Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
This October, health care practitioners and care givers are excited to celebrate National Physical Therapy Month. In appreciation of all the hard work and dedicated help therapists contribute, now is the perfect time to highlight the important role physical therapy plays in improving the lives of those suffering from chronic musculoskeletal or neuropathic pain. Oregon Hot Tub, a HotSpring Spas dealer selling new and used hot tubs with stores in Portland and surrounding areas like Beaverton and Bend, OR has decided to do participate in this very worthy event.
“Raising awareness and informing others of the benefits of physical therapy is an important goal and one that can improve the lives of patients and caregivers for years to come,” said Sue Rogers, president of Oregon Hot Tub. “From pain management to increased mobility, therapy eases suffering, strengthens muscles and makes it easier to move, here are three things that people may want to,” continued Rogers.
How Physical Therapy Helps - Muscle and joint pain from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia or other chronic conditions can be debilitating and physical therapy can help. Treatment is different for everyone, customized to suit the needs of each person. A consistent program with a skilled therapist can make movement easier and less painful by improving strength, endurance, stability and flexibility. Typically, physical therapy combines a variety of techniques including massage, muscle manipulation, cold laser therapy and more. As an effective, all natural and safe strategy for pain management, physical therapy improves mobility and promotes a healthy lifestyle.
Avoiding Prescription Medications and Surgery - Physical therapy typically focuses on not only pain management, but also, injury prevention, healing and restoring the ability to move. For those suffering with chronic pain, the right treatment can reduce the possibility of having to rely on prescription drugs or surgery for relief. In fact, with improved mobility, restored movement and increased muscular strength, physical therapy may even prevent long term disability. Mobility is the key to aging well and combined with a consistent physical therapy program, taking steps to stay physically active and healthy can eliminate the need for prescription drugs or surgery.
Hot Tub Hydrotherapy - Using a hot tub is an easy way to enhance a physical therapy program. Hot tub hydrotherapy- heat, massage and buoyancy- has been used for centuries to alleviate pain and discomfort, relax muscles and promote health and well-being. For chronic pain relief, a hot tub is ideal, providing the right combination of relaxation and massage to increase flexibility, increase range of motion and soothe sore, stiff muscles and joints. The perfect solution for emergency situations when physical therapy is unavailable, a hot tub provides instant relief.
“To encourage local residents to check out the benefits of soaking in a hot tub to help improve their overall health and well-being, Oregon Hot Tub is providing free test soaks at all their showrooms. We do recommend however that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call us ahead of time to reserve their spot,” commented Dave Doornink, Oregon Hot Tub’s Marketing Director.
