The medical SPA Eglės sanatorija in Druskininkai with broad rehabilitation and treatment experience accumulated over the years formed a special medical SPA treatment-rehabilitation programme for their guests who had COVID-19 and is ready to accept the guests who want to get better right now. The essence of the programme is to help the body to recover the damaged functions faster: “This virus affects our genetic information and may affect more severely one of these systems: respiratory, nerve or cardiovascular. By helping the patient, we will focus on supplying the cells with oxygen and aim at quick body recovery. In order to do that, we will use two brand new medical devices: the apparatus “RespiCare” for improving respiration, and ozone therapy device for the body to take in the oxygen,” says the Doctor, Director for Medicine of the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija Arvydas Balčius.
The programme is made of a group of 5 therapeutic treatments: physiotherapy, therapeutic bath, therapeutic massage, physical agent modalities, and relaxation treatment. Upon arrival to the medical SPA, first of all, the doctor consults a patient, during the consultation, spirometry is performed (functional examination of lungs) and detailed analysis of the patient’s condition, the most suitable treatments are applied. The program is formed in accordance with the recommendations of the WHO, upon preparing for the international seminar, the employees went through the training as well.
5 treatments per day are prescribed for the patient, for example: individual physiotherapy, during which the physiotherapist will pay all their attention to the patient, they will teach them correct breathing exercises. According to the doctor, it is important, that the patient, while performing the exercises, would pay their attention here and now comprehending them slowly and precisely is essential.
The second treatment – a bath of dry carbonic acid with the oxygen therapy. It is a new combination of two treatments to get the most effective result. Upon the effect of the dry carbonic acid, blood vessels widen stimulating better blood circulation, therefore, it significantly improves vascular activity, the body receives more oxygen. According to A. Balčius, that is an essential factor because breathing is the main engine of energy, and breathing is oxygen.
The third procedure – a therapeutic massage performed by the specialist and using the bed “Wellsystem Medical Plus” filled with water. According to the Doctor A. Balčius, when lying on this bed, the person can stretch more, likewise, the thorax and lungs open, they get more air, as well as the blood cells.
The fourth treatment procedure – physical agent modalities: electrostimulation, diaphragm stimulation, magnetic therapy, halotherapy, ultrasound therapy and other. The doctor decides individually which treatment(s) to prescribe for the patient because each individual experience different aftereffects of COVID-19.
The fifth but no less important treatment – relaxation: “In the medical SPA, sometimes we hear people saying that relaxation treatments are unnecessary, however, such presumption is wrong. No processes happen in the body without the participation of the nerve system and the cerebral cortex – everything is interconnected. Relaxation treatments are necessary for activating the recovery processes in the body. It is essential to understand that our mind is a powerful weapon when dealing with various diseases and in order to get well we should not underestimate it,” explains A. Balčius.
This programme of the medical SPA Eglės sanatorija is currently run only in Druskininkai, it is created for guests who contracted COVID-19 and feel negative virus aftereffects. An individually formed program will help to get better faster and restore damaged body functions. Recommended programme duration from 5 to 14 days.
