rheumatoid arthritis - using a jacuzzi

Has anyone found that sitting in a jacuzzi with warm to hot water on a daily basis help to relieve pain?

I have heard of this, not ever done it, but quite a few people have told me that daily use of a jacuzzi really helps. Ronnie

Re: rheumatoid arthritis - using a jacuzzi

I'm salivating just thinking about it.... LOL
I would LOVE to be able to do that and I'm sure it would definetly work.
any type of heat works. I use a heating pad on my spine when it gets bad and it relieves some of the pain. not all of it though.
plus they use heat in physical therapy before you begin your exercise.
it really really helps.
good luck to you if you find a jacuzzi to use. wish it was me!

Re: rheumatoid arthritis - using a jacuzzi

I just bought a used hot tub in March and have used it every day since. It does help the pain and if I use it before bed I sleep much better.

I very carefully searched nearby city and state craigslist and found a used hot tub for $300.00.

We had to travel a ways to get it but it was worth it.

I love mine and it helps with both the relaxation and prepping for excercise. Love it, well worth the money.

Re: rheumatoid arthritis - using a jacuzzi

Therapeutic massage is helpful too. I found that just by having my husband perform a deep massage on my entire body, limbs, arms, feet, everywhere, that immediatly afterwards, I felt relief from being all bound up muscle and connective tissue wise.
it's truly amazing.
My rheumy dr. wanted this performed on me when she referred me for physical therapy but the facility I went to, does not perform this method of therapy. it's a shame because I found it really really works.
it gets the lymphatic system moving which is so important for our organs and body to get the necessary oxygen and blood flow.
I know I live a sedentary life but with all the pain I suffer with on a daily basis, I find it almost impossible to get motivated enough to push myself to do things.
I opt for the massage since I can't afford a jacuzzi or the place to put it.
