Englewood, Co (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
“The month of October is National Physical Therapy month and the right time to recognize and appreciate physical therapists and their assistants for the good work they have achieved over the years,” said Rich Hiner, president of International Hot Tub. “Physical impairment and functional limitation, whether chronic or temporary, can be challenging. It's important to highlight the benefits of physical therapy and raise awareness about how treatment can help lead to a healthier, happier lifestyle” continued Hiner.
Physical Therapy Defined - Physical therapy is a form of rehabilitative medicine that seeks to help people regain or improve their physical abilities. Whether from arthritis, a strained back or a sports injury, debilitating and consistent pain can limit mobility and make daily activities difficult or impossible. The right physical therapy can decrease pain, promote faster healing and optimize health and well-being. Through a combination of exercise, equipment and associated therapies, a licensed therapist works to strengthen muscles, improve flexibility and endurance which leads to improved mobility. Physical therapy is an effective strategy for a variety of different conditions, including injury, surgery and age related limitations.
Treatment Strategies - Patients experience treatment in different ways and it's important for a therapist to create a customized approach or program designed with the condition and the patient in mind. Some people respond very well to certain types of treatment while others may not. There are a variety of different strategies available including manual manipulation of muscle, stretching, fitness and strength exercise, electrical stimulation, hydrotherapy, ultrasound and more. Most treatment programs include several techniques or therapies used in conjunction to achieve the desired outcome.
Hot Tub Hydrotherapy - The healing power of water has been used for centuries to relieve aches and pains, promote healing and relax the body. Hot tub hydrotherapy is an effective approach to pain management that enhances physical therapy. It is based on three principles- heat, massage and buoyancy.
Heat increases blood circulation which promotes healing by helping the body get rid of metabolic waste and deliver important nutrients to damaged areas. Buoyancy eases pressure on the joints and muscles which makes it easier to relax. And high pressured jets stimulate muscles and reduce tension with targeted massage. The perfect solution for in between physical therapy sessions or for anytime pain relief, a hot tub is easy, convenient and very effective.
“In an effort to help educate the public on how hot tubs and hot water hydrotherapy can help improve health and well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 4 locations during the entire month,” said Jill Seng, marketing manager. “We want consumers to feel the benefits of a relaxing soak in a Hot Spring hot tub for themselves.”
“Since we expect a huge response to this offer, we encourage people to schedule their free 30-minute soak with us ahead of time by calling 303-296-7727 to reserve their time,” continued Seng. “That way we can have everything ready for a relaxed, private, no-pressure hot tub experience.”
