    Diabetic Benefits

    The Aqua Relief hot cold therapy system uses 105° F water to help improve blood circulation in the hands and feet. Or, cold water can also be used to reduce swelling that is associated with diabetic neuropathy.

    Proper foot care and hand care is an important part of diabetes management. In fact, diabetics are prone to problems in these two areas due to lack of circulation, neuropathy, and vulnerabilities. Diabetics also experience discomfort in these areas — pain, coldness, and numbness.

    The aqua-relief hot water therapy system helps relieve the discomfort of achy hands/feet by distributing 10° - 120° Fahrenheit water around these areas. The warm water greatly improves circulation and provides relaxing therapy . The Aqua-relief cold water therapy system can also be set to cold to relieve swelling and edema or to help aid in injury recovery.

    Diabetes often leads to peripheral vascular disease that inhibits a person's blood circulation. With this condition, there is a narrowing of the arteries that frequently leads to significantly decreased circulation in the lower part of the legs and the feet. Poor circulation contributes to diabetic foot problems by reducing the amount of oxygen and nutrition supplied to the skin and other tissue, causing injuries to heal poorly. Poor circulation can also lead to swelling and dryness of the foot. Preventing foot complications is more critical for the diabetic patient because poor circulation impairs the healing process and can lead to ulcers, infection, and other serious foot conditions.

    Pain Management Benefits

    The natural therapy aqua relief system delivers pain relief to achy joints, or muscles due to arthritic pain , or carpal tunnel syndrome or many other nerve pain conditions. Hot therapy aqua relief system is a versatile hot/cold pack that will help for both systemic pain conditions as well as part specific pain conditions (knee, back, wrist, shoulder, etc.) A setting of 120°F is particularly useful to provide deep penetrating therapeutic heat therapy.

    The Pain Cycle: Low back and neck pain may be caused by trauma or continual strain. The body responds to such pain with muscle guarding, an attempt to immobilize the painful site by tightening the muscles. Muscle guarding impairs circulation in the affected area. The decrease in blood supply leads to a decrease in metabolism with an accumulation of waste products moist heat modalities can help break this pain cycle and aid in the normal healing process.

    The Medicare Program

    The aqua-relief hot therapy system is covered by Medicare. You may be eligible to receive a system at no cost to you. A prescription is required.

    People with diabetes are at risk for blood vessel injury, which may be severe enough to cause tissue damage in the legs and feet.
