Flexibility may be the key to improved health. In fact, stretching before, during and after physical activity is often more important than exercise for maintaining optimal health. Doctors and health care practitioners agree that flexibility is a primary component of keeping the body fit and “able”, serving as the third in line next to cardiovascular conditioning and strength training. Did you know that regular use of a hot tub can improve flexibility and overall health naturally? Here’s how:
Prevent Injury or Illness – Regular stretching can actually prevent injury and illness, making it less likely that you will develop arthritis or more serious health conditions. That explains why athletes always stretch prior to and after performing. However, if traditional stretching is uncomfortable, there is some good news because it’s much easier in a hot tub. Water actually supports muscles and joints, and it’s that buoyancy that makes it easier to extend, without feeling pull or strain. Besides, heat from the hot tub warms the muscles, readying them for a long, pain-free stretch.
Increase Range of Motion and Mobility – If you already suffer with arthritis or another type of joint condition, you may be familiar with the pain and disability of limited range of motion. Joint pain can be simple, as in difficulty performing everyday tasks like dressing or opening a bottle, or complex and completely debilitating. Using a hot tub a few times a week is an excellent solution for increasing flexibility leading to increased range of motion and mobility. Warm water relaxes the muscles and supports movement, alleviating current pain and depressing future pain.
Lengthen Muscles to Improve Strength – Strong muscles protect the joints from injury and keeping them healthy can delay the natural decrease in muscle mass that occurs with age. Strength training can improve low back pain, decrease osteoporosis and help us function better as we age. Improving muscular strength and endurance can be achieved in a variety of ways, but is enhanced by long, flexible muscles. A hot tub is the perfect environment for lengthening the muscles to maximize strength training.
A dip in the hot tub is always a relaxing, soothing experience. However, stretching in the warm water on a regular basis improves flexibility over time, leading to healthy, long and limber muscles and joints. The perfect solution for staving off injury and illness, increasing range of motion and improving strength, using a hot tub to promote flexibility is a smart, health-savvy way to enjoy your investment and realize significant benefits beyond rest and relaxation.
