Main effects of thermal water on pain:
• Thermal water, thanks to its particular characteristics and its warm temperature, reduces the pain caused by a joint or muscle problem, allowing some movements otherwise impossible to perform.
• By raising the internal temperature of the body, thermal water reduces nerve stimulation that usually transmits pain.
• The raising of temperature itself produces certain substances (endorphins) that have an analgesic effect.
The final synergic effect is a general reduction of pain.
Kinesityerapy (therapy of movement)
and even more hydrokinesiotherapy, is the most effective option to antalgic medicines that normally have side effects.
