  • I was diagnosed with fibro over 10 years ago. I know in the summer when I can be in the water it helps a lot when I am in the water but the pain comes back as soon as I get out, infact getting out is a real chore. I don’t have a tub

  • Yes, hydrotherapy is very helpful..just be very careful that the hot tub is cleaned and checked regularly. You can get hair follicle infection and while not painful it is disgusting!
