Thermal Procedures

 

Paraffin – supplementary procedure

Paraffin (wax) packs are another very convenient procedure for treatment of locomotive system disorders. This method uses transmission of warmth which is released during solidification of paraffin between 52 – 55 °C. Paraffin material with paraffin oil is applied on the treated place. Local transmission of warmth (more than in a peloid procedure) causes warming and release of tissues, which relieves pain. This procedure is suitable for treatment of pain in small joints caused by arthrosis.

Parafango – main procedure

Parafango, which is a thermotherapy procedure, is an often used procedure which like paraffin packs uses transmission of specific warmth of parafango i.e. mixture of paraffin and diluted peloid, to the patient’s body. The temperature of parafango is usually 50 °C. Warmth is firstly absorbed by the skin which leads to an increase of skin perfusion and later on it is transmitted to deeper structures of the body where it has anti-inflammatory effects. These packs are recommended for treatment of locomotive system diseases.

Classical peat pack – main procedure

One of the most liked thermoprocedures is the peat pack used in case of locomotive system disorders. Its main advantage is the use of natural healing substances. The immediate effect is better blood circulation, ease of muscle tension, softening of ligament and an analgatic effect. 42 – 44 °C warm peat is put on the patient´s back for 20 minutes with a warm shower afterwards. The peat pack is used when the peloid bath is impossible. In case even the clasiccal peat pack is of any stress for the cardiovascular system, the quick peat pack is recommended.


Cryotherapy – supplementary procedure

This modern method belongs to the procedures of negative therapy with procedure temperature of minus 5 – minus 15 °C and less. During the procedure the physiotherapist applies local chilling thermogel plasters in cases of inflammatory and chronic defect of the locomotive system and local swellings.


Haslauer Soft-Pack System – main procedure

This procedure utilises the unique therapeutic effects of the Haslauer body wrap water bath in combination with the client’s choice of natural products. Oil, peat, or other natural additives are applied to a delicate plastic film that is wrapped around the body of the client, who is then immersed into the membrane of the water bed. The light pressure of the water gently presses the plastic film to the body, which allows the individual treatments (oils, additives) to delicately perform their functions. The therapeutic effects of gradually warming the body to the recommended temperature are enhanced by the resulting feeling of weightlessness. The body wrap bath reduces localised swelling, and boosts the natural anti-inflammatory processes of the body. Selected additives create a variety of other effects as well.
