Introductory examination by a doctor

After checking into the spa hotel, the patient must undergo an initial medical examination. The doctor clarifies the diagnosis, if necessary, with the help of laboratory tests (general blood test) and medical examinations (x-ray, densometric examination), studies the dynamics of the disease and prescribes an individual course of treatment, which consists of a set of procedures. The treatment course includes a combination of therapeutic techniques using natural healing factors (thermal mineral water and sulfur mud). It is recommended to bring with you the available results of tests, medical examinations, the opinion of the attending physician (no later than six months ago) - this will save time and money on medical examinations at the resort.

The main directions of treatment are:

Hydrotherapy. The main procedures are visiting the pool with 100% natural thermal water, thermal baths, underwater traction of the spine and rehabilitation exercises in the pool. Sulfur and minerals contained in thermal water tend to be actively absorbed into the skin and connective tissues (fiber, cartilage, tendons), preventing the degradation of cartilage tissue. Sulfur also has a vasodilator and antiseptic effect.

In spa hotels of Piestany very effectively do underwater traction of the spine, which is carried out in thermal mineral water with a temperature of 38 °C. Under the influence of warm water, the muscles relax and, under their own weight, the patient's spine gradually stretches. Sometimes it is advisable to use additional weights, which are usually mounted on the legs or torso. Underwater traction allows you to relieve excessive pressure in the intervertebral discs, helps to reduce small intervertebral hernias and the return of displaced intervertebral discs to their natural position, relieves pain.

Drinking course is practiced in Piestany as an additional procedure. Thermal water comes to the surface with temperatures up to 60 °C, has a specific smell of hydrogen sulfide, contains calcium, magnesium and other useful minerals. Piestany water is indicated for gastric diseases, dyspeptic syndrome, hyperchlorhydria, cholecystopathy, catarrh of the upper respiratory tract, chronic cystitis, nephrolithiasis, hyperuricemia, gout, anorexia, diabetes mellitus, prostatic hypertrophy. It is recommended that you drink water directly from a spring of 200 ml three times a day before meals. There are contraindications, be sure to consult your doctor.


Mud therapy. The main treatment procedures are a mud pool and mud applications. Healing mud, as well as thermal water, saturates the cartilage, connective tissue and intervertebral discs with useful trace elements. During the mud procedures, blood vessels dilate, blood pressure decreases, muscle hypertonicity is removed, blood circulation is enhanced, pain syndrome goes away. Mud applications also help to reduce tumors around the joints, contribute to an increase in anti-inflammatory activity of the body. Mud procedures at the Piestany resort are carried out using technology that is almost never used at many other resorts. In particular, in the mud pool, Piestany sulfur mud is mixed with 100% natural thermal mineral water, which enhances its healing properties.

Mud applications are carried out by directly applying therapeutic mud to the patient's body. The temperature of the mud depends on the doctor’s prescriptions, which gives them based on a study of the patient’s cardiac activity, the degree of the disease itself, and individual tolerance of the mud procedure. The intensity of the mud procedures at any time can be adjusted by the doctor based on the dynamics of the patient’s health status.

In addition, mud kinesiotherapy is considered to be a very effective procedure, when the patient puts his hands in the healing mud and does a set of exercises. This procedure allows you to develop joints and relieve pain.

Mud therapy

Physiotherapy. Individual and group physiotherapy, massage, physiotherapy in the pool are the most important part of the treatment of the musculoskeletal system diseases. These procedures allow you to unload or strengthen certain muscle groups, increase joint mobility. An important component of physiotherapy is kinesitherapy – it is a complex of special rehabilitation techniques that help people with limited physical abilities restore motor functions, improve the condition of the musculoskeletal system.

For this, the "Balneo" treatment center has a special room that mimics the interior of a residential apartment, where an experienced physiotherapist is involved with patients, developing the motor activity of their hands, which is necessary for full life.
