Hot Tubs Hartford, WI - Dimension One Spas Dealer Shares Guide to Help Cope With Juvenile Arthritis

Hot Tub Dealer Serving Hartford, WI Publishes 3 Ways to Deal With the Complications of Childhood Arthritis - Offers Free Test Soaks to Hartford, WI Residents!
HARTFORD, Wis. - July 28, 2013 - PRLog -- Hartford, WI 53027 – Pool Park, the premier Dimension One Spas dealer in the Wisconsin area selling new and used Dimension One hot tubs and portable spas publishes a free guide for dealing with daily stress.

“Arthritis is a difficult illness for children to deal with,´ said Tom Ford, vice president of Pool Park. “The complications include severe pain, stiffness, and often a feeling of isolation from peers.  Parents can do a lot to help children deal with juvenile arthritis.”  

“Working along with their physicians, a combination of medicine and other forms of therapy can help kids maintain a normal life and social interaction,” continued Ford. Here are three things anyone can do to deal with the complications of juvenile arthritis:

Steroids - When most people think about steroids, they think of athletic supplements that make muscles larger than normal. The types of steroids used in the treatment of juvenile arthritis are not in the same family as the corticosteroids used by athletes.

Steroids for arthritis are a synthetic version of the hormone cortisol that the body uses to decrease inflammation in muscles and joints. A physician may inject steroids directly into the affected joints. They can also prescribe a topical ointment that is easy to apply whenever needed.

Steroids are most often used in addition to pain killers, and an added part of all-around treatment including physical therapy, hydrotherapy, and extra supportive devices such as braces, or splints that limit joint movement.

DMARDs - These drugs alter the way the immune system behaves in response to rheumatic fever. DMARD stands for disease modifying anti-rhematic drugs. They are powerful, but very helpful medications that limit the severity of arthritis.

Water Therapy - Medications of all types can be particularly rough on very young children. When they are needed, they are an important part of routine care. However, as much as possible, any parent would prefer to limit the number of drugs required to control the symptoms of juvenile arthritis.

One of the most powerful methods of dealing with the daily pains and complications of arthritis for both adults and children is hydrotherapy. Water by itself has many healing properties.

The buoyancy in water takes pressure off of joints and helps reduce further injury. The weightless atmosphere of water also makes exercise easier for children who suffer from arthritis, giving them the ability to get daily activities in for better health, and also work joints in a pain- free environment so they move more freely.

A hot tub has even more benefits due to the extra components of heat and water jets. The heat increases blood flow which encourages healing and at the same time, soothes muscles and joints.

The strong jets provide massage for muscles and relax them, and also reduce pain in joints and tendons. Hot tubs take up less space than pools and provide deeper water and therapy benefits than a simple bath tub. Hot tubs are small enough to fit most living spaces. Some can even fit on balconies or patios.

Hot tubs are also easier to care for than full-sized pools, and come in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of the entire family. While they are great for arthritis therapy, a hot tub also promotes family togetherness, and helps children dealing with arthritis feel a part of family gatherings and fun.
