About the Course

This course introduces manual therapists to hydrotherapy and the ways in which water can be used therapeutically. Delve into the history of hydrotherapy before learning more about the effects that temperature can have on different body systems and tissues.

Discover the laws of thermodynamics, the thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties of water, and how the body responds to thermal stress. Finally, consider how this understanding can be applied through hydrotherapy to benefit patients.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Learn about the thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties of water and how these affect the outcome of the hydrotherapy application.

  • Observe how heat can be transferred to and from an object and discover how to apply these concepts in treatment.
  • How hydrotherapy can alter blood flow within the body.
  • The anatomical components of the skin and their role in temperature regulation.

Approvals Information

Dexterity Professional Development submits courses for approval to regulatory colleges and associations across the world. Timelines vary and courses are submitted on a rolling basis. As approvals are granted, this section is updated. Remember to check back often!

Canadian approvals are updated upon receipt.

American approvals are updated upon receipt.

International approvals are updated upon receipt.

Under the CMTO’s new Quality Assurance Program (STRiVE), courses are no longer granted approval by the CMTO. It is up to the learner to demonstrate that a course is relevant to their learning goals and the STRiVE competencies. We have provided the description below to help the learner link the course to the STRiVE competencies. A course is often related to more STRiVE competencies than those listed.

The competencies below are established in the CMTO continuing education guidelines. This course addresses the competencies in many ways, including those described below.

Function in a client-centered manner.

This course provides the manual therapist with an understanding of the effects that hydrotherapy can have on the body, and the scientific principles that account for these effects. This enhanced understanding will ensure that the therapist can educate their patients about hydrotherapy, answer questions, and it better equips the therapist to obtain informed consent to incorporate it into their treatment plan.

Work within areas of personal knowledge and skills.

This course explains the science behind water and temperature to better understand the effects of hydrotherapy on the body. The manual therapist will gain an understanding of how temperature applications can elicit a response from multiple body systems including the integumentary system, the cardiovascular system, and the central nervous system. This course will ensure that manual therapists who are interested in incorporating hydrotherapy into their practice will be doing so with an excellent foundational understanding of what it is and how and why it works.

Practice in a self-reflective manner.

This course enhances the RMT’s understanding of hydrotherapy, including the science behind it. The RMT who takes this course has reflected upon their practice and their decisions and recognizes where knowledge should be enhanced. Through taking this course, the RMT draws on external information to achieve continuous learning and quality improvement.

Practice in a manner consistent with current developments in the profession.

This course was developed based on research and practice-based evidence that has been collected and documented for many years. It provides the manual therapist with a foundation of understanding of the effects of hydrotherapy on the body. The knowledge attained through this course can assist the manual therapist in determining if hydrotherapy can be an effective and appropriate addition to their current treatment plan. It will also assist them in communicating in a clear, educated, patient-focused manner about hydrotherapy with their patients.
