What effect does radon water have on the musculoskeletal system

- Improves flexibility of joints, muscles and tendons

Safeness of the radon water for health
Jachymov radon water is safe for health! When conducting radon baths, the penetration of radon into the circulatory system is minimal, it does not accumulate in the body, and is naturally eliminated from it within 20 minutes. A full 24-day radiation dose radon therapy course corresponds to one X-Ray of the lung.
However, there are contraindications to the conduct of radon baths and other methods of radon therapy:
- Severe leukopenia (lower 3,5*109 u/L)
- All stages of radiation disease
- Patients, by the nature of the profession, have long been in the sphere of action of radioactive radiation either UHF or SHF
The effect of radon therapy is enhanced by other treatment directions:
Physiotherapy (mobilization of the spine, special physiotherapy exercises in the gym, physical exercises in the pool, massages) is a prerequisite for successful treatment of the musculoskeletal system, as it allows to improve joint mobility, relieve muscle tension, restore muscle tone.
Hydrotherapy (carbon dioxide bath, pearl baths, underwater massage, Charcot's shower), which helps to improve blood circulation, reduce stiffness in joints, relax connective tissues and muscles.
Electrotherapy (magnetotherapy, laser therapy, ultrasound, diathermy, biostimulation) is used to enhance blood circulation and metabolic processes, eliminate pain syndromes, deep tissue warming, eliminate inflammatory processes.
Gas treatment (gas injections, dry carbonic baths). Gas injections are an effective method of eliminating pain syndromes, and dry carbon dioxide baths saturate the body with carbon dioxide СО2, which contributes to stabilization of pressure, improving blood supply, reduction of inflammatory processes in the body.
A unique treatment method is also used in Jachymov – brachiradium therapy. A special box with a spring of weak gamma radiation is superimposed and fixed on the problem place. A low dose of radiation does not affect the cells, but allows you to eliminate inflammatory processes and completely dispose of pain for more than 6 months. This procedure is done only as prescribed by the doctor, and its implementation is supervised by a specialist radiologist.
