How Do Hot Tubs Help With Disabilities?
What do we mean by disabilities?
There are so many different types of disabilities we couldn’t possibly discuss them all, but one thing many have in common is that the sufferer is in a lot of pain, a lot of the time. Sadly this can be pain that has no end and can even go on for an entire lifetime. This can be following a traumatic event or an accident or arising from a medical ailment that falls under the ‘chronic’ umbrella meaning there is not cure. A common example is arthritis, which can strike at any age, although more common in older people as the wear and tear of life catches up with the joints.
So how can a hot tub benefit disabilities that involve chronic pain
Due to the heat created hot tubs often offer some temporary respite from the pain disability causes. This works well for conditions like arthritis. Arthritis itself is an inflammation of the joints and can be very painful with very little relief. The condition tends to be found in places of the body involved in movements, such as the legs or the spine. This means that people with arthritis can be struck with debilitating pain, and can find it hard to perform simple tasks on a daily basis.
The hot tub works by raising the temperature of the body to make the blood vessels dilate more and thus circulate on an increased level. The warm water also helps to ease the inflammation of the joints and promote a freer movement, which can be helpful for making stiffer joints more limber and also help worn muscles to rest. This forms the basis for something called hydrotherapy, which also allows you to build up muscle strength in a way which isn’t as painful as rigorous exercise. The sensation of the water helps to remove the pressures on the body and leave you feeling relaxed and in less pain, which will be a welcome relief for those who suffer from disabilities which leave them aching or in agony on a daily basis.
Overall, there are many advantages to hot tubs in Derby, and the hot tub itself can help to combat disabilities within people. Other conditions that cause chronic pain such as fibromyalgia and MS can also benefit from hot tub use, please just be sure to have other people around if you find getting in and out tricky.
