Hydrotherapy also includes physical activities performed in water, with the water serving as gentle resistance to movement, but without the impact on the body of exercising on hard surfaces. This form of hydrotherapy can be used to gently strengthen the muscles that support your body.
How it works: Use hot and cold water alternatively in the shower to massage your knee area. The force of water reduces pain and soreness on the knee. Target the area of pain with hot water first for three to four minutes. Then follow the same with cold water for thirty to sixty seconds. The hot water therapy will ease stiff muscles and increase blood circulation, while cold water will help reduce inflammation in the neck.
You can also sit in hot tub with jet streams. Your knee pain can be significantly reduced by the turbulence of your spa water as your body is supported in a weightless state by the aerated jet streams.
