Lufkin, TX, October 30, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- East Texas Spa, a new and used hot tub dealer with stores in Tyler and Longview, TX is participating in National Physical Therapy Month by providing VIP hot tub test soaks in both their East Texas showrooms to help teach the public on how to better your life.
“There are many reasons to seek the help of a qualified physical therapist,” said Randall Glaske, president of East Texas Spa. “Anyone who has ongoing pain that refuses to go away, or when muscles and joints don’t move like they once did, can also benefit from therapy,” continued Glaske.
Here are three ways to get the most out of physical therapy and improve the results.
Don’t Delay - Putting off physical therapy will only make treatments take longer. Get the help needed to recover from injury or illness as soon as the attending physician recommends it.
Physical therapy isn’t something most patients can do on their own. It’s normal to avoid painful movements, and physical therapy can cause discomfort while helping injuries heal or joints to move. Having a therapist not only gives patients the impetus needed to do the work, but also assures them of the safety of each movement and that the pain they feel is normal.
When the therapist gives out exercises to do at home, make sure they get done. These exercises are an important part of recovery, and keep the injured areas moving and ready for the next in-depth therapy session.
Speak Up - If there are any exercises that feel uncomfortable, or cause pain, let the therapist know about it. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and talk about the plan the therapist has for the treatment program as well. The more informed a patient is, the more they can help it progress, and have a better outlook through it all.
Physical therapy programs vary in length and difficulty depending on the type of injury. No two programs will be the same. Don’t expect the given program to match that of a friend or acquaintance. Knowing exactly what the therapist expects the progress to be can help give each individual patient a feeling of accomplishment and a way to judge progress.
It is also helpful to find out what the therapist feels is normal soreness, and how muscles should feel after each session and even the next day. That will help relieve feelings of anxiety over pain or soreness, and make it possible to alert the therapist when unexpected or long-term pain occurs.
Take Care of the Injuries - Preventing further injury, and giving muscles and joints the pampering they deserve is an important part of physical therapy that anyone can accomplish. Make sure to take it easy and not to overdo activities while undergoing therapy. Get a hot tub and soak in the warm swirling water to relax muscles and help them recover from physical therapy appointments and at-home exercises.
As therapy progresses and the therapist recommends getting more active, extra equipment specially made for hot tubs can help provide strength training for injured muscles and joints in a buoyant atmosphere that is less likely to aggravate injuries. Aerobic exercises in the warm, soothing hot tub water also allows patients to keep physically fit without straining injured areas while going through the therapy sessions.
“We think this is a great opportunity to actually show local residents the positive effects that soaking in a hot tub can have in terms of improving the overall quality of their lives. That’s why we will provide VIP hot tub test soaks in both of our East Texas locations throughout the entire month,” said Chris Ogden, Longview Branch Manager.
“We want residents to check out all the benefits of a relaxing in hot tub for themselves.” A VIP test soak includes gourmet chocolates and a glass of champagne that can be enjoyed while experiencing the many benefits of a soaking in a Hot Spring Spa. VIP test soaks are by appointment only and can be scheduled after hours with a 48-hour notice.
