Hydrotherapy is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes water to treat pain and other various conditions. Therapy typically involves immersing your all or part of your body into a tank of water. This means that swimming, having a bath, or using a jacuzzi could all be considered forms of hydrotherapy.
If you’re looking for effective ways to treat back pain, hydrotherapy may be a good option. In one study, 20 patients spend 4 weeks trying hydrotherapy. At the end of the study, patients were sent a questionnaire and asked to rate their pain. Most participants reported a significant reduction in pain, making hydrotherapy a potential option for sufferers of back pain.
Other back pain therapy options include chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and the use of natural herbal remedies.
