DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCEDURE
Paraffin therapy is a heat treatment method involving melted paraffin in the form of applications, causing a deep warming of the tissues.
HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED?
Paraffin heats up quickly, preserves and gives up the heat for a long time. Liquid paraffin hardens quickly if you apply it to a skin area. A process of further heat transfer to the desired area starts. Paraffin is applied directly to the skin in several layers. Then the treated area is wrapped in polyethylene.
- Painful disorders affecting the back (osteochondrosis, radiculitis, lumbago, back muscles tension).
- Respiratory diseases in chronic form (bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, multiple bronchiectasis, frequent pneumonia).
- Hypertensive disease
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Strengthening of the anterior abdominal wall muscles.
- Headaches, migraines.
- Cervical vertebral osteochondrosis
- Radiculopathy (nerve root syndrome)
- Vegetative-vascular dystonia
- Thoracic spine osteochondrosis
- Chronic respiratory diseases (tracheobronchitis, bronchial asthma).
- Pulmonary engorgement.
- Intercostal neuralgia
- Bacterial, fungal, viral infection of the skin.
- Allergic dermatitis.
- Oncological diseases;
- Severe hypertensive disease.
- Hemorrhagic tendency.
- Acute infectious diseases accompanied by fever.
RESULTS OF THE PROCEDURE
Paraffin applications stimulate trophic and regenerative processes, reduce muscle cramps and relieve pain, providing a reabsorbing anti-inflammatory effect. Solidifying (paraffin crystallization) it decreases in extent by 10-12 %, exerting a mechanical (compressive) effect on the affected tissues.
