Nothing is more relaxing than getting into a warm bath with some bath salts, and candles lit to relax after a long day.
Even if relaxation isn’t your number one priority, a bath is sometimes the best option for seniors or someone with a disability or other health concerns.
Bathing can be difficult for those with chronic pain, mobility issues, weak joints, and more. They may struggle to stand in the shower for long periods of time or be more likely to slip as they step over the tub’s edge.
At Watters Plumbing, we make it easier for you to age in place with safe and accessible walk-in tubs and affordable bathroom remodeling options that fit your budget. With a walk-in tub, many adults regain some of their independence — or manage to keep it longer.
Walk-In Tubs Relieve Stress on Your Body
Walk-in tubs minimize strain and stress on your joints while creating a calm and comfortable environment for you to enjoy.
Warm water and powerful jets allow you to bathe while also receiving a natural form of hydrotherapy that may help ease your body’s pain.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, hydrotherapy and warm water baths provide many health benefits, including relief from arthritis, colds, depression, headaches, and so much more.
That makes them a great option not just for seniors and those with chronic health issues and disabilities, but for anyone looking to improve their health naturally.
A Good Investment for Your Future
Not only will your body appreciate the benefits of the walk-in tub, but the increased safety can save you money on potentially costly medical bills.
Walk-in bathtubs are much easier to get in and out of than traditional bathtubs, which means you’re less likely to slip and fall.
Stepping in and out of a bathtub naturally gets harder as your bones age, increasing the likelihood of injury due to falls. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries each year. In 2015, medical costs related to falls totaled more than $50 billion. The average cost of an X-ray alone is more than $1,500 in Milwaukee.
You never know what your physical abilities and health will look like down the road. Don’t wait until after you experience a painful injury. Investing in a walk-in tub now can minimize your risk of serious injury and costly hospital visits.
