Hot Tub Exercises for Arthritis Relief

Moist heat is known to safely and effectively relieve arthritis pain and stiffness, and that is exactly the sort of heat a hot tub provides. Immersing yourself in the water will relieve some of the pain and make starting exercise easier. The water will help support you, and its resistance to your movements will help you build strength. The combination of pain relief and buoyancy can make hot tub exercises a pleasant way to start or end your day.

But before jumping into a purchase from a hot tub expo, fair, or blow-out sale, make sure the spa you’re considering is really worth the pricetag—even at a discount.
