Vacaville, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2012
The Hot Tub Store, a new and used hot tub dealer with stores in Santa Rosa, Vacaville, Roseville, Folsom, and West Sacramento is participating in National Arthritis Awareness Month by educating the public and providing free hot tub spa test soaks in their energy efficient Hot Spring Spas.
For millions of Americans, the pain and discomfort of arthritis makes life difficult. From getting out of the car to bending over to pick up something off the floor, sore and achy joints make even the simplest activities unbearable. The Arthritis Foundation lists arthritis as one of the most prevalent chronic health problems and the nation's most common cause of disability.
“Arthritis affects men, women and children of all ages, making it an important goal to inform others on how to prevent and treat arthritis pain more effectively,” said Dan Friedman, vice president of The Hot Tub Store. “May is Arthritis Awareness Month and the perfect time to raise awareness through education and prevention strategies. With that in mind, we have provided three all natural ways to decrease arthritis pain.”
1 - Make Simple Lifestyle Changes - There is some validity to the expression “a body in motion stays in motion”. Regular exercise can significantly reduce arthritis pain by keeping joints flexible and improving mobility. This does not mean strenuous workouts. What it does mean is simple lifestyle changes to increase daily exercise.
For instance, take frequent breaks if sitting for long periods of time is a requirement. Taking short walks every twenty to thirty minutes keeps joints moving and decreases stiffness. Stretch arms and fingers periodically while using a keyboard to loosen joints. Learn to reduce pressure on affected areas in little doses and painful arthritis symptoms become less frequent.
2 - Maintain a Healthy Weight - Eating right is always a healthy choice, but for arthritis sufferers, there’s another reason to swap the donut for the veggies. Putting on even a few extra pounds can severely impact arthritis pain. Particularly for those with knee, back or hip pain, carrying extra weight can make joint pain much worse.
Joints and the surrounding muscles carry body weight every day. Keeping off unwanted pounds by eating fresh fruits and vegetables helps maintain a healthy weight while reducing the pressure on overworked, stressed joints.
3 - Soak in a Hot Tub - Nothing takes away the pain of achy, stiff joints faster than the heated, bubbling water of a hot tub. It’s called hydrotherapy and it’s been used for generations to relieve chronic joint pain common with arthritis. The three main components of the hot tub- heat, buoyancy and massage- work together to relax, revive and rejuvenate. Heat promotes healing of damaged tissue and increases circulation.
High powered jets are the perfect solution for massaging sore joints and can be directed precisely at the point of pain. And buoyancy created by the water takes the pressure off joints instantly decreasing pain. Consistent use even three times a week for twenty minutes can have dramatic effects, resulting in improved flexibility, mobility, and most importantly, decreased arthritis pain.
“We think this is a great opportunity to show consumers why hot tubs have become a great way to improve the overall quality of their lives. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations throughout the entire month,” said Friedman. “We want consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
