Michu uses anti-gravity treadmill for recovery

Alvaro Vazquez tweets a picture of fellow Swansea City striker Michu using an anti-gravity treadmill at the club's training complex.

Swansea City striker Michu has begun running on a high-tech anti-gravity treadmill in a bid to make a quicker recovery from injury.

The 27-year-old was ruled out for "three to four weeks" after picking up knee and ankle complaints, which means he will also miss Spain's friendly matches against Equatorial Guinea and South Africa this week.

A picture of the former Rayo Vallecano star using the device was posted on Twitter by fellow Spaniard Alvaro Vazquez, who is currently on a season-long loan at the Liberty Stadium from Getafe.

Anti-gravity treadmills use an air-tight seal to reduce stress on injured joints, allowing the player to step up their rehabilitation without putting full weight on troublesome areas.

Vazquez's tweet translates to: "From Swansea to the moon."
