Can a hot tub treat arthritis?
A study by Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases found that “hydrotherapy is often recommended to patients with arthritis as water provides a range of benefits, including the reduction of edema, pain relief, and reduced loading on damaged arthritic joints.” By soaking in warm water, the heat helps reduce the force of gravity which can place additional stress on joints, decrease swelling, and increase blood circulation.
