How Hot Tubs Help Chronic Pain

A hot tub is more than just hot water. It’s scientifically proven to improve your physical well-being. There are three factors at work: heat, massage, and buoyancy. Together, they create an unparalleled therapeutic experience for your whole body, that has proven extremely beneficial for chronic pain sufferers.

Hydrotherapy Benefits for Chronic Pain

Heat

Warm hot tub water raises your body’s temperature, causing blood vessels to dilate and increasing your circulation. What does that mean for pain sufferers? You might not realize it, but heat therapy helps your boy’s cells eliminate damaging wastes, decreases inflammation, and promotes the release of endorphins.

Buoyancy

You might feel a little bit lighter as you soak in a hot tub, but did you know that the water actually reduces your body’s weight by 85% – 90% relieving pressure on your joints, ligaments, and muscles. By reducing stress on your body, buoyancy reduces stiffness and promotes easier, pain-free movement and an improved range of motion. This effect is particularly useful in treating arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Massage

Hot tub jets deliver streams of water to various parts of your body. Together, they target and relax tight muscles. The effects of consistent use include stronger flexibility, increased circulation, enhanced digestive processes, and a strengthening of your immune system.

 

 

Remember, consistency is key!  Try for a 20 minute soak every night to maintain the health benefits of your hot tub. Increase the duration of your standard soaking time after activities that exert the muscles, such as a strenuous workout or long periods of driving. And if you’re short on time, shorten the duration of your soak (maybe to 10-15 minutes), but make it a priority to soak regularly.
