If you are dealing with the prospect of surgical rehabilitation or other physical therapy programs, it might be a good idea to discuss warm water immersion therapy with your doctor.
Studies show that long after this treatment is used, patients who had such aquatic therapy (hydrotherapy) showed a positive difference in mobility and strength in the areas affected by surgery.
Separate studies of monitored patients dealing with circulatory problems, arthritis, and other physical problems also show a surprising number of benefits of warm water therapy.
Indeed, a Best Hot Tubs client was dealing with challenging mobility issues. He was encouraged by his doctor to get a portable hot tub to help meet his therapeutic requirements.
He chose one of our Bullfrog Spas — in large part because of Bullfrog’s fantastic message system (JetPaks). We’ll have more on that below. But let’s first look at how Best Hot Tubs helped arrange the perfect spa installation.
Hot Tub Deck
Our client and his wife had an existing paver patio and wanted a new deck conveniently located to their back door where the hot tub could be installed.
“At one time I owned a design/build landscaping firm,” says Bill Renter, owner of Best Hot Tubs. “I remain close to the new owner and those who work there, as well as other contractors. So it was easy for us at Best Hot Tubs to help conceive the best spa set up for this man and his family.”
We worked with The Deck and Patio Company to set their Bullfrog Spa at 18 inches high into their new Trex composite deck.
“This allows the client to sit on its edge and swing his legs across easily, then ease himself into one of the JetPak massage seats,” says Bill. “We also added a sturdy handrail to help him get in and out.”
The deck design called for a sitting area adjacent to the spa. This allows for easy conversation while he’s relaxing in his hot tub’s healing waters.
Each JetPak provides different therapy options — from focused deep tissue target massages to a more soothing and subtle rain-shower massage.
Hot tub covers — especially with the Cover Lifter provided with all our hot tub packages — make it easy to cover and uncover a hot tub. In addition, even though the hot tub is set into the deck for easy access, a handrail can be an extra layer of safety.
As promised above, we include below some detailed information on Bullfrog Spas’s superb hydrotherapy. Enjoy the video:
