What is Hydrotherapy?
WHY HYDROTHERAPY WORKS:
Hydrotherapy uses the physical properties of water to achieve successful outcomes.
- Buoyancy: Creates a weightless environment that alleviates pressure on joints, supports weak muscles & improves balance deficits.
- Viscosity: Creates resistance
- Hydrostatic Pressure: Creates pressure or weight against a body part to help decrease pain and edema.
