How Hot Tubs Can Increase Mobility
As we age, our bodies lose mobility. It’s just a fact of life! Stiff bodies are exasperated if your job has you sitting at a desk much of the day.
We all have felt stiff joints and achy necks and backs when we wake up.
And while we can’t stop the hands of time and don’t advocate quitting your job, there are ways to keep our bodies limber and feeling younger.
Increase your everyday mobility
It’s a lot easier than you think when you have a hot tub!
Soaking in a hot tub provides a multitude of different physical benefits. A daily soak in one of our hot tubs will leave you feeling loose and relaxed. Let’s explore some of the great ways a hot tub can make you more mobile than ever.
Reduce Stiffness and Soreness After a Hard Workout
Everyone experiences being stiff and sore throughout their life.
Have you ever felt sore or stiff after strenuous work or exercise? This is because our muscles need downtime to recuperate and relax after an intense workout.
Soaking in warm water helps your blood vessels expand. This dilation helps increase blood flow to the body muscles and skin, helping to prevent soreness and stiffness.
Increase Circulation to Ease Arthritis Pain
Millions of Americans have arthritis and constantly search for something to ease their pain.
When people with arthritis can’t find relief, they often become inactive because of the pain, decreasing circulation and increasing inflammation.
Hydrotherapy is one of the best methods to alleviate these problems. The heat of the hot tub helps increase circulation in the body. In addition, hydrotherapy has been shown to reduce inflammation and increase a person’s overall mobility.
We all know the value of an established exercise habit. But stiff joints and arthritis pain can make us hesitant to keep our routine going.
We’ve got good news for you – a hot tub can help by reducing the weight on your joints, thus allowing more movement with less pain. In addition, the buoyancy of the water makes you feel light, which increases free movement and relieves pressure on your joints.
Water can support up to 90 percent of a person’s body weight. Stretching in the water can also loosen stiff joints and relieve pain.
Get Back the Mobility You Miss
Don’t let stiff joints or nagging arthritis pain keep you from doing the things you love like exercise, walking your dog, playing with your grandkids, or working in the yard.
A hot tub can help you get your life and movement back.
