Hydrotherapy belongs to the category of physical therapy, and it is a method for preventing and treating diseases by acting on the human body in different forms and ways with various kinds of water with different temperatures, pressures, and components. Any method that uses the physical properties of water and acts on the human body in various ways to treat diseases and functional rehabilitation is also called hydrotherapy.
 
Therapeutic effect
 
Liquid water can fully contact with various parts of the body and transmit physical and chemical stimuli to achieve the therapeutic effect.
 
Water has large specific heat, large heat capacity, and strong thermal conductivity. The warming effect of hydrotherapy can dilate and congestion blood vessels, promote blood circulation and metabolism, reduce nerve excitability, reduce pain, and relieve spasm. A warm water bath has a sedative effect.
 
No matter the temperature stimulation is applied in the local part or the whole body, renal vessels will expand with the expansion of skin vessels, active congestion occurs, so the urine volume increases; however, during long-term heat treatment, due to excessive sweating, the urine volume decreases.
 
Under cold therapy, urine is increased initially due to smaller vessel caliber and oliguria, followed by vasodilatation. Prolonged immersion in warm or flat warm water (1-2 hours) dilates renal vessels and has a diuretic effect. This increase in output is the result of a significant improvement in blood circulation.
