How to Use a Hot Tub for Osteoarthritis Relief, Used Spas Waukesha
Do achy, painful joints stop you from enjoying life? Why let osteoarthritis slow you down when a few quiet minutes in the family spa can leave you feeling better in no time? Easy, convenient relief is available and it doesn’t need to involve medication. Ready to try something new?
Here’s how to use a hot tub for long lasting osteoarthritis relief.
Strengthening the muscles around injured joints is a proven way to reduce osteoarthritis pain. But movement can be difficult, even painful, causing many people to avoid physical activity all together. A hot tub can help. Water is buoyant, which provides a cushioned environment for protecting the joints. Three times a week, a quick strengthening session in the hot tub can strengthen muscles, leading to increased flexibility and improved range of motion.
Reduce Overall Stress
No one is immune to tension and anxiety. But, while stress isn’t directly related to osteoarthritis pain, elevated stress that goes unmanaged can heighten discomfort, triggering even more pain. Healthy stress management is a smart lifestyle choice, and a practical way to reduce osteoarthritis pain. With relaxing massage and heat to soothe, soaking in the hot tub is an easy way to keep the neck, shoulders and back loose and refreshed. Use the tub a few times a week and keep stress in check, while decreasing osteoarthritis symptoms.
Pain Free Sleep
Regular physical activity is an important part of ensuring joints stay flexible and limber during the day. But what happens at night, when it’s time for sleep? Osteoarthritis pain at bedtime makes getting a restful night sleep more challenging than ever. Luckily, soaking in warm, soothing water 30 minutes before bed helps ease the body into a comfortable, relaxed state. High heat feels great on the joints, but it also raises core body temperature. Get out of the tub and temperature drops quickly, prompting the brain to start the process of preparing for deep, comfortable sleep.
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.
