Arthritis affects over 40 million people and causes pain, general stiffness, and for some, swelling and inflammation of the joints. Treatment by a physician may focus on controlling pain, minimizing degeneration or optimizing a treatment plan for maximum benefits. Effective treatment often combines medicine with exercise and relaxation techniques. Hot tubs have been proven to be an important part of arthritis treatment plans.
Stress is not necessarily good or bad. Some stress is a natural part of life, and our bodies are equipped to deal with it. When a situation we perceive as stressful arises, our bodies release hormones, such as adrenaline, that increase our heart rates and metabolism, raise blood sugar levels, and tense our muscles. There are three factors at work in a spa which will reduce stress: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create an experience that is both relaxing and rejuvenating. Immersion in hot water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, resulting in increased circulation. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by approximately 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles and creating the relaxing sensation of weightlessness.
Diabetes - Many people develop Type 2 diabetes, also referred to as Adult Onset Diabetes. Watching our weight and exercising are essential to managing Type 2 diabetes. There are many ways that managing diabetes can be improved through hydrotherapy in a ROTOSPA hot tub.
Lower back pain is the number 2 reason in Canada that people visit the doctor after colds and the flu. Thousands of people suffer needlessly from lower back pain. A study published in the British Journal of Rheumatology in 2005 provided evidence that hot tub therapy has short and long term benefits for people with lower back pain. Researchers in France published a study in the Journal of Rheumatology in which improvement in health status (measured in back flexibility and pain duration and intensity) of the spa treatment group far exceeded that of the medication-only group after three weeks of consistent spa therapy. The use of anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics also decreased in the spa treatment group. This research information was published in the March-April 2005 issue of Arthritis Today.
Pain Therapy - The massaging action of a spa is created by a mixture of warm water and air pumping through jet nozzles. This "energized" stream of water relaxes tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers. Of course, a ROTOSPA hot tub offers much more than just a good hydro massage. Soaking in hot, swirling water leaves you feeling mentally and emotionally relaxed as well. Fifteen minutes in the morning can give you a fresh start and a soak before bedtime can make it easier to drift into a deep, restful sleep. A ROTOSPA hot tub is something you'll want to experience every day.
