2. Why is our sulphur curative mud so effective?
The sulphur curative mud promotes muscle and joint regeneration. At the same time, it has an anti-inflammatory effect and relieves pain, thus rheumatic diseases, sports injuries and muscle fever heal more rapidly under the influence of sulphur.
3. What makes the curative mud in Piešťany so unique?
The sulphur curative spring in Piešťany lies 2,000 m below the Spa Island and is highly concentrated with 10 mg of sulphur/liter of mineral water. The temperature of the springs ranges from 67 to 69°C. The mineral water is hot, enriched with sulphate-hydrogen carbonate, calcium – sodium, and sulphur water. It is mainly used for baths but also for medicinal tinctures.
This sulphur curative water provides the basis for the creation of a unique curative mud that has been successfully used for rheumatic therapy for hundreds of years.
The curative mud has a positive effect on joint health at different levels:
- It relieves pain
- It prevents inflammation
- It acts against swelling
- It promotes cartilage formation or prevents cartilage degeneration
- It promotes collagen production and is responsible for the rapid regeneration of the connective tissue
- It is an antioxidant and neutralizes free radicals having an harmful impact on joint health
Thanks to these properties, the organic sulphur mud is interesting not only for rheumatic therapies and athletes but, of course, for all people struggling with joint problems.
4. How long do spa stays at the Health Spa Piešťany take?
It all depends on the amount of difficulties and development of the disease. The recommended length of stay is 2-3 weeks combined with 24 procedures per week.
The duration of one spa stay is at least 7 days.
5. Are treatments in Piešťany designed for athletes?
Yes. The properties of the curative mud are very effective even in sports injuries, but also in terms of the faster regeneration of the locomotor system.
6. How can I prevent rheumatic disorders?
The best prevention is beginning with a lot of movement even in childhood because movement strengthens muscles. Joint-loading sports as well as extreme sports are not recommend.
7. What are other rheumatic diseases?
Arthrosis: A disease of the articular cartilage as a result of improper or excessive loading.
Osteoporosis: Also known as bone loss. The skeleton loses stability and the risk of fractures increases.
Fibromyalgia: A special type of rheumatic disorder caused by painful muscle tightness. Symptoms of fibromyalgia include chronic pain of the muscles and tendons, increased sensitivity to pressure pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis: Pain in the fingers and wrists, joint stiffness, also deformities may develop later.
Ankylosing spondylitis: A chronic inflammatory rheumatic disorder mainly affecting the joints of the spine. It can lead to spine immobilization. The major symptom is a chronic, deeply-rooted backache.
Gout: A metabolic disorder caused by urate crystal deposition in the body leading to joint inflammation. Gout may be hereditary or acquired due to unhealthy lifestyle.
8. Who is more likely to be affected? Men or women?
Degenerative diseases can affect both women and men, with a slightly higher prevalence in women. Rheumatoid arthritis, which is the most severe inflammatory disease and causes joint deformity, affects women three times more often than men. By contrast, men suffer from inflammatory disease of the spine 10 times more often compared to women. The spine becomes hard and immobile.
9. Can proper nutrition help?
There is no rheumatic diet! Good experience has been found with observing a Mediterranean diet, i.e. a lot of fruit and vegetables and the preference of fish over meat. In addition, it is important to achieve or maintain optimal body weight to preserve the joints. Avoid the over-consumption of red meat, sugar and white flour!
10. When is a doctor’s visit recommended?
Basically, the following rule applies: A doctor’s visit is recommended if the joints are swollen for longer than 6 weeks and the morning stiffness lasts longer than 1 hour. The sooner the therapy starts, the better.
11. What are the possible causes of rheumatic disorders?
The causes of rheumatic disorders have not yet been fully understood. However, genetic predisposition plays an important role. What is certain is that smoking also contributes to the disease’s development.
12. How do rheumatic diseases affect the joints?
The disease is characterized by unpleasant pain in various parts of the body, especially in the joints of the fingers, toes and wrists. Degenerative changes begin with the articular cartilage, where water accumulates. The cartilage is not smooth any more and degenerates. The joint becomes significantly warmer, lighter and swollen. The disorder is characterized by the wear of the cartilage, which loses its natural cushion function, and friction between the bones occurs. A heavy load causes the inflammation of structures surrounding the joint. Severe pain occurs and mobility and joint function are reduced.
