Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by sensitivity and pain in the joints, tendons, and muscles all over the body. The disorder is also accompanied by sleep issues, headache, fatigue, memory problems, and mood problems. These symptoms of Fibromyalgia are long term and affect the whole body, so you can see how Fibromyalgia might be fairly debilitating. So how is fibromyalgia related to hot tubs?
Hot tubs relieve much of the pain associated with Fibromyalgia, and many sufferers have claimed that hot tubs work miracles for their pain. Here is how it works:
- All of the muscle tightness and soreness is relieved by the hot water increasing circulation while relaxing the body. In addition, the hydrotherapy and massage action of the jets helps release any tension associated with the condition.
- The buoyancy of the water reduces any pressure placed on joints, tendons, and muscles due to either weight or gravity.
- Light activity and stretching in warm water or hot tubs can be beneficial to increasing strength and mobility while in an environment that minimizes pain that is usually associated with activity.
Hot tubs are sometimes even prescribed by doctors to help people who suffer quite badly from Fibromyalgia. It is difficult to know if the treatment will help you, so the best option would be to try a hot tub somewhere before investing in something so expensive. Gyms and community pools frequently have hot tubs you can try.
