By a special category of medical and therapeutic measures include procedures for providing dynamic impact on the patient’s body vibrations, waves, currents and water jets. Often the mechanical effect is combined with thermal, when the liquid in contact with the skin heats up to +40-42 C. These procedures cause the body to the positive physiological changes – reduce inflammation, stimulate metabolism, improve circulation and produce many other effects. The sanatorium “Podolia” travel can be assigned to vibration and whirlpool baths, as well as underwater massage shower.
These procedures are in effect for a specific body area of ??mechanical vibrations of low frequency transmitted to the skin through a layer of warm water. Thanks to this, the patient not only act hydrostatic, but the temperature factor. If the vacationer appointed whirlpool bath with mineral water, is added to the treatment and chemical aspect. This procedure has anti-inflammatory, desensitizing and analgesic effect, but also changes the trophic tissue. The dosage of vibration improves lymph and blood circulation and lead to normal metabolism. The sanatorium “Podolia” vibrating bath appointed travel with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, digestive system, respiratory ailments and female genitalia. Particularly well, they have proven in the treatment of degenerative disc disease, chronic pneumonia, bronchial asthma, gastritis, and cholecystitis.
The mechanism of action similar to a Jacuzzi whirlpools – jets of water and twists performed underwater massage different parts of the body. Medical factors in this case are the hydrostatic and thermal stimuli, enhanced monotonous movement of water in the tub. Effect is noticeable even from a single vortex taking a bath. As a result, increases the tone of veins and improves hemodynamics. Systemic treatment improves the microcirculation in the skin, normalizes the sympathetic-adrenal parameters of the system, reduces serotonin levels and cause other effects that are beneficial for your metabolism. Whirlpool improve the functioning of the cardiovascular system, reduces inflammation, has analgesic, resolving and stimulating action. Such procedures are assigned to patients suffering from diseases of the joints, nervous system, respiratory system and digestive system.
Underwater shower massage
During the underwater shower-massage the patient’s body is massaged elastic jet of water from a special apparatus. A combination of mechanical and thermal effects causes an increase in skin temperature, blood rushes to that. Thanks to such stimulation improves microcirculatory processes, tissue nutrition, lymph and blood circulation. In addition, massage shower normalizes metabolism, accelerates the elimination of sources of inflammation, relaxes tense muscles. This procedure is applicable in the treatment and prevention of injuries of the musculoskeletal system, peripheral nervous system disorders, varicose veins, pathologic menopause, endocrine disorders. Underwater shower massage an excellent reputation as a rehabilitation procedure that promotes rapid healing of wounds, ulcers and other injuries.
