Arthritis is a very common form of joint pain and inflammation. It is most commonly known to affect the elderly, but it is also present among many young people who suffer from swollen, painful joints.
There are different types of arthritis, but regardless of the type, people continue to search for relief. Fortunately, studies show that soaking in a Hot Tub can increase function and movement in joints and reduce the side effects of Arthritis.
Hot tub soaking is a natural remedy for arthritis.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, if you are looking for a natural way to get your joints moving in the morning then you should try an “age-old remedy that has stood the test of time: heat.”
“When you have arthritis, a warm [hot tub] is the ideal place to strengthen your muscles and increase your flexibility. The water will reduce the force of gravity compressing the joint and offer 360-degree support for sore limbs that have limited range of motion. Reap the rewards. Flexibility and relief last long after you towel off. Studies show that patients with arthritis and fibromyalgia who participated in warm water exercise programs two or three times a week could move around better and had as much as 40 percent less pain. Don’t overdo it. Maximum benefit is reached after about 20 minutes in a warm pool or bathtub. Make sure you drink water before and after your dip.”
