Get Relief From The Symptoms Of Arthritis With A Sundance Hot Tub

The Word Arthritis means “Joint Inflammation”. The name is taken from the Greek words “Arthro” (Joint) & “Itis” (Inflammation). The term is used to describe over 100 Rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues that surround the joint, and other connective tissues. 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 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.

Common Arthritis joint symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness, and a decreased range of motion. Such symptoms can be very uncomfortable and cause deep, aching pain.

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 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 Hot Tubs 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 our Sundance Hot Tubs stimulate the creation of endorphins, which are our bodies 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.


The natural buoyancy of a Hot Tubs water supports around 90% of our body weight, which greatly reduces the 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 are equipped with a variety of patented Hydrotherapy Jets that are  designed and positioned to ease sore joints  and  muscles.

  For a Hot Tub to be beneficial to those dealing with Arthritis, it has to be designed in such a  way as to be easily accessible and  comfortable to   sit in. Sundance Hot Tubs benefit from over  36 Years of Hot Tub innovation to maximize bather comfort.
