HOT/COLD CONTRAST TUBS
Alternate back and fourth 3 times from a heated water tub to a cold water tub. Start with 3 minutes of hot and then 1 minute of cold, slowly working your way to a little longer in the cold.
The way hydrotherapy works is with the hot water dilating the blood vessels, sweat glands and removing waste through the lymphatic system. Alternating from hot to cold will reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage .
Contrasting is a great thing for any musculoskeletal injuries especially repetitive strain injuries like plantar fasciitis, shin splits or tennis elbow
