Not only do walk-in tubs help make bathing safer, they also offer benefits such as the therapeutic effects that warm water provides for muscle relaxation, recovery from certain injuries, and helping manage conditions like chronic back pain and arthritis.
Whether someone is suffering from temporary or permanent mobility loss due to an injury or aging, walk-in bathtubs are quickly becoming one of the best options to make bathing safer. The increased risk of slips and falls when entering and exiting the tub is far less of an issue because of the inward or outward swinging doors built into walk-in tubs.
The many safety features of walk-in tubs are not the only benefits that owners can take advantage of. Being able to sit comfortably while submerged in a warm water bath also enhances the therapeutic benefits that soaking in warm water can have on the body.
For many people suffering from mobility loss, there are often times new aches and pains in muscles and joints. Studies show that soaking in warm water between 92-100 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 20 minutes can help reduce pain and improve healing. The warm water has been shown to decrease swelling and inflammation and increase circulation, which can have lasting health benefits.
The conditions that warm water bathing can help with include musculoskeletal conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and low back pain. Many walk-in tub models from Ella’s Bubble even include features such as air and water jets which can be used to massage especially soar or painful areas of the body.
“At Ella’s Bubbles we design walk-in tubs that maximize safety, comfort and therapeutic spa features to ensure our customers have the most amazing bathing experiences possible,” says Laimonis Magone, CEO, Ella’s Bubbles. “The added benefit of the warm water baths in walk-in tubs is that users are able to sit comfortably while the tub does all the work.”
Additional accessories available from Ella’s Bubbles that can help aid healing and pain management include therapeutic foot massage, heated seats and backrests and Infusion MicroBubble Therapy. MicroBubbles released into bath water increase water temperature over time and increase oxygen in the water by 50%, which can aid in skin regeneration.
Anyone considering a walk-in tub should not only consider the safety features, but also the health and healing capabilities as well.
