The patient should drink 1 or 2 glasses of cold water before the bath and the head should be kept cool. The procedure is same as in cold spinal bath, but after the bath exercise should not be done, instead the patient should relax for 30 minutes.
The neutral spinal bath is a soothing and sedative treatment especially when the nerves are in an irritable condition. It is the ideal treatment recommended for insomnia (loss of sleep). It also relieves muscular tension of the vertebral column when it is exhausted with prolonged sitting, exercise and labour. It relieves congestion of the lungs and relaxes the cardiac muscles.
This also soothes the nervous system, the back muscles, low back sprains and help one in treating Sciatica.
