EWAC Medical – Active hydrotherapy in burn patients: physical and psychological impact
This video is an excerpt from a more lengthy video by the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). It is a clear illustration of the positive effects of Active Hydrotherapy in Burn Patients and Patients with Severe Scarring. In the water, scar tissue becomes supple, while at the same time the mobility of the joints increases. Psychologically, patients get comfortable with being in public with the severe scars left from their injury. The exercise helps them build their self-confidence. This will help them later on with their reintegration in society.
