The whirlpool method of treatment is a form of hydrotherapy that uses circulating water and air with varied temperature and pressure settings for the treatment of certain disorders. The whirlpool is a special bathtub with pumps placed at different points to produce and circulate air bubbles and water. The air bubbles and the circulating water massage the body and aids in improving blood circulation and range of motion. It is also a very effective method in the treatment of wounds such as ulcers, burns, and other such superficial abrasions. The whirlpool action cleans the wound of dead tissues, enhances blood circulation and relieves pain. A whirlpool may use cold or hot water, and it can be provided to the whole body or a single body area depending upon the necessity of the patient. Each session in the whirlpool may last from 10 to 30 minutes and may be provided once or twice daily.
