Sovata rheumatological treatment

Around 80% of people over the age of 55 show typical signs of arthritis when X-rayed, and 60% of these also feel “pain”. The main causes of the increased number of people suffering from arthritis are a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and hyperacid diets (too many animal proteins and fats, and refined sugars). Complications resulting from arthritis are depression, dependency, social isolation, increased risk of fractures, chronic fatigue caused by less movement, and a decreased quality of life.

I. Therapy

Sovata rheumatological treatment is particularly useful in alleviating arthritis and Bechterew’s disease and promoting post-traumatic rehabilitation, which requires adequate thermotherapy and hydrokinetotherapy. Salt water and sapropelic mud, taken from Bear Lake, offer great benefits in healing these diseases; the positive effects last about 3–6 months after the treatment at Sovata.


  • Osteoarthritis (hip, knee, etc), spondylarthrosis
  • Inflammatory rheumatism- ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew’s disease), rheumatoid arthritis, gout, psoriatic arthritis
  • tenosynovitis, epicondylitis, periarthritis of the shoulder, fibromyalgia
  • postural deformities of the spine: scoliosis, kyphosis, lumbar hyperlordosis
  • prevention of osteoporosis
  • post-traumatic disorders (following sprains, fractures, muscle tears)
  • rehabilitation after surgery (disc herniation, arthroplasties – e.g. hip replacement)

Specific contraindications: acute phase of same diseases mentioned above

Content: medical consultation, mudpack treatment, medical massage, hydrotherapy, electrotherapy, individual kineto-/hydrokinetotherapy.

II. Prevention
Arthritis is not an inevitable consequence of aging. We are able to avoid the occurrence of arthritis.
Indications: sedentary lifestyle; working in cold, wet atmospheres; tense muscles or joints, stiffness, peripheral circulation disorders; repeated painful blockage of joints; postural deformities of the spine caused by prolonged inadequate body postures
(for example, prolonged sitting at computer, prolonged driving).
