In the United States, about 53.2 million adults have been diagnosed with arthritis by doctors. This disease can cause pain, general stiffness, and swelling and inflammation of the joints. To treat arthritis, physicians typically focus on controlling pain and minimizing degeneration. For more effective results, medication is combined with exercise and relaxation techniques.

A Softub spa is an ideal solution for individuals suffering from chronic pain caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia and other muscle-related problems. Choose products from Evergreen Softub and Sauna, the largest distributor of Softubs in the United States, to reduce your discomfort today.

Health Advantages of Softubs

With a Softub, you can benefit from:

Pain Management

People with arthritis experience pain from sore and stiff joints. Worry, anxiety and the stress of chronic soreness can magnify the pain. Soaking in warm water helps relieve muscle pain and joint stiffness in many ways, such as:

  • Easing muscle strain: Buoyancy from the water eases the strain on the muscles and joints.
  • Improving blood circulation: Warm water relaxes muscles that have become stiff from protecting sore joints, letting more blood flow.
  • Releasing endorphins: Soaking helps release endorphins, which are the body's natural relaxants and pain relievers.
  • Loosening knots and tension: The Softub spa jet's gentle massage feature loosens knots from constant tension.

Water Exercise

The Arthritis Foundation recommends exercising in warm water to relieve joint pain, ideally with temperatures between 83 and 90 degrees. Water helps support the body, reducing the stress on your hips, knees, feet and spine.

Range of Motion Exercise

Range of motion exercise is a way to maintain and improve flexibility. Performing these exercises in a Softub can increase their effectiveness. The warm water relaxes the muscles, aiding freedom of motion, while the buoyancy of the water relieves stress on the joints. The jets massage stiff muscles, allowing you to extend them in a fuller range.

Strength Exercise

Strength exercise is often recommended if you have arthritis because strong muscles help support your joints. A 15-minute warm-up in a Softub spa prior to exercising is an effective way to loosen up stiff muscles and reduce the risk of injuries. While exercising, lactic acid builds up in the muscles. This buildup causes that sore and tired feeling after exercising. Using the Softub spa after exercise increases blood flow to your muscles, replenishing nutrients and removing lactic acid much faster.

Improved Sleep

A good night’s sleep is often difficult for people suffering from arthritis. Chronic pain can deprive a person of truly restful sleep. Many therapists recommend a warm soak before bed as an excellent aid to a deep slumber. If you are considering a Softub spa as part of doctor-recommended therapy, some or all expenses may be medically tax deductible.
