The Arthritis Society of Canada reports that over 4.6 Million Canadian Adults report having some form of Arthritis – That is 1-in-6 Canadians over the age of 15.
The three most common types of Arthritis are Osteoarthritis (wear & tear on the joints over time), Rheumatoid Arthritis (An Autoimmune disease that attacks the joints) & Psoriatic Arthritis (Inflammation of both skin & joints).
The Arthritis Society offers many suggestions on how to best manage symptoms of arthritis, including staying active, keeping a balanced diet, and avoiding excessive repetitive movements. They also suggest both cold and hot therapies, which is where a Sundance hot tub can help alleviate some of the pain and discomfort for those suffering from arthritis.
How Can a Sundance Hot Tub Help?
Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest forms of medicine, going back thousands of years. This type of therapy has stood the test of time for good reason, and Sundance Spas have evolved the art of Hydrotherapy to unprecedented levels of relaxation and comfort.
There are 3 basic elements of Hydrotherapy, and all 3 of them can help improve the quality of life for those who suffer from arthritis.
Soaking in warm water provides numerous health benefits. As we soak, the warm waters of a Sundance Spa stimulates the creation of endorphins, which are our body’s, natural pain killers, this will enable us to relax as our stress levels are reduced. Warm water therapy can also help improve blood circulation, boost our immune systems, and encourage detoxification as our body temperature rises. Sundance Hot Tubs are equipped with high-flow, energy-efficient heaters so that the warm water you desire is always ready for you.
The natural buoyancy of a S water supports around 90% of our body weight, which greatly reduces stress, strain, and pressure on our joints. This reduced pressure, along with the 360° support of joints that are submerged in hot water can alleviate much of the pain associated with arthritic joints.
Sundance Hot Tubs ergonomically designed seats and loungers provide the most comfortable underwater seating, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your hydro-massage for as long as you like.
Sundance Hot Tubs are equipped with a variety of patented Hydrotherapy jets that are designed and positioned to ease sore joints and muscles.
Exclusive to Sundance Spas, The Vortex Jet, with its Unique rifling action provides instant relief.
The Vortex jet provides a swirling, Swedish-style massage that is beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility, and easing tension.
Built without the use of any moving parts that can wear out over time, Vortex jets are featured on all 780, 880 & 980 Series Sundance Spas.
For a hot tub to be beneficial to those dealing with Arthritis, it has to be designed to be easily accessible and comfortable to sit in. Sundance Spas benefit from over 40 Years of hot tub innovation to maximize bather comfort.
All Sundance Spas have molded rails to help you get in and out of the tub effortlessly. Many spas in the 880 Series come complete with back-lit stainless steel handrails for maximum confidence and peace of mind when it comes to entering and exiting your spa.
For those whose mobility issues may cause concerns over the height of many hot tubs, Sundance has designed several models, such as the 680 Series Alicia & Prado, the 780 Series Dover & Montclair, the 880 Series Capri & Marin (shown below) and the 980 Series Kingston & Claremont that have a lower profile to increase safety and convenience, without sacrificing any of the features that set Sundance apart from the average hot tub.
