Can Hydrotherapy Help Arthritis?

Can Hydrotherapy Help Arthritis?

Arthritis is a very common, painful condition that can affect people of any age. It’s characterized by inflammation of the joints which results in pain that can range from mildly irritating to completely debilitating. Although there are many different types of arthritis, the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage between the joints is worn away which allows friction to occur between the bones. Rheumatoid arthritis is distinguished by an autoimmune system attack on the joints which results in inflammation, swelling, and pain. Although there’s no cure for arthritis, it can be mitigated with surgery and medication. However, physiotherapy is considered to be the least invasive method of protection against the pain caused by arthritis. For those suffering from extreme cases of arthritis, regular exercise may be too painful to execute. This has caused many health professionals to ask, “Can hydrotherapy help arthritis?” In this article, we’ll look at how hydrotherapy might help arthritis sufferers.
