New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) October 26, 2012
Wolf Pools and Spas, Southeastern Wisconsin’s premier spa and above-ground pool dealer has published a guide to educate the public on the benefits of using physical therapy to improve over health and well-being. “Physical therapy is a well-respected and important part of the health care community and a valuable option for those suffering with debilitating pain,” said Michael Wolf, owner of Wolf Pools and Spas. “Treatment helps people with a variety of conditions, from back and neck pain, arthritis, sports injuries and more get back to a healthy lifestyle,” continued Wolf. Here are three things to consider…
The Goal of Physical Therapy - Whether it's from a sports injury, a recent surgery or age, living with pain is difficult. In many cases, debilitating pain limits mobility, making daily activities like dressing, walking, and cooking a challenge. Physical therapy aims to improve mobility and decrease pain, making life easier. By increasing strength, flexibility and endurance, patients can move pain free with restored function.
As a result, people experience improved quality of life and are making important strides towards optimized health and happiness. Physical therapy is an important part of recovery for a variety of different conditions, working to restore movement and function to pre-injury, pre-surgery, even pre-disability levels.
Treatment Strategies - Each patient is different with unique needs and a skilled physical therapist customizes a treatment plan to fit the specific needs of the condition and the patient. As a rule, treatment varies from person to person depending on what combination delivers the best outcome. While there are differences, the underlying goals are the same with improved strength, flexibility and restored function as a primary result. People respond to different types of therapies in a variety of ways and in most cases, several techniques are used. Treatment can include manual muscle manipulation, cold laser therapy, ultrasound, strength exercises, aerobic activity and more.
Hot Tub Hydrotherapy for Pain Management - In addition to physical therapy, hydrotherapy can provide patients immediate pain relief. As a complementary strategy to physical therapy, a hot tub promotes healing, maintains loose, flexible muscles and joints and eliminates pain. Hydrotherapy- heat, massage and buoyancy- work together to create the ideal environment for relaxation and comfort.
Sitting in the heated water increases blood circulation which speeds delivery of oxygen and nutrients to affected areas. In addition, targeted massage from jets direct high powered water to penetrate deep beneath the skin for instant relief. As an added benefit, a hot tub used in the morning can reduce stiffness and pain, resulting from lack of use throughout the night.
“To help educate the public on how hot tubs and hot water hydrotherapy can help improve overall health, Wolf Pools and Spas will provide free hot tub test soaks during the entire month,” commented Wolf. “We want to encourage local residents to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
