On a spa vacation focusing on the musculoskeletal system, experts diagnose the specific causes of your problems and provide targeted guidance and individual assistance as to which measures can provide you with relief or even a cure. In this way, a health vacation will literally put you back in shape - and in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, you'll be in fantastic surroundings to boot.
Get fit with the power of nature
Natural remedies such as moor or brine are part of the therapy plan in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania for slipped discs, lumbago, back pain and other indications related to the musculoskeletal system. The costs for many of these treatments and for individual pain therapies are covered or partially subsidized by the health insurance.
In the case of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, mud packs and thick mud baths support the healing process. With its valuable ingredients, the well-known mud has an anti-inflammatory and thus pain-relieving effect on joints, spine and muscles. Mud baths and packs also provide relief for back and neck pain and rheumatic complaints. Depending on the indication, there are applications with cold or heated mud. For example, inflammatory joint pain can be treated well with cold mud packs, while certain back pain can be treated with warm mud packs.
Brine baths and floating
Many places in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offer thermal or seawater swimming pools with salty water. The separate brine pools contain water with a salt content of at least 1.5 percent to promote circulation and relieve inflammation. When the water reaches a salinity of about 20 percent, the body experiences tremendous buoyancy in this strong brine, which makes floating baths, or floating, possible. Weightless floating has a relaxing effect on all muscle groups and at the same time relieves pain in diseases of the back, spine and joints.
Aquagymnastics is a particularly gentle form of physical activity despite back pain, aching joints or ligaments. In the pleasantly tempered water, the natural buoyancy reduces one's own body weight and thus relieves the entire musculoskeletal system. This way, strength and flexibility can be trained under the expert guidance of a therapist, even if your back, joints or neck are aching. In addition, aqua gymnastics, which is easy on the joints, improves general fitness, activates the cardiovascular system and increases calorie turnover for increased fat burning.
Walking and cycling
Exercise supports the healing process for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, with its predominantly flat landscape, invites you to go on cycling or hiking tours that do not overtax you and can therefore be managed comfortably. Well-developed cycling and hiking trails lead through unspoiled countryside and dense forests, past manor houses and fieldstone churches or connect the highlights in the national parks on the Bodden, lake district and Baltic coast. Hiking and biking can relieve back pain and joint pain because exercise releases tension, strengthens muscles and revitalizes the entire organism.
