What is the Hot Footbath?
The hot footbath (HFB) consists of placing the feet in hot water (100 to 110 degrees F) and applying a cold compress to the head for 15-20 minutes. It is given at temperatures ranging from 100-115 degrees F. This treatment can be given with the patient sitting in a chair or lying down. Either way, you need to protect the mattress or floor with plastic.

Do you have arthritis, a sprain, or a broken arm? This treatment could help relieve your pain! Hydrotherapy is the use of water for the treatment of trauma and disease. A contrast bath involves immersing the joint in, and alternating between, hot and cold water. Because heat dilates the blood vessels and cold causes them to get smaller (vasoconstriction), this hydrotherapy treatment helps to increase blood flow in the immersed area, thereby accelerating recovery in the muscles from strenuous exercise.
