Water is a truly amazing thing, isn’t it? We drink water, bathe in water, swim in water and even do yoga in water nowadays. Put simply, water is an essential, irreplaceable part of our lives. Sadly, many people with mobility issues, stemming from illness or injury, can struggle to get the most out of the therapeutic benefits of water, because accessing standard bathtubs can be challenging and, in some cases, dangerous for them. That’s where walk-in tubs start to shine!
Why you may need a walk-in tub
The fact is that if you have mobility issues, muscular soreness or pain, arthritis or are recovering from injury, hydrotherapy can be an amazing treatment that soothes and relaxes you.
If you have trouble getting in or out of your standard bathtub and cannot stand in your shower for long periods of time, a walk-in tub will give you the freedom to enjoy bathing again. We all know that hydrotherapy has been used throughout the ages for it’s health giving benefits and a walk-in tub means that you will have the freedom to bathe whenever you want, without needing to ask for help.
As we’ve already seen, hydrotherapy plays an important role to play in physical therapy. Our walk-in tubs allow you to be virtually suspended in the water, which creates a feeling of weightlessness. This weightlessness greatly reduces the stress on your joints and muscles and provides a safe way to relax and exercise.
