Methods and effects of treatment in Teplice

Teplice Spa Head Physician MUDr. Jan Štěrba, a specialist in musculoskeletal diseases with 40 years of experience:

"Over the years, the body loses water together with the cartilage extracellular matrix. Ligaments lose their elasticity and muscle insertions become more painful. This results in lower amount of the person's physical activity characterized by a limited scope of joint mobility accompanied by pain.
At the same time, the activities of lytic enzymes lead to the cartilage degeneration. There are hormonal changes in both men and women decreasing the levels of calcium and phosphate in the body. As a result, bones are weakened, which leads to osteopenia and in a worst case, to osteoporosis.
The curative waters contain substances
such as fluorine, phosphorus, iodide, sulfur, and others that supplement the missing substances very well and prevent the body from this kind of diseases. 

When we see the high number of people who get disabled unnecessarily, we are shocked to find out how little we do for an adequate care of our musculoskeletal system. Spa treatment with its comprehensive approach is not only less expensive, but also more pleasant than the chronic medicamentous treatment. Some still ask if healthy people should go to spas too. However, at my age, I know personally, that a recovery stay prevents a number of diseases and keeps the body healthy and fit into old age."  

Benefits of spa treatment in specific diseases

 

musculoskeletal diseases


Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, other spondarthritis, diffuse connective tissue disease

Use of electrotherapy, and magnet therapy, laser, and cryotherapy inhibits the inflammation and reduces pain in the affected tissues. Hydrotherapy procedures and positive thermotherapy help to reduce the muscle hypertonia and lengthen muscle contractions, resulting in an extended scope of joint mobility and better posture of the body. Hand and lymphatic massages have a positive impact on the immune system and the trophic properties /nutrition/ of soft tissues.  

Osteoporosis with complications

Group and individual therapeutic exercise with a physiotherapist and exercise in the swimming pool lead to reasonable load on muscles, stimulating the function of osteoblasts /cells forming bones/ and reduce resorption of the bone tissue. By improving the muscle condition the anabolic actions of the body are supported. Magnet therapy has a positive impact on bone fracture healing. Hydrotherapy procedures improve perfusion and metabolism of the whole body.    

Syndromes of painful tendons, tendon sheaths, bursas, and muscle insertions

Hydrotherapy procedures, electrotherapy, magnet therapy, and laser reduce the inflammation activity, improve perfusion and supply of nutrients to tissues, they accelerate elimination of toxic substances from the body, and lead to faster regeneration of the affected tissue. The purpose of individual exercise with a physiotherapist is to adopt correct movement patterns.    

Hip arthritis, knee arthritis, arthritis in other localities

Hydrotherapy procedures, gas injections, electrotherapy, magnet therapy, hand massages improve tissue perfusion, reduce pain, and together with thermotherapy, group and individual exercise contributes to stretching of shortened muscles, strengthening of weakened muscles, and joint centration, which leads to extended scope of mobility of the arthritic joints.

Chronic back pain syndrome

Hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, electrotherapy, magnet therapy, hand massages, and gas injections contribute to reduction in the pathologically increased muscle tension in the overstressed muscle groups, which releases the pain. Together with individual techniques and therapeutic exercise, they regulate the muscular dysbalance /imbalance/ and lead to improvement in statodynamic function of the spine.      

Joint replacement surgeries, conditions after musculoskeletal system injuries, and after spine surgeries

The complex of spa procedures ensures healing of the tissues after the surgery, reduces the post-operative edema and pain, improves the condition of the muscles, the scope of mobility of the joints after the surgery, and the statodynamic function of the spine. Correct movement patterns are practiced to prevent recurrence of the chronic degenerative process /e.g. at a higher segment of the spine or in the contralateral joint/.  

nervous system disorders


 

Facial nerve paralysis, post-polio syndrome, flaccid paralysis

Electrostimulation of the affected nerve according to the strength/duration curve, and individual techniques with a physiotherapist as therapeutic exercise keeps muscles functional, prevents secondary shortening of the affected muscles and thus improve the functional scope of mobility and contributes to prevention of deformities and deviations in joints. It also improves coordination of the limbs, the patient's ability to care for themselves, and their mobility; alternative movements are practiced to preserve the patient's ability to care for themselves. Hydrotherapy procedures and thermotherapy improve perfusion and the trophic properties /nutrition/ of the affected nerves and muscles. Facilitating techniques enable faster regeneration. The comprehensive approach helps improving the general physical fitness and mental wellbeing.   

Polyneuropathy with paresis symptoms

Electrostimulation of the affected nerve according to the strength/duration curve, and individual techniques with a physiotherapist as therapeutic exercise keeps muscles functional and prevents secondary shortening of the affected muscles. Hydrotherapy procedures improve perfusion and nutrition of the affected muscles and nerves. Hand and lymphatic massages have a positive impact on the immune system. 

Nerve root syndromes

Hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, electrotherapy, magnet therapy, hand massages, and gas injections contribute to reduction in the pathologically increased muscle tension in the overstressed muscle groups, which releases the pain. Together with individual techniques and therapeutic exercise, they regulate the muscular imbalance and lead to improvement in the spine dynamic.

Inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system

Electrostimulation of the affected nerve, and individual techniques with a physiotherapist as therapeutic exercise keeps muscles functional, prevents secondary shortening of the affected muscles and thus improve the functional scope of mobility and contributes to prevention of deformities and deviations in joints. It also improves coordination of the limbs, the patient's ability to care for themselves, and their mobility; alternative movements are practiced to preserve the patient's ability to care for themselves. The comprehensive approach helps improving the general physical fitness and mental wellbeing
