Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest types of health treatments in existence today. Hydrotherapy works because of two properties inherent in water: temperate and buoyancy. Water is an excellent substance with which to carry temperature. It can retain heat in a form that can easily be applied to the body. These temperatures then affect the ways in which the body works. In particular, temperature helps to aid in dilation and constriction of blood vessels. This change in the blood vessels allows for improved circulation, better waste removal, and faster healing.
Stress is not necessarily good or bad. Some amount of stress is a natural part of life, and our bodies are equipped to deal with it. When a situation we perceive as stressful arises, like vigorous exercise, our bodies release hormones such as adrenaline that increase our heart rate and metabolism, raise blood sugar levels, and tense our muscles.
Arthritis affects over 40 million people and causes pain, general stiffness, and, for some, swelling and inflammation of the joints. Treatment by a physician may focus on controlling pain, minimizing degeneration or optimizing a treatment plan for maximum benefits. Effective treatment often combines medicine with exercise and relaxation techniques.
