Arthritis is a very common condition, negatively affecting the lives of people around the world. If you had to ask someone who suffers from arthritis what their biggest daily challenge was, you may find that their answer might vary from what another person would say.
However, one thing that you may find fairly frequently amongst people who struggle with arthritis is the pain and discomfort that comes along with this condition. While many of us might take our mobility for granted, for those who do have arthritis, this is something that is constantly on their minds. Fortunately, one way that has been shown to help provide lasting relief from arthritis is a treatment method that can be found by soaking in a hot tub regularly.
The Known Benefits of Hot Tub Use
When many people think of treatment for arthritis, they may think of conventional medicine and recurrent trips to the doctor’s office. What one may not realize is that a safe and proven alternative to these other treatment options is hidden in their backyard! If you’re looking for a reliable means to help soothe away the painful inflammation associated with this joint condition, soaking in a hot tub regularly could be just what you need.
Your hot tub offers many benefits when it comes to arthritis relief. In fact, the use of water to help treat a myriad of health conditions is not a brand-new concept. Hydrotherapy is a well-documented and historic treatment method and traces its roots far back in time. For instance, the warm water of your spa has been shown to greatly improve circulation, allowing sore joints to find relief from aches and pains. Another important aspect of using a hot tub regularly hot tub is how the pulsating jets can also lend relief to the arthritis sufferer, giving them a chance to destress and unwind while they enjoy their hot tub time.
The jets in each Jacuzzi® Hot Tub are strategically placed with your health and wellness in mind. Each jet is installed so that it can target certain areas of the body that generally carry more stress and tension than others. These areas can include the neck, shoulders and upper back. An even flow of air and water is used to apply pressure to these areas, slowly and gradually easing tension and allowing for relief.
By taking that pressure off your joints using the buoyancy of the water, you can finally find a reprieve from the discomfort of arthritis. Sitting in your hot tub makes you feel light and buoyant, allowing you to enjoy weightlessness that can give you serious results against the pain associated with arthritis.
It’s also been demonstrated that gentle exercise can help improve flexibility, which is exactly what a hot tub can offer. For someone with arthritis, these comfortable and low-impact exercises can be completed from the comfort of their personal spa, allowing them to reap the health benefits of fitness – but without the pain of high-impact sports!
In addition to regularly enjoying time in your hot tub, you can also try a little bit of spa aromatherapy, as well. Aromatherapy depends on using scents to target certain receptors in your brain. Some may help encourage you to relax. Others can even target your pain receptors! Adding spa-friendly aromatherapy products to your soak can double down on these amazing health benefits, too!
