Stroke Recovery with Hydrotherapy at Alexa Hydrotherapy Clinic| Newtown Kolkata

Stroke

Also known as cerebrovascular accident(CVA) is damage to the brain due to interruption of its blood supply.

Role of hydrotherapy 

-Submersion in water reduces body weight and makes it easier for stroke patients to move without placing stress on their joints, thereby improving mobility.

-The viscosity property of water provides extra support for the body, allowing it to work on balance and coordination freely.

-Due to the resistance of water it’s possible to gain more strength in less time when exercising.

-Hydrostatic property of water reduces muscle spasms.

-Warm water also stimulates the release of endorphins i.e. body’s natural pain killer.

-Hydrotherapy provides a safe environment for balance training and is more effective than land-based exercises for stroke patients.
