How Does Hydotherapy Work?
When the body is immersed in water, a certain level of buoyancy is achieved, making movement of weakened muscles or inflamed joints easier, safer, and less painful. The unique properties of warm water promote the relaxation of muscles and allow joints to move through a greater range of motion to ease pain and restrictions. Water also acts as a resistance, about 60 times more than air, to the entire limbs making it an effective way to gain strength and endurance without compromising joint integrity.
