Diversity along with stretches are good. I'm just simply trying to point out that treadmills could help him. I don't believe he should stay clear of treadmills, like you have stated. Also, depending on your schedule, running (outdoors) in the afternoon is not advisable, especially in this blazing heat.
As for the brand of treadmills; Precor, Nordic Track, and my favorite Smooth all have great cushioned models.
