Hydrotherapy is a natural treatment which involves performing exercises in the water. The warm moist environment provided by the water, physiologically helps with healing specific part of the body. Some studies and evidence has found the use of hydrotherapy to improve the management of pain.


A study by Gill in 2009 investigated the effect of land and aquatic physiotherapy prior to surgery. They found immediate pain relief was better in the aquatic hydrotherapy group. This gives us great information on an additional form of pain relief, prior to engaging into surgery.

Another study in 2007 investigated the effect of regular attendance of hydrotherapy for people with osteoarthritis. They found an improvement in pain, stiffness, hip strength and quality of life in patients who suffered with osteoarthritis, after a six week program.


In conclusion, there has been several articles showing the positive effect of aquatic and hydrotherapy sessions conducted in the water. While some studies have shown a general improvement in pain management, others have shown improvement in physical function and stiffness. While hydrotherapy is a great form of treatment, we believe it needs to be done in conjunction with other forms of physiotherapy treatment.
