Hot Springs DC - Capital Hot Tubs, Rockville, MD Hot Spring Spas dealer (Formerly named Hot Spring Spa of Washington) with stores in Fairfax, VA and Clarksburg, MD is supporting Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month by providing free spa test soaks in all their locations.
Juvenile arthritis (JA) is an umbrella term used to describe the many autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that can develop in children ages 16 and younger. According to the Arthritis Foundation, juvenile arthritis is one of the most common diseases in children, with almost 300,000 in the United States diagnosed with the debilitating illness.
“Many children suffer from this very painful disease longer than they have to because arthritis is usually thought of a problem only for older adults,” said Joe Mahoney, president of Capital Hot Tub. “Parents and other caregivers should be aware of the symptoms and what to look for because JA can have serious, even life-threatening impact on a younger children.
"When joint pain, swelling or stiffness occurs in one or more joints for at least six weeks, it may be an early signal of a serious, inflammatory rheumatic disease that requires immediate medical treatment to prevent permanent joint damage," says Arthritis Foundation vice president of Public Health, Dr. Patience White.
According to Patty Mahoney, co-owner, “many people including children affected by arthritis seek relief by soaking in the warm, soothing water of a hot tub or portable spa. A portable hot tub can provide the warmth, massage and buoyancy needed to both relax and exercise joints and muscles in the comfort of your own backyard.” In addition, , the buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by almost 90% giving the it a well-deserved break from stiff and sore joints and muscles,” continued Mahoney.
“We think Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month is a great time to help educate the public on how effective warm water hydrotherapy can be in relieving the symptoms of JA. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations during the entire month,” said Patty Mahoney. “We obviously recommend that parents speak to their doctors first before deciding on how to treat JA, but if your doctor approves of hydrotherapy, we suggest that parents just call us ahead of time to schedule their free 30-minute soak so they can check out the benefits for themselves.”
