How a hot tub can make you healthier
If your doctor has prescribed heat treatments for your back pain, why not invest in a hot tub and you can get your heat treatments in the comfort of your home? A heating pad or a heat treatment at a physical therapist’s office might be beneficial, but when you’re in the hot tub, you can reap the same benefits — without leaving home!
When you shop for a hot tub or spa, make sure you sit in one and try out the placement and type of jets to sure the one you get are placed where you need them. There are jets that are therapeutic and that might be just what your doctor orders.
One of the reasons a soak in a hot tub helps alleviate pain is because when the blood vessels are dilated there is a reduction in muscle spasms and that can help alleviate back pain. Also, when you have your own hot tub you can get a “treatment” every day rather than a few days a week at a doctor’s office. You also eliminate having to spend time in a car, which can aggravate the pain.
A study in a British journal found a “patient treated through hot tub therapy showed improvement in both mobility and also has a lack of back pain after utilizing the hot tub.” Another reason to invest in one, right?
