Arthritis pain strikes anywhere, anytime, leaving many with no other option but to reach for prescription medication. If you’re looking for an alternative, or something that’s more natural, a hot tub can help.
Here are three ways to use a hot tub for arthritis relief.
Soak Away Aches in Elevated Heat
Pain is the one constant with arthritis, whether it’s a sore hip, aching back or stiff knees. Luckily, heat has been known to reduce pain, and is the hot tub’s defining feature. Submerge the entire body at once in hot water and relaxation is immediate, from the bottom of your feet to the tip of your head.
Let Personal Massage Ease Stiffness
Often, arthritis creates just pain and stiffness, making movement difficult and mobility challenging. Using a hot tub at home a few days a week is a simple way to stretch the limbs in a buoyant environment without feeling pain.
Relax, Restore and Regenerate
Hot tub enthusiasts say that the one benefit of ownership that doesn’t get enough attention is the mental benefit. Using a hot tub causes the body to releases endorphins—the body’s feel good hormones, these are key to maintaining a happy, healthy outlook.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve it!
It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.
To encourage people to check out the benefits of owning their own hot tub, Baker Pool & Spa will be providing free test soaks for local residents all month long. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call the company ahead of time to reserve their spot.
