Today, May 12 is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. More studies emerge month after month about the wonderful therapeutic benefits of regular soaking in a hot tub. Many sites about reducing the physical complaints of those dealing with fibromyalgia site that hot tub soaking may help.
Fibromyalgia is described as widespread pain, usually involving 18 key tender points involving muscle and connective tissue on the human body. Pain is chronic, making daily tasks challenging. Fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and joint stiffness are typical issues fibromyalgia sufferers deal with regularly.
No formal study has been done regarding regular use of a hot tub to combat fibromyalgia challenges, although many sites on the condition do point to hot tubs as a way to relieve pain and increase ease of movement. Since it has been well documented that using a hot tub prior to bedtime does aid everyone in having a more restful night’s sleep, tubbing can definitely help fight the sleep issues stemming from fibromyalgia.
