Benefits of treating spinal diseases in Heviz (Hungary)

The leader in the treatment of spinal diseases in Hungary is the resorts located in the city of Heviz. The use of thermal waters and therapeutic mud of Lake Heviz has shown particular effectiveness in the treatment of degenerative-dystrophic (arthritis, osteochondrosis, etc.), neuralgic (neuralgia, sciatica and coccigodinia) and inflammatory (osteomyelitis, spondylitis dyscitis and others) diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

First of all, the effectiveness of the treatment is explained by the presence in the thermal waters of such critical elements for the functioning of joints as sulfur (without which serous starvation of cartilage tissue develops), sulfates, steranes, terpenes, sulfides and glutamic acids.

Also of particular effectiveness in the treatment of degenerative diseases of the spinal column (especially hernias and protrusions) has shown a unique method of underwater traction in a vertical patient, in a pool filled with mineral water.

In addition, the therapeutic arsenal of the resorts of Lake Heviz includes therapeutic massage, a course of drinking from mineral springs, as well as magnetic, ultrasonic and laser treatments.

What methods are used to treat the spine in Hungary?

The following methods are included in the arsenal of medical and sanatorium institutions in Hungary:

  • Thermal water therapy - they have a pronounced anti-inflammatory, aseptic and analgesic effect;
  • Underwater spinal traction - promotes decompression of the affected structures of the spinal column, thereby reducing the intensity of pain and facilitating stiffness;
  • Mud therapy and peat baths - the use of a liquid heated to a certain temperature and enriched with peat helps to alleviate the pain syndrome and eliminate the inflammatory process;
  • Thermal baths - this method on the effect on the body is similar to thermal water therapy, but unlike the latter it can be used daily.

Underwater spinal traction in Hungary

Underwater spinal traction in Hungary

The use of underwater spinal traction in Hungary is one of the most popular and effective methods of treating degenerative diseases of the spinal column.

To ensure traction, the patient is suspended by the chin or armpits in an environment providing maximum compression (in a heated thermal pool). To optimize the process, special weighting agents are attached to the patient's legs, the weight of which is determined depending on the severity of the disease and can vary from two to twenty kilograms.

The essence of the procedure is the gradual and accurate lengthening of the spinal column, which allows you to relieve pressure from the damaged segments, eliminates the displacement of the intervertebral discs and reduces the compression of the spinal roots.

The course consists of fifteen procedures, the duration of which reaches twenty minutes.

The cost of treatment of the spine in the sanatoriums of Hungary

The cost of treatment depends on many factors, among which are: the cost of living in Hungary, the price of travel to the resort and vice versa, as well as the price of consultations with the attending physician and the treatment itself.

Examples of the cost of spinal treatment in Hungary:

  • A therapeutic massage session - seven euros (partial) or twelve (full);
  • One procedure for mud therapy, spinal traction and underwater jet massage - seven euros;
  • One lesson in therapeutic gymnastics is six euros (group) or twelve for an individual.
