What is Hydrotherapy and How Can a Hot Spring Spa Help?

If you’ve been diagnosed with arthritis or you’re recovering from a physical injury, chances are your doctor has suggested hydrotherapy. But, what is hydrotherapy, and most importantly, can it really work? The answer is, yes! In fact, it’s one of the best things you can do to invest in your health.

What is Hydrotherapy?  

Also known as aquatic therapy, this form of physical therapy uses the principles of water to aid in pain relief and promote healing. The buoyancy of the water, in addition to warmer temperatures, increases circulation, flexibility, and can even decrease swelling. This makes hot tubs the perfect place to enjoy a little exercise or to simply soak away pain and inflammation. Once you start using your spa regularly, you’ll experience:

  • Pain relief
  • Fewer muscle spasms
  • Increased joint movement
  • Stronger muscles
  • Improved circulation
  • Better balance and coordination

Who Can Use it?

Anyone can benefit from soaking in a hot tub! However, you’ll find it exceptionally helpful if you’re dealing with:

  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgery conditions like hip replacement or ACL reconstruction
  • Sprains
  • Stroke
  • Neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease or cerebral palsy 
  • Sensory conditions like autism or SPD
