Physiological Response To Post Exercise Hydrotherapy Podcast

Evidence for the benefits of many recovery practices is currently increasing and the mechanisms behind these improvements in performance are becoming clearer. One of the area’s most studies is the physiological changes that occur when undergoing hydrotherapy. However, considerable individual variation in responses to recovery strategies exists and is likely related to factors such as temperature, duration, frequency and timing of recovery sessions.

Accelerated and appropriate recovery can enable the athlete to continually train and perform at the highest level, and as such should be a critical element in any training and competition program. Understanding the physiological changes that occur with hydrotherapy can help guide the delivery of recovery in a practical setting when working with athletes and the general population.

 The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 18 July 2018.

Presented by Dr Shona Halson, PhD
