How is dry hydrotherapy better?
One of the main aspects that dry hydrotherapy focuses on is the treatment method known as whirlpool, or wet hydrotherapy. Whirlpool uses pressurized systems of water to target pain, and while this has proven to yield positive results in patients, using a water-based form of therapy still some undesirable drawbacks:
- Performing treatments in water leads to the risk of spreading illness and disease between patients.
- Water-based therapies increase the risk of slip-and-fall injuries, especially in patients who may be unsteady on their feet.
- There is a large amount of maintenance required, in order to ensure that a pool or other body of water within a clinic is functioning properly.
