Physical Medicine and Hydrotherapy
Physical medicine uses techniques such as massage, stretching, joint manipulation, therapeutic exercise and craniosacral therapy to address pain and illness.
One benefit of physical medicine is the ability to get immediate relief. However many conditions will require several treatments. I work in conjunction with other health care providers such as massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists and personal trainers to provide the best physical medicine for my patients.
Hydrotherapy is an ancient form of physical medicine that utilizes water as its primary tool.
Some common forms of this in our culture are using ice packs on new injuries, or inhaling steam to help decrease nasal congestion. However the uses of water go far beyond this. Using contrasting applications of hot and cold water in different ways can help with several conditions including decreased immunity, infertility, chronic pain conditions, fatigue, and many others.
It is a type of medicine that costs the patient little to no money, and is safe for most people when used correctly.
