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 Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month by educating the public and providing free hot tub spa test soaks in their 5 Northern California showrooms.
“Pediatric arthritis causes severe pain and can lead to more serious health complications if left untreated,” said Dan Friedman, vice president of The Hot Tub Store. “Because there is no known cure for the disease, treatment normally focuses on controlling pain and avoiding joint damage. July is the perfect time to raise awareness through education and show parents and caretakers how a few simple lifestyle changes will help cope with disease. We have provided three easy ways men can improve their health,” continued Friedman.
Exercise It can be extremely difficult to participate in physical activity with arthritis and that is exactly why incorporating regular exercise into a daily routine is so critical. Low impact activity over time improves flexibility, reduces inflammation and can improve range of motion. Without exercise, everyday activities like dressing, eating even walking can be painful. Swimming, walking and biking are great aerobic activities that provide a good range of motion without putting too much pressure on the joints. Over time, flexibility and increased range of motion can make common activities like using utensils, holding a pencil, even eating easier and less painful.
Maintain a Healthy Diet Eating a well-balanced, healthy diet of proteins, fruits and vegetables is even more important for a child suffering from juvenile arthritis. Medications and inactivity can lead to weight gain, placing more pressure on already damaged joints. As a result, premature bone damage can be common. Keeping a good supply of calcium in the diet along with healthy low fat options ensures bones stay strong and weight maintained. And for children who are having difficulty eating, try to pack as many nutrients into one meal as possible and always offer plenty of whole milk.
Control Pain with a Hot Tub Another simple activity that helps control pain is the hot tub. Soaking in the warm water for even a few minutes relaxes stiff, achy joints, improves mobility and eases pain and discomfort. Massaging jets increase blood circulation, delivering more oxygen to affected areas. And the buoyancy created by the water takes all pressure off the joints instantly. A hot tub is an easy, cost effective and convenient way to control pain that can be used any time day or night, year round. Plus, an after dinner soak prepares the mind and body for a peaceful, deep sleep, creating an all-natural, pain free alternative to medications.
“We think this is a great opportunity to show parent and children 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 residents to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
