Take the Pressure Off Your Body
Epic Care’s Hydrotherapy Program
Hydrotherapy is the therapeutic use of water to provide relief from pain and to treat the symptoms of disease. It has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain and provide relaxation. Water has many different properties that aid in the relief of pain and has a calming and relaxing effect on the patient.
Hydrotherapy benefits include the reduction of muscle tension and relief from pain, which leads to a relaxing sensation and stress relief. Movements done through hydrotherapy are possible through the support of the water, which takes pressure off the patients’ body and gives a feeling of weightlessness while stimulating muscles. The warm temperature of the water improves blood flow which helps restore damaged muscles and joints.
Epic Care Health’s hydrotherapy takes place in a heated pool, which provides a pleasant, relaxing experience for the patient. The pool is shallow and there is always another person in the pool with the patient, so confidence with water is not required to be involved in a therapy session. Therapy sessions are provided by a licensed therapist trained in the different types of body movements designed to alleviate the patient’s condition.
