Osteoarthritis and rheumatic diseases: diffusion and symptoms

Rheumatic diseases, in their various manifestations, affect about 2 out of 10 people, mainly women. One of the most common forms is osteoarthritis, a chronic degenerative disease that mostly occurs with advancing age, because it is linked to the wear and tear of the joints.

The main symptoms are pain and decreased mobility caused by the wear and tear of the articular cartilage. Cartilage is consumed when incorrect postures and improper use of the joints lead the bones to rub against each other, for this reason, the most affected parts are those most stressed by weight and activity: knees and hands, and also shoulders, feet and back.  All are areas where pain and difficulty are often concentrated. But is it possible to feel good? Of course, there are very ancient treatments with proven scientific value that offer immediate relief.


Treat osteoarthritis with mud therapy at Abano Terme

One should bear in mind, first and foremost, pharmacological approaches to the treatment of rheumatic diseases. However, it should be remembered that anti-inflammatory drugs should be taken in limited quantities to avoid causing side effects to the body. Combining medication with thermal mud therapy is an exceptional opportunity to relieve pain, and the benefits it can bring are invaluable.

Mud therapy is a specific therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatic and related pains whose origin is lost in an ancient tradition that dates back to the time of the Roman Empire and beyond. The effectiveness of thermal mud is scientifically recognised for its ability to soothe pain and reduce inflammatory reactions.

The thermal clay of Abano Terme, rich in minerals and unique physical and chemical properties, it is highly effective in treating osteoarthritis. Even from the first sessions, the treatment gives more mobility, and the complete cycle of 12 days of mud application has incredible benefits.

First, the high heat causes the release of hormones with anti-inflammatory (cortisol) and analgesic effects (endorphins). Furthermore, the immune system is stimulated and, according to recent studies, it seems that cartilage regrowth is also stimulated.

Mud therapy has another important advantage: the benefits are immediate and long-lasting, while the side effects caused by the drugs are absent. And, from the very first applications, you’ll be amazed at the relief that the mud therapy will bring to your body and the relaxation with which you can enjoy your well-deserved holiday at the Hotel Tritone of Abano Terme.
