Hydrotherapy is not a new concept - in fact, it actually dates as far back as ancient Greek and Roman times. In those days, people didn’t know the science behind it, they just knew that it made them feel better. Today we have a better grasp on what all the benefits of hydrotherapy are and who they benefit. We at Kiltipper Woods Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy clinic Dublin 24 have been treating people with Hydrotherapy on a daily basis since 2010.
There are many of reasons why hydrotherapy is so useful. Firstly there will be a degree of weightlessness on the body that will take pressure off areas that are experiencing pain. Also when the water is moving through “current” technology it massages the body, which increases circulation and can relax tight muscles. The effect on the body is also proven to combat things such as stress. All this leads to numerous benefits, including increasing the metabolic rate , improving functions of various internal organs through the increase of blood flow, loosening tense muscles, and even boosting the immune system. These are just some of the benefits! Remember also that our pool is heated to 34 degree’s which will instantly relax pain and stiffness.
Some of the conditions hydrotherapy can help include arthritis, sleep disorders, stress, headaches, depression, acne, muscle issues, nerve problems, joint inflammation, stomach issues, post-op recovery and so on. Hydrotherapy is often used simply as a relaxation technique, which, when done frequently, can prevent many of the illnesses and conditions that we now know are brought on by unresolved stress.
