Southwest Spas and Southwest Spas and Pools, selling new and used spas and hot tubs, swim spas and lap pools serving the greater Scottsdale and Mesa Arizona area publishes 3 Ways to Beat Chronic Pain. “Pain is something that is hard to avoid.
People suffer from various aches and pains due to overwork, strain or injury all the time,” says Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools. September is pain awareness month; a time for people to think about how to manage the pain in their lives.
Here are three ways to beat chronic pain.
Create a Place to Care for Pain at Home – One of the best things people who deal with chronic pain can do is make a soothing place to relieve their pain at home. There are several things people can do to ease their pain, but one of the best is installing a hot tub in the yard. Portable spas fight pain on many fronts. The temperature-controlled heat keeps the water at the perfect temperature for as long as is needed without constant filling or adjustments.
The warmth from the water relaxes muscles and reduces swelling. Since many people who deal with chronic pain have muscle pain, this is critical in managing it. For those whose pain involves the joints, portable hot tubs also deliver soothing, luxurious relief by bringing fluids to the area that allow freer movement and the oxygenated blood aides in healing.
Learn About Pain Management – There are a lot of misconceptions about pain management, and some old-fashioned methods of dealing with pain can even be detrimental. For instance, people have been self-medicating their pain with alcohol for centuries, but consuming alcohol actually fights pain relief by blocking neural receptors in the brain and can be worse when interacting with various pain medications, either over-the-counter or prescribed.
Manage Expectation from Pain Relief – It is important for people to understand the limits of pain relief and know what to expect from each method. Some medications may completely relieve pain for as long as they stay in the system but may also prevent a person from doing much else at all.
Other methods, like hot water therapy, have lasting pain relief that does not impair function, but no matter what type of pain relief is used, it should be scheduled and maintained in order to reduce pain over time. The pain is not going to go away completely when it is caused by chronic disease.
To encourage local residents to check out the benefits of using a swim spa or hot tub to help improve their overall health and well-being, Southwest Spas is providing free test soaks all month. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call us ahead of time to reserve their spot.
