Hot tubs are the perfect relaxation tool, but did you know they have medicinal properties as well? Hydrotherapy, also known as Water Cure, uses water for pain relief and occupational therapy.
1. Circulation and Immunity
Added blood flow and oxygen throughout your body gives you more energy, allowing you to feel better faster. More blood circulation helps you to fight off diseases and boost the immune system, keeping you feeling great even longer. Efficient circulation keeps your heart and lungs in tip-top shape, as well as the transportation of those white-knight blood cells your body uses to ward off infection.
2. Balance and Coordination
Water is full of beneficial properties, including strengthening your muscles with the use of buoyancy and gravity. Hydrotherapy with specific aquatic exercises is a great therapy for those with neurological and autoimmune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis. It is also useful in helping to prevent falls and for post-surgery exercise on knees and hips.
3. Manage your Migraines
Migraines are a nightmare, causing a severe pulsing or throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head and can last for hours; sometimes even days. Often accompanied by nausea or vomiting, those who suffer from them will tell you traditional medicine just doesn’t cut it. Hydrotherapy works because, with migraines, the blood vessels in your head swell allowing a greater volume than normal of blood to flow throughout your brain. Warm or hot water on your lower extremities will tell your body to send the extra blood down towards your feet.
