Scottsdale, AZ, October 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Southwest Spas, the premier Dimension One Spas dealer serving the Scottsdale, Phoenix, Mesa and Tempe, Arizona area selling new and used hot tubs is participating in Physical Therapy Month.
“Physical therapy is an important medical tool used by physicians to treat everything from minor sprains to sports injuries and as a recovery tool for patients suffering major illnesses,” said Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas. “The injuries and diseases that benefit from physical therapy are varied, but they all have one common element: patients who want it to go as fast as possible,” continued Dalacas.
Here are three ways to recover quicker and help physical therapy sessions achieve the best results.
Attitude - Being sick or injured is a naturally depressing situation. However, keeping a positive attitude will help speed up recovery as well as helping it be less frustrating. Having a positive attitude helps the body incorporate the medical and therapy treatments for healing.
Robert Andrews, sports psychologist, suggests using positive mental reinforcement by seeing each exercise or stage already accomplished. He also enforces the positive point of view strategy of repeating affirmative statements such as “I can do this exercise,” or “I am getting better” instead of “I can’t.”
Keeping a positive attitude helps patients maintain a sometimes rigorous schedule of doctor appointments, therapist appointments and still enjoy life while undergoing treatments.
Understand the Injury and Treatment Plan - Don’t be afraid to ask doctors and therapists to explain injuries or prescribed treatment so it is fully understandable. Knowing what the needs of each situation are, can help each person deal with the requirements and complete the therapy quicker and with a better attitude.
Move it to Improve It - When exercise is a part of a physical therapy program, doing the prescribed exercises as often as possible will help the injured areas improve quicker. Don’t wait for a session to do the exercises. When the therapist says it is okay, make sure to do the exercises as often as the body is physically able.
If there is persistent pain from any exercise, make sure to tell the therapist as soon as possible, and refrain from those movements until the doctor or therapist says it is okay. In some cases, pain is a common part of the therapeutic process, but it should never be taken for granted. Excessive pain can be a sign that further injury is possible.
In-Home Hot Water Therapy - Warm water is soothing, and a natural choice for anyone with aches and pains. For people recovering from serious illness and injuries, however, it takes on a whole new purpose. Therapists often incorporate hot water therapy into the treatment, but adding home sessions will help speed recovery.
Hot tubs are perfect for hot water therapy because they offer a combination of treatments. The first is the water itself. The buoyant nature of water takes the pressure off of painful joints or areas of injury. The second thing quality hot tubs provide to therapy is the heat. Unlike a pool or common tub, the water in a hot tub is maintained at the precisely desired temperature. Finally, the powerful jets of a hot tub aid the healing of sore muscles and bring blood flow to the areas of injury for faster healing.
“To help local residents understand how portable spas, hot tubs and swim spas can help improve overall health and well-being, Southwest Spas will provide free hot tub test soaks during the entire month,” commented Dalacas. “We want to encourage local residents to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in the soothing waters of a hot tub for themselves.”
