New York City, NY (PressExposure) February 06, 2012 -- Chronic neck pain is a common complaint. Fortunately, it's usually not caused by anything serious, and often responds to non-medical treatment. Warm-water relaxation and massage, two well-known strategies for relieving a variety of aches and pains, are combined in hydrotherapy delivered by hot tub jets [http://www.sundancespas.com/Features/Jets.html], according to Sundance Spas, the world's largest manufacturer of acrylic hot tubs.
Doing simple repetitive tasks, like working at a computer or driving, can cause neck pain. The muscles at the back of the neck are especially vulnerable to tightness, causing pain and diminished range of motion. In addition to doing stretches recommended specifically for neck pain, at-home muscle relaxation promoted by the action of hot tub jets can loosen stiffness, and make stretching easier.
"Sundance Spas designs adjustable hot tub jets specifically for the neck, to deliver exactly the right type of massage action, right where it does the most good," says Nathan Mangum, director of marketing. "Studies have indicated that heat can help relax sore muscles, as well. Warm water massage from the spa jets in a Sundance® brand hot tub can be very beneficial in providing effective neck pain relief."
The patented Fluidix Nex jets by Sundance Spas target the neck with a massage meant for small muscles and sensitive nerves. Accu-Pressure hot tub jets for the neck provide a deeper massage to effectively help loosen very tight muscles and connective tissue.
In research cited by the American Academy of Pain Medicine, recent data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) suggest substantial rates of pain from the various causes or chronic pain. According to the article, "For U.S. adults reporting pain, causes include: severe headache or migraine (16.1%), low back pain (28.1%), neck pain (15.1%), knee pain (19.5%), shoulder pain (9.0%), finger pain (7.6%), and hip pain (7.1%)."
Spa jets can not only help with chronic neck pain, the variety of hot tub jets placed throughout a Sundance hot tub target other parts of the body with therapeutic hydro massage.
