    Ive done it. It's hard, and it's a workout, but that's about all I got from it. Didn't really improve my walking either, it was just part of the work out that did.

    A number of spinal injury patients have re-gained the ability to walk thanks to physical therapy on an underwater treadmill.

    Physical therapist Sandra Stevens has helped many people to walk again using the rehabilitation method, Newswise.com reports.

    Ms Stevens is using the underwater treadmill, which is inside a fibreglass tank containing 270 gallons of water, for her doctoral research at Middle Tennessee State University.

    One patient, Janette Rodgers, was told she would never walk again after she was involved in a car accident and was even nearly taken off life-support.
