Hydrotherapy is often a popular adjunct to Physiotherapy due to the benefits that water has on the body that land doesn't offer. But what is Hydrotherapy? Is it the same as water exercises or water aerobics?
Hydrotherapy is water therapy used by Physiotherapists, in which they are trained to specifically use the properties of water to assist with therapy. It preferably takes place in warm pools with the temperature of the water set at 32-34 degrees. This is so that the only energy you are expending is through exercise and not through maintaining your body heat.
