Hot tubs provide some great temporary relief. Heat helps by bringing natural pain relief to a sore joint. Heat increases the circulation, thus the fluid from a swollen joint can be removed by the blood stream and filtered out by the kidneys. If you have access to a hot tub then you know that exposing painful joints to warm soothing water for 20 minutes at night and in the morning can make a big difference in how you sleep and with your joint mobility during the day. For me, after a 20 minute soak at 103 degrees, I am more relaxed at night. Not only do I feel a reduced pain level, I sleep well allowing my body to rejuvenate sore and painful joints better. In the morning, a 20 minute soak helps get relief needed to get my joints moving for the day. I have used one for six years now and while it may not be long lasting relief, it is relief. After a 20 minute soak, I hurt less and am more flexible.
