SUN RAY HOT TUBS HELP ARTHRITIS & CHRONIC PAIN
There are many and varied forms of arthritis. Medical Practitioners that specialize in arthritis know and recommend the hydrotherapeutic values of hot tubs to combat most of the arthritis diseases. According to a publication from The Arthritis Foundation, "regular sessions in a hot tub will help to keep your joints moving.
They also restore and preserve strength and flexibility, and protect your joints from further damage." A little known fact of the buoyancy of water in a hot tub is that it reduces body weight by approximately 90%, thereby helping to relieve pressure on joints and muscles.
There is also the fact that the warm water acts to warm up joints, decrease swelling, and make collagen tissue more stretchable and flexible. This allows better movement with less pain and a restored range of motion. Families who live with arthritis, all benefit from the soothing effects of hot water therapy – including kids.
