining mobility and the stretch in my knee. (Recovering from tib/fib break/February/damaged knee, immobile in a cast for 8 weeks). It has helped me massively. It took away my anxiety of not being able, helped rebuild my confidence and showed me what was possible to achieve. After each session I felt like I had worked my body, I felt uplifted and motivated and knowing I was getting closer to getting better. The immediate effects were: muscles more flexible, more bend in my knee, more confidence in my stride, emotionally more positive/stronger. This physiotherapy is instigated by Beth Willment and her vast depth of knowledge of physiology and physical recovery. Her first conversation with me was measured and thorough in working out what I needed. Beth has a real connection in recognising what I need to recover, she offers informed yet sensitive explanations to ensure I understand the benefits of the AG tread. Beth is encouraging and motivational, correcting my (treadmill) movements in leading me forward. She encourages me to work hard, which I'm grateful for. She really does 'know her stuff' and how to deliver with passion and skill. ”
