Chronic and acute musculoskeletal ailments benefit from hot tub hydrotherapy.
Q: What orthopedic ailments are helped by hydrotherapy?
A: Chronic and acute musculoskeletal ailments benefit from hot tub hydrotherapy. Whether it’s a new injury or a nagging case of sciatica hydrotherapy can help. Injured and fatigued muscles benefit from improved circulation. As blood flows in and out of an area, toxins are transported out and eliminated by the body. The water temperature and pressure of the jets assist with this process. Hot tub circuit therapy is beneficial as well. This involves moving from seat to seat in a hot tub in measured time intervals. Each chair has jets focused on certain muscle groups. Performing stretches and exercises while in the water may be an excellent alternative to land exercises for individuals who lack confidence, have high risk of falling or have joint pain. Water buoyancy reduces the weight that joints, bones and muscles have to bear.

Q: When is the best time to engage in hot tub hydrotherapy?
A: Fit 20 minutes per day into your routine. Refer to personal preferences when deciding on mornings, afternoon or evening plunges. An early morning session will relax you for the day ahead. An evening session will help transform the stress of the day into relaxation. You’ll sleep better too. Each time you slip into the warm healing water tension is released from where it has accumulated in your muscles. Consider going in before you exercise. Research indicates that hot tub hydrotherapy before exercise reduces most of the indirect markers of exercise-induced muscle damage, including muscle soreness.
Q: How does hydrotherapy work?
A: Hydrotherapy, also known as hot tub therapy, water therapy, aquatic therapy, pool therapy, and balneotherapy causes physiological changes in your body. Each type produces different effects on the body depending on the temperature of the water. Hot tub hydrotherapy uses warm water and jets to produce bubbles that deliver intervals of pulses to sections of the body. Outcomes depend upon water temperature, duration of time spent submerged, and pressure. The power of warm water is amazing. These variables trigger physiological responses in the body that foster healing. Research shows hot tub hydrotherapy creates evidence-based positive effects on various systems in the body.
