Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of illness. We often suggest using home hydrotherapy treatments to patients in order to speed recovery from an illness. These invaluable treatments taught to patients can be used for years to treat people of all ages very comfortably and non-invasively.
One important illness we use Hydrotherapy for is fever. Hydrotherapy can be used on any age patient including small infants or elder to help make fevers more efficient and bring them down to a comfortable level. Hydrotherapy, when used correctly, can safely and effectively take the place of using Tylenol or Ibuprofen for fever, thereby supporting the immune system to move through the fever rather than suppressing it.
Supporting the body and the immune response from a young age to progress through infections and fevers helps to develop and mature the immune response resulting in better health and improved ability to fight infections and chronic illness in the future.
Hydrotherapy can be used, free of cost, to assist in healing from sore throats, ear infections, fevers, respiratory illness, teething, bites and stings, and many other illnesses.
