Brookfield, WI (PRWEB) July 15, 2012
Wolf Pools and Spas, Southeastern Wisconsin’s premier spa and above–ground pool dealer is participating in Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month this July. “This is the perfect time to educate, inform, and share tips and strategies for controlling pain, reducing inflammation and improving the quality of life of a loved one,” said Michael Wolf, owner of Wolf Pools and Spas. “Here are three strategies for helping with the pain and discomfort of pediatric arthritis, making life a little more comfortable,” continued Wolf.
Consistent Exercise - Physical activity of any kind can be difficult with juvenile arthritis, and that’s exactly why it’s a good idea. Over time, exercise helps muscles and joints become more flexible, pain is decreased and daily activities become easier and less painful. There is no known cure for arthritis in children, but to avoid permanent, more serious complications, adding light exercise will have significant benefits. Most activities are safe, including many popular sports offered in school. Low impact aerobic activities like biking, swimming, even walking are great choices.
Maintain a Healthy Body Weight - Unfortunately, many children suffering from juvenile arthritis tend to have poor eating habits, making it difficult to keep little bodies nourished and strong. Make certain to provide plenty of opportunities for fresh vegetables, fruits and even calcium for strong bones and teeth. Whether from medications or inactivity, excess weight places more pressure on the bones and can lead to early osteoporosis. And a poor appetite can lead to excessive weight loss which is not ideal for keeping muscles strong. Offer a few healthy snacks and a solid meal filled with healthy proteins and a glass of whole milk.
Controlling Pain with a Hot Tub - One of the goals of treatment for juvenile arthritis is controlling pain. Nothing makes this easier than a hot tub. A hot tub has three properties that taken together relieve pain instantly, improve range of motion and increase mobility. Heated water relaxes, stiff, tight joints while massaging jets target the underlying tissue, decreasing inflammation and pain instantly. Plus, buoyancy created by the water is the perfect way to take pressure off joints. A quick soak in the hot tub after dinner will relax, refresh and prepare the mind and body for a restful, deep sleep- perfect for giving damaged tissues the chance to repair naturally.
Children suffering from juvenile arthritis depend on parents and caregivers to provide solutions. For easing pain, increasing mobility and improving quality of life, consider using regular exercise, a healthy diet and a dip in the hot tub to improve mood and make every day a little more comfortable.
“To help educate the public on how hydrotherapy can help ease improve your life, 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.”
