Benefits of Thermal Water

Updated: Apr 25

Healing thermal water, also known as thermal spring water, is widely used in complementary medicine. Among the well-known therapeutic properties of thermal water in many diseases are rheumatic, orthopedic, and skin diseases.


Effect on Rheumatic Disorders

  • Chronic types of rheumatism usually affect the quality of life by causing movement restrictions and pain. Thermal water therapy plays an important role in reducing the complaints of this condition. Thermal water baths under medical supervision contribute to the treatment of chronic lower back pain such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, as well as soft tissue diseases like myositis, tendonitis, and fibromyalgia syndrome.

Orthopedic Disorders

  • Thermal water is used to achieve effective results in the treatment of orthopedic disorders. Thermal water therapy is important in the rehabilitation of joint stiffness after orthopedic surgeries, sequelae resulting from accidents or surgeries, joint stiffening, and muscle stiffness. It also provides effective results in the rapid healing of fractures, correction of post-disease functional disorders, and mobilization treatments after prolonged immobility.

Neurological Disorders

  • The relaxing effect of water yields positive results in the rehabilitation of neurological disorders such as stroke, cerebral palsy, and poliomyelitis. Rehabilitation and treatments performed under specialist supervision are more successful when combined with appropriate environmental conditions. Thermal water also helps alleviate mental and emotional fatigue.

Skin Diseases

  • The effects of hyperthermal thermal waters on the skin facilitate the medical treatment of many skin diseases. Spa waters accelerate superficial blood circulation, leading to positive physicochemical changes in the skin. This contributes to hair structure improvement, providing shine and health, and giving vitality to the skin. By reducing biological cell damage, thermal water slows down the aging process, offering a healthier life for everyone.

Cerebrovascular Diseases

  • In the rehabilitation of stroke sequelae, treatment of stress-related disorders, and general stress disorders, the balneological effects of thermal water, along with integrations such as massage, are successfully used within the scope of 'Wellness.' Healing results are also obtained in conditions such as hemiplegia and paraplegia.

Nephrological Diseases

  • Thermal water has positive effects in the treatment of nephrological diseases involving the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract. Thermal water supports the process of detoxification by increasing the amount of blood filtered from the kidneys. Thus, it helps in the treatment of kidney stones, intestinal and urinary tract diseases, and conditions such as cystitis.

Inflammations

  • Thermal water provides positive effects in the treatment of inflammation-related disorders such as inflammations spreading along the nerves, nerve ending inflammations, tendonitis, and synovitis.

Osteoarthritis, Muscle Pains, and Sciatica

  • Thermal water is used as an effective method in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Additionally, it is effective in reducing muscle pains and complaints of sciatica.

Respiratory System Diseases

  • Thermal water provides benefits for the treatment of respiratory system diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, allergic upper respiratory tract diseases, and pneumoconiosis.
