Paraffin applications in Marianske Lazne
The thermal procedure, which is carried out using a white dehydrated, paraffin-free medical paraffin, melted in a water bath to a temperature of 50-65 °С. Paraffin has a high heat capacity and high thermal conductivity. In the area of paraffin application, the temperature of the underlying tissues increases by 1-3 °, as a result of which, due to the expansion of capillaries, the blood flow increases. Skin hyperemia enhances the metabolism of underlying tissues, accelerates the resorption of infiltrates and tissue repair in the lesion. Paraffin baths stimulate trophic and regenerative processes, reduce muscle spasms, pain, have a resolving anti-inflammatory effect. They are used in the treatment of injuries and fractures of the musculoskeletal system, arthritis and arthrosis, central and peripheral nervous systems, diseases of the internal organs and respiratory organs, gynecological, urological, skin and gastroenterological diseases.
