Stiff Joints in Cold Weather Can Benefit From a Hot Tub

Most people would agree that a hot tub is a great way to unwind at the end of a long day. But a hot tub offers so much more than relaxation. In fact, for those who suffer from stiff joints, it can provide many health benefits. With winter approaching, many people will be searching for relief from their joint pain. We’ll show you how a hot tub helps stiff joints in cold weather.

How a Hot Tub Helps Increase Circulation

Those who suffer from stiff joints often lead a more sedentary lifestyle due to pain. Unfortunately, this lack of mobility can also lead to a decrease in circulation and inflamed joints. A hot tub can offer relief as the jets and heat work to increase circulation throughout the body. Often referred to as hydrotherapy, this not only improves flexibility and mobility, it also reduces inflammation in joints. The great news is that the effects of hydrotherapy are known to last for several hours after you finish soaking in your hot tub. 

Help Stiff Joints by Adding Movement 

We all know that regular exercise is important for our health. But exercise can be limited by your ability to move because of pain or joint stiffness. A hot tub can help stiff joints by adding movement to your exercise routine. We’re all familiar with the weightless feeling experienced in the water. A hot tub allows you to move more easily by relieving the pressure on aching joints. As the water supports your body weight, you will find it easier to move and stretch, alleviating pain.

A Hot Tub Helps Massage Stiff Joints 

Massage therapy has long been noted as an effective way to relieve pain. Hot tub owners can find relief without a trip to the spa. The pulsating jets in your hot tub target stiff joints and provide relief from pain and soreness. Regular jet massages in your hot tub can not only help relieve pain but also improve flexibility.

Allows for Better Rest and Sleep

Many people who suffer from joint stiffness or pain struggle with getting a good night’s sleep. Relaxing in your hot tub an hour before bed can help you fall asleep faster and have a more restful sleep. It’s been found that raising and then lowering your body temperature helps you fall asleep more quickly. Even a short soak in your hot tub will effectively raise your body temperature. Once you exit the hot tub and your body temperature drops, it promotes relaxation, which allows you to fall into a deeper sleep.
