What is neurology?

Neurology, also known as neurological medicine, is a medical specialty dealing with the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Neurologists perform physical examinations and may order various diagnostic tests such as:

– CT (Computed Tomography): Uses X-rays to take pictures of the brain and spinal cord.

– MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): Uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create pictures of the brain and spinal cord.

– EEG (Electroencephalography): Measures the electrical activity of the brain.

– EMG (Electromyography): Measures the electrical activity of muscles.

– Nerve conduction studies: Measure the speed of conduction of electrical impulses along nerves.

Neurologists diagnose based on physical exams and various imaging tests and may prescribe medication, physical therapy, surgery, or other therapies depending on the diagnosis.

The role of a neurologist

The neurologist (neurologist specialist) is responsible for investigating, diagnosing, and treating complaints arising from the nervous system.

If surgical intervention is needed, a neurosurgeon will also be involved in the therapy.

During consultations, we take a comprehensive approach to assess the patient’s neurological condition, and after diagnosis, we begin designing the rehabilitation program. We establish the foundations of rehabilitation goals and develop a rehabilitation plan including steps towards recovery.

Who can benefit from seeing a neurologist?

  • Treatment of post-stroke conditions
  • Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonian syndromes
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome

We are also prepared for the rehabilitation of complex brain and skull injuries, as well as treating other neurodegenerative and peripheral nervous disorders.

When should you see a neurologist?

Many symptoms may indicate neurological problems, and it’s worth consulting a specialist (neurologist). Here are some examples:

  • Movement disorders: tremors, stiffness, slowed movements, weakness, balance problems, coordination disorders, difficulty walking, paralysis, convulsions
  • Sensory disorders: deterioration of vision, blurred or double vision, hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, loss of balance, numbness, tingling, pain
  • Cognitive disorders: memory problems, concentration difficulties, speech disorders, frequent forgetfulness, confusion, dementia
  • Headaches: strong, recurrent headaches, migraines, cluster headaches, tension headaches
  • Sleep disorders: insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy
  • Other symptoms: loss of consciousness, fainting, dizziness, fatigue, incontinence, mood disorders, depression, anxiety

If you experience any neurological symptoms, it is important to consult a neurologist as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve recovery chances and prevent further complications.

What diseases does a neurologist treat?

Here are some examples of common neurological disorders that a neurologist may treat:

– Headaches and migraines: Pain in any part of the head, which can vary in intensity and may have various causes. Common types include tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches.

– Cerebrovascular disorders: Conditions where the brain’s blood supply is impaired. This includes transient ischemic attacks (TIA), ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, aneurysms, and other vascular malformations.

– Epilepsy: A neurological disorder characterized by sudden, recurrent discharges of electrical activity in the brain, manifesting as seizures.

– Parkinson’s disease: A progressive neurodegenerative disorder that causes movement problems.

– Neuromuscular diseases: Disorders that affect the function of the nervous system and muscles. These can be due to genetic, autoimmune, or nervous system problems. Examples include multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), myasthenia gravis.

– Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias: Neurodegenerative diseases associated with a decline in cognitive abilities.

– Cerebral palsy (CP): Usually occurs during fetal development or early childhood due to damage to the areas of the brain responsible for movement and muscle control.

– Neuropathies: Damage or dysfunction of nerves. This can involve sensory, motor, or autonomic (involuntary, subconscious nervous system) components. There are many types of neuropathy, arising from various causes.

– Other movement disorders:

  • Tremors (tremor)
  • Muscle twitching (fasciculation)
  • Tics
  • Involuntary movements (dystonia)
  • Ataxia

What is physical therapy? What role does it play in complex rehabilitation therapy?

Physical therapy is a fundamental part of rehabilitation aimed at preventing, rehabilitating, and treating musculoskeletal disorders. Treatments are based on medical diagnosis or recommendation, with goals set collaboratively with doctors, patients, and their immediate environment. Family members are also provided with instructions to support the patient’s recovery and the rehabilitation team’s efforts.

Goals of Physical Therapy:

  • Restore function to affected organs, systems, or body parts
  • Reduce pain
  • Decrease or eliminate mobility restrictions
  • Improve or develop muscle strength
  • Overcome muscle imbalance
  • Correct improper movement patterns, such as limping
  • Enhance cardiovascular function
  • Teach proper breathing techniques

When is physical therapy important?

  • Post-Injury Rehabilitation: Helps with rehabilitation after injuries such as muscle tears, dislocations, fractures, or surgeries. Proper exercises and therapy can restore muscle strength, joint mobility, and functional movements.
  • Chronic Pain Management: For conditions like chronic back pain, arthritis, or fibromyalgia, physical therapy can help reduce pain and improve quality of life. Special exercises and therapeutic methods strengthen affected muscle groups and improve posture.
  • Neurological Conditions: Physical therapy plays an important role in treating neurological conditions like stroke, Parkinson’s disease, or spinal cord injuries. Therapeutic methods can improve balance, coordination, and overall mobility.
  • Sports Performance and Prevention: Physical therapy is not only vital for rehabilitation after injuries but also helps athletes enhance performance and prevent injuries. Special strengthening and stretching exercises optimize muscle strength, flexibility, and joint stability.

The importance of physical therapy at different ages

Physiotherapy plays an important role in the preservation of health and the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal problems at all ages, however, the therapy focuses on different goals and tools at each age:

In the case of infants and small children:

Physiotherapy can help babies and toddlers develop their movement, improve their muscle tone and correct coordination disorders. Physiotherapists use special games and exercises that are both fun and developmental for children.

For school-age children:

It can help children develop correct posture, prevent scoliosis and rehabilitate sports injuries. Physiotherapists can advise children to increase their physical activity and reduce sitting time.

For adults:

It can help adults treat back pain, neck pain, joint pain and sports injuries. Physiotherapists put together an individual program for adults that matches their goals and physical condition.

For the elderly:

It can help seniors improve their balance, maintain mobility and prevent falls. Physiotherapists use special exercises for the elderly to help develop muscle strength and coordination.

Physiotherapy can help not only in the treatment of locomotor problems, but also in improving the general state of health. It can improve well-being and sleep quality, as well as reduce stress.

What is physiotherapy good for and when can it be used?

Physiotherapy is a widely used and safe method that can help with many health problems and injury prevention. Its main goal is to regain mobility, improve the quality of life, increase load capacity and endurance, and restore the functions necessary for everyday life and make them more active. This healing procedure aims to restore, improve or maintain locomotor functions. It is used in many areas, including:

Locomotor injuries: sports injuries, injuries, rehabilitation after surgery

Chronic diseases: arthritis, rheumatic diseases, osteoporosis

Neurological problems: Parkinson’s disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, neuropathies

Other problems: pain, balance disorders, incontinence, scoliosis

Physiotherapists use various techniques during physiotherapy, including hanging grid therapy, mobilization and stretching, strengthening, manual therapy, and physical therapy treatments (e.g. electrotherapy, ultrasound treatment, laser treatment, magnetic therapy).

When can physiotherapy be used?

Every case, every patient is different, the method and time of treatment must be decided individually by specialists and physiotherapists. Physiotherapy methods are generally effective in the case of pain resulting from most musculoskeletal diseases (back pain, lower back pain, or neck pain resulting from some form of deformity, injury, wear, or inflammation).

Physiotherapy can also be used for neurological, orthopedic, traumatological and rheumatological complaints.

Types of Physical Therapy

Passive Techniques

Important for maintaining joint range of motion, preventing contractures, enhancing blood circulation, boosting cartilage metabolism, alleviating pain, and preserving proprioception.

  •   Appropriate positioning
  •   Passive mobilization
  •   Various soft tissue techniques
  •   Therapeutic massage

Active Techniques

Enable strengthening of muscles – gradually increasing joint range of motion, enhancing circulation, developing proprioception and coordination.

Transfer Techniques

Include methods primarily for changing positions such as sitting up, transferring, and teaching walking. Physical therapists also train patients in the use of primarily mobility-enhancing assistive devices.

What is suspension grid physical therapy and when is it applicable?

Suspension grid is a tool used in physical therapy and is highly effective during rehabilitation treatments. Like hydrotherapy, it allows working with the limbs and the torso in a weight-relieved position.

During suspension grid therapies, various belts and ropes are used to achieve this weight-relieved position, which allows for positioning, mobilizing, and strengthening the affected body part. Suspension grid therapy is particularly significant in the rehabilitation of neurological patients, as unloading is crucial for initiating movement in paralyzed limbs. However, the suspension grid is not only essential in neurorehabilitation but also effectively used in trauma, rheumatology, orthopedics, and even for athletes. It can also achieve positive changes in chronic pain conditions (back pain, neck pain, lower back pain, arthritis) and other issues (spinal curvature, herniated discs, balance disorders, coordination disorders).

Its effectiveness lies in the ability to perform trunk and limb movements even in a weight-relieved position.

Using belts, ropes, and the grid system, weakened muscles can be strengthened.

For paralyzed limbs, the affected body part’s mobilization and positioning can be achieved more easily and effectively.

Who is it recommended for?

Suspension grid treatment can be recommended for many people; here are a few examples:

  • Those recovering from injuries or surgery: It can aid in unloading, improving range of motion, and increasing muscle strength during rehabilitation.
  • Those suffering from chronic pain: It can effectively alleviate back pain, neck pain, lower back pain, and pain caused by arthritis.
  • Those with balance issues: It can improve balance and coordination, thus reducing the risk of falls.
  • Those looking to improve their posture: It strengthens back and core muscles, improving posture.
  • Those looking to relieve stress: It has a relaxing effect, helping to reduce stress.
  • Athletes: It can help athletes improve their performance by increasing muscle strength, flexibility, and balance.

Suspension grid therapy is a method applicable to virtually anyone, but in certain cases, our specialists proceed with greater caution or may limit its use, e.g., joint instability, restricted joint mobility, significantly increased or decreased muscle tone, or severely mobility-restricted patients.

TYMO®

TYMO® is a balance-enhancing device equipped with sensors. The system connects to a screen and offers virtual reality games that adapt to the patient’s functional capacity. The therapist decides based on the recommended games which dimension (antero-posterior or medio-lateral) or two dimensions (combining antero-posterior and medio-lateral movements) to work in. An unstable surface, such as a sponge or tilting board, can be placed under the interface to complicate the tasks. TYMO® allows patients to perform various movements in a sitting or standing position, such as weight shifting or stationary walking. The robot continuously provides feedback to the participants, facilitating movement development. During therapy, patients shift their weight through the TYMO® panel and control games running on the monitor (Maranesi et al., 2020).

Develops sitting and standing balance, postural control, and facilitates practicing two-handed support. TYMO® is a device capable of analyzing the transfer of the body’s center of mass; it also compares the symmetry of active weight distribution and provides a quantitative assessment of static postural control and balance (Mansfield et al., 2013; Ostrowska et al., 2022).

 

ReStore Soft Exo-Suit

The ReStore exoskeleton is a specialized device developed for the rehabilitation of hemiparetic patients. The exoskeleton, worn on the lower limb, assists movement. The ReStore exoskeleton primarily enhances the walking pattern by facilitating ankle and knee movements during walking, making the walking pattern more natural and energy-efficient. By facilitating these movements, not only can the walking pattern be improved, but indirectly, balance and limb loading can be developed, and the frequency of falls can be reduced.

Versatile

The device’s features and parameters can be varied in multiple ways, making the ReStore exoskeleton widely applicable among hemiparetic patients.

Data-driven

During therapy, the therapist can monitor and analyze the data in real time using an application and optimize joint movements.

How does ReStore work?

The exoskeleton is directed by sensors and cables powered by a battery. Sensors mounted on the lower limbs detect the walking phase of the respective limb, thus timely directing the movement of the paretic limb.

In addition to sensors, a cable runs on the anterior and posterior surfaces of the paretic limb. The contraction of the cable running on the posterior surface provides plantarflexion movement (ankle downward movement), while the cable on the anterior surface is responsible for dorsiflexion movement (ankle upward movement). The cables can be used in both taut and loose positions, thus allowing for a variety of exercise tasks.

Important

A comprehensive physiotherapeutic assessment and a consultation always precede the use of ReStore. The robot’s use requires the patient to meet several conditions.In cases where the patient meets all criteria and parameters, therapy can begin under the supervision of professionals.

ReWalk Personal 6.0 Robotic Exoskeleton

A personalized walking aid.

With the help of the Rewalk Personal 6.0 Exoskeleton and a special crutch, people living with lower limb paralysis as a result of an accident can become able to stand, walk, turn around, or even climb stairs. The ReWalk system provides the possibility of independent walking, however, it is not suitable for sports or vigorous exercise.

Important

In all cases, the use of ReWalk is preceded by a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment and consultation. In order to use the robot, a given patient must meet a number of conditions. If the patient meets all criteria and parameters, therapy can begin under the supervision of specialists.

Targeted healing and relaxation: Discover effective reflexology foot massage at Szent Vincent Rehabilitation Center

Reflexology foot massage plays a very important role in maintaining health. Through this, we can mobilize the body’s own energies in order to maintain well-being and health.

By massaging certain points or zones of the body, the functioning of certain organs can be improved, pain can be alleviated, or in many cases completely eliminated. In a healthy person, life energy flows unhindered and is distributed equally throughout the body. If the flow of energy is blocked for a long time, health is at risk.

With the help of the reflexology foot massage, such a blockage can be removed, and thus the energy system is restored to balance. During the reflexology foot massage, we work on a miniature copy of the person on the feet, and through the energy connections we have an effect on the health, physical and mental functioning of the person.

During rehabilitation, it is not only important to improve the physical condition, but also to protect and support mental health. Both the clients and the relatives presumably experienced a crisis situation in connection with the illness or injury: the sudden loss, the experience of loss of control, a significant change in their living conditions, damage to their physical integrity. In the case of clients in crisis and their relatives, it is very important to receive spiritual support as early as possible, which is closely intertwined with the development of the resources necessary for physical recovery.

Individual mental health support conversation or individual life coaching for clients and relatives.

The purpose of the individual sessions is to mobilize the clients’ resources, reduce stress, promote crisis support, orientation to the present and the future, and reduce emotional isolation and loneliness.

Framework: 1 session of 60 minutes, recommended on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, a total of 5-10 sessions as agreed or longer-term cooperation.

Ecotherapy-oriented mental health sessions (e.g., “forest bathing”)

As part of the individual support conversations, it is possible to participate in a consultation outside the natural environment in addition to the indoor, “classic” support conversation. In this case, nature is present as a place of peace and as an active co-helper. During the session, by practicing conscious presence, awareness of bodily sensations and feelings, we help deepen the connection with nature. All this helps the client to look at his own life situation from a new perspective and draw strength from the patterns of continuous change.

Framework: outdoor venue by arrangement (Botanical Garden, Rotary Trail, etc.), 60-90 minutes depending on physical condition. Alternating between walking and resting.

HAHET Horse-assisted self-awareness training, experience workshop (www.hahet.hu)

During the HAHET trainings and experience workshops, clients (and their relatives) can experience the joy of being with a horse. The sessions are tailored to the individual (and the family), and their goal is enjoyment, recreation, and mental health support for the family as a whole through new, exciting outdoor riding experiences.

Framework: about 1.5 hours, Location: Domaszék, Tiszasziget.

Facilitation of self-help groups – for clients and relatives.

Self-help groups allow us to experience that we are not alone. The essential element of participation is social support, through which group members can count on mutual emotional support, sympathy, useful information, a sense of belonging and even concrete, tangible help from each other.

Framework: biweekly/monthly 2-2.5 hour group discussion

What is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique that stimulates areas covered by the skull.

It uses electrical signals for neural communication; however, communication can be disrupted due to injury. The device creates a magnetic field using a copper coil, which generates an electric current that positively influences the functioning of nerve cells.

TMS is widely used and applied using different protocols based on the specific indications.

Purpose of TMS Treatment:

The goal of transcranial magnetic stimulation is to address and reduce motor symptoms arising from various neurological disorders, cerebral circulation disorders, brain and skull injuries, and neurodegenerative diseases.

The effects of TMS, adjusted according to individual needs, are evident both in the short and long term. Short-term effects include normalization of muscle tone and improvement in motor functions. These factors contribute to sustainable musculoskeletal development and significantly enhance patients’ quality of life.

Numerous scientific studies and reviews indicate that TMS can be an effective adjunct to motor rehabilitation (Etoh et al., 2013; Liepert et al., 2007; Miniussi et al., 2008).

How does ASA M6 MLS Laser Therapy work?

High-Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is a modern therapeutic method that uses lasers to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate the healing process. HILT emits high-energy, pulsating laser beams that penetrate deeply into tissues, stimulating cell activity and speeding up the healing process.

The ASA M6 MLS laser therapy device (Multiwave Locked System) emits a homogeneous laser from six laser sources, providing immediate deep effects. The laser reduces the permeability of cell walls to ions involved in nerve stimulation and pain signal transmission. The treatment head’s 3D positioning can be supplemented with two additional probes, increasing its efficiency for treating small to medium-sized areas.

The device’s main robotic head is controlled via an advanced user interface, requiring only therapist supervision for safe, efficient, and autonomous treatment after setting parameters and monitoring patient progress. This technology is part of the latest generation, making it one of the most modern elements of our equipment park. Given the emphasis on social distancing due to the viral situation, this device was designed with that detail in mind. There is no need for physical contact between the patient and either the doctor or the device itself, thus minimizing the risk of infection.

Magnetic therapy, similar to laser therapy, produces a pulsating effect at extremely low frequencies, penetrating deeply into the body to affect muscle fibers, bones, and nerves.

The ASA Easy Quattro Pro is ergonomically designed and easy to use, thanks to its innovative construction.

It can treat any part of the body, from the spine to the limbs and even the brain. Its magnetic field is generated along the body’s longitudinal axis using magnetic valves, or perpendicularly using Flexa applicators.

The Easy Quattro Pro allows for five different positioning settings, serving various treatment areas and can be combined to address multiple issues at once. These settings are particularly effective for localized treatment needs due to their flexibility. Optional accessories can be attached, allowing for up to four beds to be interconnected, two of which operate in automatic mode. In the automatic version, an electromechanical system places the magnetic valves on the treatment area automatically via a specialized microprocessor, then returns to the starting position at the end of therapy, saving time for the therapist.

In the manual version of the ASA Easy Quattro Pro, the valves can be easily moved along aluminum guides equipped with safety locks to prevent unintended movement. The device alerts with a sound at the start and end of the treatment. All this occurs in the utmost comfort for the patient, who remains in a lying position.

This therapy can be freely combined with other treatments to accelerate healing. It is a painless, fast, and effective therapy that provides substantial aid in treating bone and joint issues, tendon changes, inflammations, fractures, and even migraines. It is also suitable for intensive stimulation of the immune system. Thus, it significantly aids various fields such as physiotherapy, rheumatology, sports medicine, orthopedics, traumatology, and geriatrics.

Magnetic signals are not interfered with by various belts, casts, external or internal fixation devices, only requiring a special assessment. Additionally, the comfort is enhanced by the fact that it is not necessary to undress for the treatment, as it remains effective through clothing, avoiding any discomfort for the patient.

Carbon dioxide therapy is based on the mofetta effect. Mofetta is a geological phenomenon related to volcanic activity, where gas rich in carbon dioxide erupts from deep within the soil. Naturally occurring mofettas have been known for centuries and have been used for their observed beneficial effects. These natural dry mofettas contain a mix of gases including methane, nitrogen, oxygen, and radon isotopes, predominantly carbon dioxide, which is recognized for its beneficial effects. Utilizing special devices, carbon dioxide dry baths are also made available at designated service locations.

During the treatment with carbon dioxide gas, the gas enters the circulation through the skin, not only improving general well-being but also helping conditions where increased local blood flow and tissue oxygenation through improved microcirculation are expected. Additionally, the general vasodilatory effect of carbon dioxide is beneficial for the body’s functioning.

The absorbed gas causes local blood vessels in the skin to dilate, enhancing capillary circulation and increasing blood flow speed. These hemodynamic changes are well demonstrated by capillary microscopy, but the peripheral vascular reaction during the “bath” can also be visibly observed on the skin surface. The increase in blood volume flowing through the skin capillaries is rapid and significant, beginning around the 7th to 8th minute of treatment and peaking between the 10th and 20th minutes. The effects are a result of both absorbed and inhaled CO2. The surface temperature of the body can increase by 1.6 to 4 degrees Celsius, indicating the dilation of subcutaneous capillaries.

The general effect of the carbon dioxide absorbed through the skin on circulation includes dilation of the vessels and the dissolution of carbon dioxide in the blood plasma. Approximately 15 minutes after treatment, a noticeable and measurable increase in blood flow speed can be observed. The venous blood and lymph return also intensifies as more blood circulates within the system.

The favorable effects of the carbon dioxide dry bath can be utilized as complementary treatments for certain vascular and musculoskeletal conditions, as well as to prevent or supplement treatments for persistent diabetes-related circulatory conditions. It can be stated that the increased tissue circulation, improved oxygenation, venous and lymph flow enhancement can potentially improve the blood supply to all organs.

The effects manifest as increased local blood flow and subsequent tissue oxygenation, which can be beneficial for chronic wound treatment, ischemia, revascularization, prevention of peripheral arterial diseases, improving microcirculation and oxygen supply in the skin, and generally in areas of musculoskeletal rehabilitation (such as bruised joints, injuries, regeneration, and improving tissue oxygenation).

What to Know About the Treatment

The dry carbon dioxide treatment is conducted similarly to natural mofettas, in loose clothing. Carbon dioxide gas flows into the cabin in a controlled manner, maintaining a consistent concentration. During and after the treatment, the body’s blood vessels slightly dilate, improving blood circulation and decreasing blood pressure, while also causing the skin’s capillaries to expand, resulting in a pleasant warmth.

What is the Mofetta Effect?

Mofetta is a geological phenomenon linked to volcanic activity, where gas rich in carbon dioxide erupts from deep within the earth. Naturally occurring mofettas, known for centuries and used for their beneficial effects based on observations, are found in places like Kovászna, Tusnádfürdő, Bálványos, Balnas, Hargitafürdő, Buziasfürdő, Borsa, and Oláhszentgyörgy in Romania.

Special devices also make carbon dioxide dry baths available at designated service locations.

When is Carbon Dioxide Treatment Recommended?

The therapy should always be prescribed by a physician, ideally requiring participation in ten treatments within a month following medical indication.

The treatment is advised for:

  • Lower limb arterial circulation issues (non-healing leg ulcers, sensory disturbances, leg cramps)
  • Claudication (pain caused by too little blood flow during exercise)
  • Peripheral venous diseases and lymphatic circulation disorders
  • Vascular diseases associated with diabetes and neuropathies
  • Accelerating healing after trauma
  • Skin diseases caused by poor circulation
  • Erectile dysfunction

When is Carbon Dioxide Dry Bath Not Recommended or Prohibited?

  • Under 150 cm in height
  • Under 18 years of age
  • In febrile conditions
  • Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • In acute illnesses
  • In infectious diseases
  • During menstruation

Generally, in cases where a warm water bath is not advised. Health conditions that exclude treatment are listed in Annex 3 of the 5/2004. (XI. 19.) EüM regulation.

How is the Treatment Conducted?

The recommended duration for a carbon dioxide dry bath is generally 20-30 minutes. While the effects of a single treatment can be felt, for desired results, treatments are recommended in courses of 10-15 sessions, which should be repeated every six months.

The device can be used in light clothing without shoes. Carbon dioxide easily penetrates the clothing, so only thicker garments need to be removed, while light clothing does not affect the effectiveness.

General Effects of Carbon Dioxide Absorbed Through the Skin and Entering the Circulation

The general effect of carbon dioxide absorbed through the skin on circulation includes the dilation of blood vessels and the effects of carbon dioxide that has entered and dissolved in the blood plasma. Approximately 15 minutes after treatment, an increase in the speed of blood flow can be significantly felt and measured. In the body, the return flow of venous blood and lymph also increases because more blood is circulating.

The beneficial effects of the carbon dioxide dry bath can be utilized based on medical recommendations for supplementary treatments related to vascular and musculoskeletal conditions, as well as for preventing or complementing treatments for persistent conditions of diabetes-related circulatory issues. It can be stated that the increased tissue circulation, improved oxygenation, and enhanced venous and lymph flow consequently improve the blood supply to all organs.

The effects manifest in increased local blood flow and subsequent tissue oxygenation, which can be beneficial for treating chronic wounds, ischemia, revascularization, preventing peripheral arterial diseases, improving microcirculation and oxygen supply in the skin, and generally in areas of musculoskeletal rehabilitation (such as bruising, injuries, regeneration of joints, and improvement of tissue oxygenation).

Refreshment and Healing with the Power of Water: Discover the Effects of Hydrotherapy at the Szent Vincent Rehabilitation Center

Hydrotherapy is a widespread medical procedure in our country, which is performed using water that does not contain significant minerals. Unlike balneotherapy, hydrotherapy does not utilize the chemical properties of water, but rather its physical properties such as buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and temperature.

At the Saint Vincent Rehabilitation Center, we offer combined, multifunctional hydrotherapy baths that can perform:

  • Mechanical energy-associated hydrotherapy treatments – underwater jet massage, also known as tangential therapy,
  • Carbon dioxide bath treatments,
  • Specialized full-body water-based electro-galvanic treatments, excluding the head.

Underwater Jet Massage/Tangential

This treatment is performed in water of indifferent temperature using a device called a tangential. The strength of the water jet can be adjusted in several aspects (pressure, angle of incidence, distance) depending on how intensely the tissues need to be relaxed or massaged. The greater the pressure, the stronger and deeper the effect. The treatment time typically ranges from 20 to 30 minutes and can cover the whole body or just specific body parts.

Tangential therapy can be successfully used for:

  • Pain relief,
  • Improving blood and lymphatic circulation,
  • Reducing muscle tone or relieving muscle cramps.

Indications for Tangential Therapy:

  • Early or late rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries,
  • Scar treatment,
  • Relaxing muscles – as muscle tension is much less underwater, the deep impact of the water jet is more effective,
  • Enhancing the condition of athletes as part of sports rehabilitation.

Hydrogalvan

Hydrogalvan treatment, developed in the early 1900s and increasingly used in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, combines electrotherapy and hydrotherapy. During the treatment, electrodes placed in the bath or limb bath water conduct galvanic current. In a full electric bath, the current enters the entire body surface, excluding the head. During the treatment, three effects are active: the galvanic current, the temperature of the water, and the chemical effects of minerals dissolved in the water. Indifferent water temperatures of 34-35 degrees Celsius are used during the treatment, which is optimal considering skin resistance. This method is primarily used for its pain-relieving, vasodilatory, circulation-enhancing, metabolic-improving, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Most Common Indications:

  • Chronic rheumatic diseases – multiple joint involvement
  • Osteoporosis supplemented with calcium stasis
  • Neuralgia (nerve pain), neuritis (nerve inflammation)
  • Chronic joint issues
  • Post-injury rehabilitation

Contraindications:

  • Factors predisposing to thrombosis
  • Pacemaker
  • Acute circulatory disorders
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin injuries
  • Lack of cooperation due to psychological involvement
  • Bone marrow inflammation, tuberculosis, malignant diseases
  • Implanted metal devices
