Knee pain caused by arthritis, injury or overuse is never fun. With swelling, stiffness and constant pain, relief is priority number one. When medications and over the counter drugs aren’t working, a few minutes in the hot tub may be a practical alternative. Here are three ways soaking in the hot tub can ease knee pain.
Buoyancy for Support
Immersion in hot tub water reduces body weight by as much as 90 percent. With less strain and pressure placed on the knees, it’s easy to stretch and relax without discomfort. A few soothing minutes of joint support makes facing the day easier.
Leg exercises strengthen quadriceps, a sure way to bring relief to chronic knee pain. Strengthening muscles lessens the impact placed on knees from walking and performing many daily activities. Exercise in the hot tub and the added benefit of heat loosens and relaxes muscles for better performance.
A few minutes of soaking in warm water relaxes muscles, increasing flexibility and improving range of motion. Stiff joints that before were difficult to move become loose, as heat and massage target pain for easier movement.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve It!
It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.
