The resulting pain caused by the systematic destruction of the joint function (as a result of the reduction of the cartilage layer, partly through overexertion, defective positioning or inflammation) can be successfully relieved through a treatment programme with iodine saline solution. The main cause of arthrotic disorders is being overweight and the defective positioning of the large joints. Spa treatments, in particular the use of iodine saline, can help to alleviate the effects of inflammatory arthrotic musculoskeletal system. The range of treatments offered by the therapy centre includes all active and passive forms of treatment which can be adapted to specific spa treatments in Bad Hall according to the individual diagnosis. A series of active forms of treatment like group gymnastics and individual physiotherapy is also an essential part of successful treatment for arthrotic disorders. Special training programmes are also available to strengthen the muscles after operations, to treat arthrotic disorders and heart and circulation conditions (heart circulation training after a heart attack, peripheral arterial obstructivedisease).
