An estimated 50 million Americans are affected by some form of arthritis.
Although there are more than 100 different kinds of arthritis, most are characterized by inflammation of the joints which causes swelling, pain and stiffness, often resulting in loss of joint movement or function.
Many people affected by arthritis seek relief by soaking in the warm, soothing water of a hot tub. A hot tub can provide the warmth, massage and buoyancy needed to both relax and exercise joints and muscles in the convenience and comfort of a backyard.
For more information regarding arthritis and the health benefits of hot tubs, visit the Arthritis Foundation website at www.arthritis.org.
*The use of hot water or heat is recommended for many people with arthritis but not all. Consult with your physician.
