Hydrotherapy on the go:

I drove 500 miles by myself on Wednesday and Friday of this week. (I went to visit my dad.)

Driving for many hours really aggravates my back and neck. I am not the most relaxed driver so I tense up, especially in traffic. I also find that sitting in a car puts my back into a less than ideal stationary position for many long hours.

So I arrived at my destination stiff and sore. However, I had the option for shower as long as I wanted. Now, I love a long hot shower and it does loosen me up. BUT, hot showers are not helpful to inflammation. Cool showers are, however.

So I alternated the water temp. I started with a very comfortable warm shower and when I was warmed up I would change the water to cool and let it hit my back. I went back and forth between the two multiple times.

I felt much much better after my shower.

This will, of course, work at home too for back pain and stiffness. :)
