Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy for Bath Attendants, Nurses and Biophysical Assistants considers the general principles and practice of hydrology and physiotherapy. This book is composed of two parts encompassing nine chapters. Part I deals first with the general principles of hydrology and hydrotherapy, followed by discussions on the application of water in motion in various forms, such as steam vapor, compresses, and hot air. Part II examines first the basic principles of physiotherapy, including the nature and properties of the physical forces that can be used for treatment. This part looks into forces or rays used medically, such as electro-magnetic, heat, light, actinic, X-rays, and radium rays. This book is directed to those who want to become bath attendants, nurses, and biophysical attendants.
