Burnsville, MN (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
October is National Physical Therapy month and the perfect time to highlight the essential role physical therapists play in improving the quality of life for millions of people.
“Physical therapy strategies are an important part of an ongoing effort to help people stay healthy by preventing injury, managing pain, increasing mobility and reducing the need for prescription drugs or surgery down the road,” said Dan Eppard the General Manager of Hot Spring Spas of Minnesota and Iowa. “Raising awareness about the benefits of physical therapy will help pain sufferers and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle,” continued Eppard.
The Importance of Physical Therapy - An important part of the health care community, physical therapy provides the tools for many people to live a happy, pain free life. Through effective pain management and increased mobility, a physical therapist can improve the quality of life for someone who may otherwise be suffering. For people trying to cope with a debilitating condition, therapy reduces pain, but also helps avoid loss of mobility and functionality by maintaining muscle strength and flexibility. Low back pain, muscle and joint pain, fibromyalgia, even neuropathic pain can be improved with treatment. It's important to educate and inform the public about the benefits of physical therapy and its role in promoting a healthy lifestyle and improving quality of life.
Mobility is the Key to Aging Happily - Most physically active people over the age of 45 feel aches and pains. Whether it's from osteoarthritis or an old sports injury, with age, the ability to move freely and easily becomes more difficult, restricted and painful. Unfortunately, pain makes any activity uncomfortable, even simple, daily tasks. Maintaining full mobility is the key to aging happily and a critical part of living pain free. Taking steps now to manage pain and prevent loss of mobility will help support a healthy, active lifestyle for years to come. Physical therapy treatment aims to help maintain mobility by promoting an active, injury free lifestyle.
Enhancing Physical Therapy With Hot Tub Use - Adding hot tub hydrotherapy to a regular physical therapy program enhances overall pain management by keeping muscles and joints relaxed and increasing range of motion. Heat, massage and buoyancy created by a hot tub work together to loosen stiff muscles and joints- making physical therapy more effective. And between sessions or when a physical therapist isn't available, using a hot tub to stay loose, relaxed and pain free is an easy and effective alternative. An all natural and safe method of pain relief, a hot tub used in the evenings can also help prepare the body for a pain-free, deep sleep.
“To help inform women how hydrotherapy can help improve overall health and well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 5 locations during the entire month,” commented Eppard. “We want to encourage local consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
