If you are one of the 46 million Americans affected by arthritis, soaking in your Hot Spring spa can help ease your pain. Joint inflammation from arthritis causes swelling, pain and stiffness, often resulting in the loss of joint movement or function. Immersion in warm water produces hydrostatic pressure on the body that results in reduced joint inflammation and increased mobility*. Spas give you the soothing warm water and buoyancy needed to release tension and improve your quality of life.
For even more relief, use the Arthritis Foundation’s hot tub tips to gently exercise and practice flexibility as you soak.
The use of hot water or heat is recommended for many people with arthritis but not all. Always consult your physician.
