To increase the intensity of metabolic processes by 10%, it is enough to increase the tissue temperature by only 1 degree. A rise in temperature by 4-5 degrees allows you to achieve the necessary therapeutic effect.
Specialists of JSC "Medicine" (Clinic of Academician Roitberg) conduct heat therapy sessions lasting from 20 to 30 minutes.
Long-term heating and uniform heat flow
have antispastic and analgesic effects;
enhance blood and lymph circulation, metabolism in tissues.
Heat therapy is used for:
degenerative-dystrophic and inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system;
diseases and injuries of the peripheral nervous system;
the consequences of trauma for the purpose of pain relief;

During the procedure, paraffin and ozokerite are used. The mixture is applied to the area of the body that requires exposure, which is then wrapped in a warm blanket.
