An aching back is nothing to take lightly. In fact, over one-half of all working Americans complains of back pain at some point in their lives. In addition, most back pain has no diagnostic cause such as an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis. But for some people, inexplicable back pain is quite crippling. What can be done to help this naturally? Jacuzzi’s provide many pain-relieving opportunities!
If you have constant back pain, you will likely find relief by soaking in hot tubs or Jacuzzi’s. The benefits of hydrotherapy, an alternative medicine technique date back to ancient times. In Greek and Roman societies, they found hot baths very therapeutic.
How do Jacuzzi’s work to help relieve pain?
Water in general makes you 90% buoyant, thereby taking the stress off your vertebrae. In fact, if you are one of the 7.6% of Americans who report low back pain lasting at least one year, you’ll surely find relief if you soak. As you feel the jets pulsate around you, your back will instantly feel relief. The longer you soak, the more relaxed you’ll get. After a while, you might even be able to move more freely and with less restraint as the heat of the water penetrates your body.
Also, your Jacuzzi can have jets positioned exactly where you want them. Pick spas hot tubs with jets specifically placed in the seats for your low back pain. For neck and upper back type stress and strain, you can always opt to get neck rests with jets included in them.
Some other benefits of a Jacuzzi
Jacuzzi’s offer the option of having a stereo system, relaxing music in your spas experience can really help relieve overall stress. Though this is certainly not a cure to a medical issue or a back injury, it can help if you are experiencing back pain due to daily life stressors. Many people hold stress in their shoulders, neck and back and relaxing after a long day in your Jacuzzi and listening to calming music can certainly allow your body the time and atmosphere to de-stress.
If your pain keeps you awake at night then Jacuzzi’s are a great option for you because they are shown to improve the quality of your sleep. The heat, the jets, the calming music can all put your body into a great state of relaxation making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep
