Using Your Hot Tub for Pain Relief
- Posted on Apr 21, 2018
If you suffer from chronic pain, you understand how difficult everyday living can be. Pain can limit your ability to live life to its fullest, especially if you suffer from knee, back, and joint pain. Even relaxing can be difficult. Fortunately, there is a way to help reduce the severity of your pain: hot tub hydrotherapy. The benefits of hydrotherapy are as numerous as they are effective, and the right hot tub can make all the difference. Here are just some of the ways a hot tub from Haven Spa Pool Hearth can provide invaluable relief from chronic pain.
Treatment from Diseases and Pain
Many studies have been conducted on spa techniques including hot tub hydrotherapy in the temporary relief from pain and symptoms of ailments such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and the aches and pains of strenuous exercise. According to one such study, the benefits come from a combination of buoyancy, immersion, resistance, and temperature. By raising the pressure and temperature applied to skin, muscle spasms are reduced and the body’s natural pain threshold is increased. Choosing the right hot tub from Haven Spa Pool Hearth can give you these benefits not as an occasional luxury but as an everyday practice.
Tips to Utilizing Your Hot Tub
Take every advantage to reduce your everyday chronic pain with these following steps:
- Pick the right hot tub for your needs. Haven Spa Pool Hearth offers a wide selection of hot tubs and spas with different seating arrangements and massaging water jets to give you full-body comfort.
- Choose a comfortable temperature and stay safe while using your hot tub. It is recommended that spa water not exceed 104° F. Start at a lower temperature and adjust as necessary.
- 20 minutes is a good period of time for hydrotherapy. Be aware that soaking for long periods of time can cause sweating and dehydration.
- Before considering hydrotherapy for chronic pain reduction, consult your doctor as certain conditions such as circulatory problems or heart disease can make hot tubs more dangerous to use regularly.
