Vertical bath in Druskininkai
Vertical bath is a physiotherapeutic procedure that is performed to stretch the spine. The procedure is carried out in several cycles: first, under the guidance of a physiotherapist, the patient does several exercises in the water to stretch the back muscles, then the patient hangs on special devices (vertical board, trapezium) and his spine is pulled out under natural body weight. This procedure promotes the release of stranded nerves in the intervertebral discs, has a relief effect on the spine and relieves pain. Vertical baths are contraindicated for patients with large hernias, which, on the recommendation of a physician, should be surgically removed.
