Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 20, 2012
To help treat and manage arthritis as well as increase awareness of its affects, Capital Hot Tub (Formerly named Hot Spring Spa of Washington) is proudly participating in National Arthritis Awareness Month. “Arthritis is a chronic condition affecting millions of men, women and children worldwide. Whether mild or severe, arthritis pain is at best uncomfortable and inconvenient and at worst, debilitating or disabling,” said Joe Mahoney, president of Capital Hot Tub.
“While every condition is different, there are a few natural ways to ease discomfort,” continued Mahoney. “Through proper diet, exercise and minor changes in daily routine, joints can be protected. Rest, relaxation and regular use of a hot tub decrease pain and make living with arthritis a little more comfortable. Here are a few natural methods for reducing pain. Hopefully with education, dedication and a little effort, arthritis pain worldwide can be controlled.”
1 - Joint Protection - The pain of arthritis is caused from inflammation of the joints. Whether through overuse, normal wear and tear of cartilage or an injury, joints are inflamed resulting in pain. Taking steps to protect them is a first step in alleviating discomfort and reducing further damage. Successfully protecting the joints involves rearranging a few common tasks and rethinking daily activities. Taking adequate breaks and giving the body the chance to rest frequently is an easy way to reduce pressure and protect joints.
2 - Maintain a Healthy Weight and Exercise - Yes, it’s true- weight loss and eating right seem like the answer to every ailment. But for arthritis relief, it’s a sure thing and here’s why. An overweight body must overcompensate by placing extra stress and pressure on the joints. Extra weight leaves tired and stiff joints overstressed, causing collagen to breakdown more quickly.
Eating a healthy diet benefits the body and mind by elevating mood, decreasing fatigue and most importantly, protecting the heart, muscles and joints from stress. Daily exercise even in little doses is beneficial and can significantly reduce joint inflammation and stress.
3 - Consider the Hot Tub - What’s more relaxing than a nice, calming dip in the hot tub? Absolutely nothing and for relieving arthritis pain, the warm, massaging water of a hot tub can’t be beat. Soaking in the water is therapeutic, decreasing pain from overworked muscles and joints instantly. The buoyancy created by the water is the perfect way to take pressure off overworked joints. Plus, massaging jets can be positioned to target areas where pain is most severe. A twenty minute soak just a few nights a week before bed can significantly reduce joint discomfort while paving the way for a restful night’s sleep.
“We think National Arthritis Awareness Month is a great time to help educate the public on how warm water hydrotherapy can help improve your overall health and well-being,” said Patty Mahoney. “That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 2 locations during the entire month. We suggest that consumers just call us ahead of time to schedule their free 30-minute soak so they can check out the benefits for themselves.”
