Myalgia or muscle pain is very common not only in elders but also in young ones. It can be caused due to different reasons which include stress, tension, increased physical activity, and injury in muscles.
There are many different treatments for curing muscle pain depending upon the severity of the pain. If the pain is not severe it is treated by resting the area of the body experiencing pain or by applying ice packs or taking a warm shower. But if the pain is chronic then hydrotherapy is the best treatment of all.
The biggest benefit of hydrotherapy is that the warm water used in it helps greatly in soothing aching muscles. Moving water stimulates the touch receptors of the skin and as a result soreness of muscles is reduced and blood circulation is increased. As in water, the gravitational effects are lowered and the body feels weightless, the pressure on joints and muscles is reduced.
This reduces the pain in our bodies. In addition to pain relief, hydrotherapy also helps to strengthen our muscles and body balance is maintained. The equipment used in hydrotherapy is hot tubs, pools, whirlpools, weights, water treadmills, dumbbells, treadmills, resistance gloves, etc. This equipment is used by experts to create a safe aquatic environment for exercise. Warm water is mostly used as it is helpful for increasing muscle mobility.
The best way to increase muscle mobility by hydrotherapy is to use water treadmills. When exercising in water, the pressure on our bodies is very low. This is beneficial for our body as it helps to reduce pain in our joints, muscles, and other parts of the body. Hydrotherapy not only maintains our health but also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
