Methods applied for treatment have been focused on:
1. Prevention - using natural (climatic factors, solar radiation, water, movement, etc), and pre-formed physical factors.
2. Diagnostics – suing pre-formed physical factors, instrumental and manual methods and tests.
3. Therapy – through a selection of appropriate natural and/or and pre-formed physical factors, individual or in combination with pharmacological and etc. means of medical practice depending on the type and stage of the main disorder and/or any concomitant disorders.
4. Medical rehabilitation – to achieve maximum functional capability and successful re-socialization of individual in inferior health condition who are prone to disablement
5. Complete psychosomatic recreation and/or stabilization of patients
These methods achieve analgesic and antiedemic effect, normalized trophic and metabolic processes in the body, increased adaptive capacity and body resistance to diseases.
1. DC (galvanic) electrotherapy and DC low frequency electrotherapy:
1.1. Electro stimulation of neuromuscular system with low frequency current;
1.2. Treatment with sinusoidal modulation current –electrophoresis;
1.3. Interference therapy;
1.4. Vacuum massage;
1.5. Low intensity pulse magnetic field;
1.6. Ultrasonic therapy (phonophoresis);
1.7. High frequency electrotherapy
2. Light treatment:
2.1. Ultraviolet irradiation (UV) with a quartz lamp;
2.2. Infrared and visible light spectrum treatment
2.3. Color therapy
3. Inhalation (aerosol) treatment
Active, passive, assisted, suspension type and pooly therapy, reflexive, analytical, healing massage – classic and specialized: relaxing, stimulating (energizing), preventive, draining - preventive or healing, lymph drainage, assisted kinesitherapy, respiratory drills, etc. Healing massage has positive effects on disorders and results in normalization of pathologically changed functions and helps improve the overall healing of immune system.
5. Thermal treatment:
5.1. Thermal treatment - using peloids or lye as local /general applications;
Capabilities for submerged massage, air pearl and eddy massage, jet and vortex massage, combined application of thermal and mechanical procedures, with high therapeutic, calming and relaxing effect; Charcot shower;
