If you’re one of the millions of people suffering from fibromyalgia, you’re probably always looking
for new ways to ease your symptoms. So it’s no surprise that many people are curious about
whether or not hot tubs can help relieve fibromyalgia pain. This blog post will look at the
research on this topic and discuss the benefits of using a hot tub to treat fibromyalgia.
A study looked at if a hot tub could improve symptoms of fibromyalgia. The researchers found
that participants who used the hot tub three times per week had fewer pain and tenderness
points than those who didn’t use it at all. In addition, they also reported fewer fatigue levels,
improved cognitive functioning, and lower levels of depression.
A hot tub could reduce muscle spasms associated with fibromyalgia. This study found that after
one month of using the hot tub twice daily, participants experienced significantly reduced muscle
spasms by up to 35%. In addition, those who used the hot tub reported an improved range of
motion and increased strength.
The heat from a hot tub can also help lessen stiffness associated with fibromyalgia. A study
found that after two weeks of using a hot tub three times per week, participants had lower
stiffness levels than those who didn’t use it.
Hot tubs could reduce the severity of sleep problems in people with fibromyalgia. After one
month of using the hot tub twice daily, participants reported improved quality of sleep and
reductions in fatigue levels.
Many people have found that immersing themselves in a hot tub can help them manage their
pain and improve their overall quality of life. Invest in a hot tub and let the warm water provide
relief from your pain.
