Montgomery Village, MD (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
Capital Hot Tub (Formerly named Hot Spring Spa of Washington) is proudly participating in Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. “July marks the beginning of Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month, a time dedicated to reaching out to children and families affected by the disease,” said Joe Mahoney, president of Capital Hot Tubs. “This month is designed to inform and educate, helping parents and caregivers find workable solutions. Here are three easy lifestyle changes that can help control pain and improve the quality of life of a loved one,” continued Mahoney.
Regular Exercise - While it may be uncomfortable at first, adding regular exercise to a daily routine will decrease pain, improve strength and increase flexibility. Consistent exercise over time will result in reduced stiffness and greater mobility, making daily activities easier and less painful. From using utensils or brushing teeth to simply walking, staying active makes every day activities possible. Finding an activity that is not only enjoyable but also provides a good range of motion is critical. Swimming, biking, even family walks provide significant benefits over time.
Maintain a Healthy Body Weight - For many children suffering from juvenile arthritis; keeping weight off or putting weight on can be a challenge. Inactivity, as well as medications makes it difficult to have an appetite and often, children simply do not want to eat. It’s critical to get a steady supply of healthy fruits and vegetables as well as sufficient calcium into the diet to keep the body and bones strong. For children who gain weight, excess pressure on the bones can lead to early osteoporosis and makes walking and other types of movement even more painful.
Control Pain with a Hot Tub - One of the easiest, most effective ways to control pain associated with juvenile arthritis is to soak in a hot tub. Because there is no cure for the disease, it’s even more important to learn how to manage pain, making a hot tub an ideal permanent solution. Warm water from the hot tub relaxes and soothes achy, stiff joints while massaging jets target the affected areas, reducing inflammation. Pain is decreased instantly and with consistent use, range of motion and mobility increase. A hot tub is a convenient, inexpensive way to bring instant relief and can be used anytime, year round.
For parents and caregivers of children with juvenile arthritis, simple lifestyle changes can make a significant difference. Maintaining a healthy body weight through diet and exercise and soaking in the hot tub can help more effectively improve joint mobility and control pain resulting in improved quality of life.
“We think Juvenile 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.”
