Can a hot tub really improve my back pain?

Hot Tubs Improve Back Pain Over Time

Two European studies indicate back pain is consistently improved after using a hot tub. One study measured results in a group of sufferers who used a hot tub for three weeks, and another group who only used medications for their back pain. After three weeks, the group who used consistent hot water therapy in the hot tubs had less pain and pain intensity along with more back flexibility. The study continued for six months, and participants continued to show significant improvement. They also used fewer pain-killers like aspirin or anti-inflammatories.
