The perks of hydrotherapy and the effect on your body

Hydrotherapy is the use of water, both internally and externally and at a varying temperatures, for health purposes. Also referred to as water therapy, hydrotherapy includes such treatments as saunas, steam baths, foot baths, contrast therapy, hot and cold showers, and water therapy on a whirlpool hot tub.The obvious perks of hydrotherapy are :

Reducing the effect of body gravity

Hydrotherapyhelp reduced the effect of gravity on the body. Once you substitute waist trouble you're only supporting 50% of your weight. Once you progress to neck trouble 90% of your weight is supported. This suggests you will often perform exercises in water. This successively helps with any stiffness or limited movement you'll have. It also reduces the compressive load if you've got a lower back problem.

Createshydrostatic pressure

Finally, water creates hydrostatic pressure. The deeper you enter water the upper the pressure. This pressure is what’s liable for scuba divers getting ‘the bends’ if they surface too fast from a deep dive. But even in 1-2m of water hydrostatic pressure exists, albeit the amount are fairly low. The advantage of hydrostatic pressure is that it assists circulation by helping your systema lymphaticum return to fluid from your tissues back to the bloodstream so it can often circulate around your body again. If you've got any swelling in your body this is often the method that helps get obviate it. During hydrotherapy the gentle pressure of the water assists in reducing the swelling in those parts of the body submerged under water.


Water also can provide resistance. You will create resistance by forcing floatation devices into the water, or using movement through the water to make resistance. This works muscles during a different way than they're worked ashore and may greatly improve their strength.

Hydrotherapy is performed in warm water. This has the additional advantage of relieving pain and improving flexibility. Even as you employ a heat pack reception to assist with pain and stiffness, the benefit in hydrotherapy is that you simply experience the heat while exercising.
