    2 DOLENJSKE TOPLICE HEALTH RESORT

    Dolenjske Toplice health resort has a rich tradition. It is one of the oldest health resorts in Europe.

    Positive effects of thermal water have been known for centuries at Dolenjske Toplice Spa. Two out of three thermal water springs at Dolenjske Toplice are located directly under the indoor pools, Prince’s and Cave’s bath at the Vital Hotel. The water springs from a depth of almost a thousand metres with a flow of 30 litres per second. The water is acratothermal with the temperature of 36 °C and it is low-mineralised, containing mostly calcium, magnesium and hydrogen carbonate. In the opinion of the physicians who first wrote about it, the Dolenjske Toplice health resort was an important health resort, especially for the treatment of rheumatic diseases and women’s diseases as well as the rehabilitation of the disabled. Over the time, the old swimming pool complex has developed into a state-of-the-art centre for medical rehabilitation. In addition to thermal water, a range of procedures and methods of physical and rehabilitation medicine with emphasis on kinesiotherapy is included in the treatment.

    Natural resources and professional knowledge at Dolenjske Toplice health resort are complemented by the caring and kind approach towards guests. It seems that this well-designed combination is what people need when their health is at risk because of an unhealthy lifestyle. In addition to rehabilitation of patients with rheumatic disorders, musculoskeletal injuries, surgical procedures on reproductive organs and breast surgery, and rehabilitation after central and peripheral nervous system disorders, many other activities have been developed to support good physical and mental health and wellbeing. The guests can choose between various modern wellness services and gain energy in the beautiful landscape.

    3 ŠMARJEŠKE TOPLICE HEALTH RESORT

    Šmarješke Toplice health resort is a tectonic spa. Many little warm thermal springs have filled a tiny valley and turned it into a proper thermal lake.

    In the past, the resort was known as the Jezerske Toplice (Lake Spa). Nowadays, the springs are channelled into the indoor and outdoor pools. The earliest reference to the healing effect of the water at Šmarješke Toplice health resort dates 200 years ago. The spring with the water temperature of 32 ˚C has a medicinal effect. Thermal water is hypoacratothermal and rich with calcium, magnesium and hydrogen carbonate. The spa’s medical team use it for treating cardiovascular diseases, rehabilitation of sports injuries and rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system diseases and injuries.

    3 BACK PAIN TREATMENT WITH GAMMA SWING (AVAILABLE AT DOLENJSKE TOPLICE HEALTH RESORT)

    The Gamma Swing treatment, which combines back extension with swinging movement, was developed by a famous orthopaedist, Ferdinand Gundolf, MD, from the Orthopaedic Clinic in Innsbruck and it is successfully used at our spa. This new and effective treatment helps relieve the damaged intervertebral discs and reduce the pain.

    A special device for spinal extension

    During the procedure, the patient is gradually pulled up into the air by means of specially upholstered swings, which are fixed along the distal portion of the lower leg. Gentle extension of muscles and ligaments and relaxation of intervertebral joints as well as decompression in the area of the intervertebral discs is achieved with elastic suspension. The Gamma Swing treatment also has a positive effect on leg relief which is particularly welcome in patients with varicose veins and lymphatic swelling.

    The programme includes:

    • 3x Gamma Swing treatment,
    • 6x per week medical gymnastics,
    • 5x per week pain relief therapy,

The aim of the programme is to restore the normal movement of the knee joint.

    Most of the injuries of the lower extremity bones are treated surgically. Surgery due either to wearing-off or injury should be followed by quality rehabilitation. It is mandatory that the correct walking pattern is restored which is achieved with the help of prompts (crutches, stilt).

We use state-of-the-art methods of physical and rehabilitation medicine as well as the beneficial effects of thermal water for hydrotherapy as soon as the condition allows.

    10 STROKE REHABILITATION (AVAILABLE AT DOLENJSKE TOPLICE HEALTH RESORT AND ŠMARJEŠKE TOPLICE HEALTH RESORT)

We try to take advantage of the patient’s other abilities and gradually improve the endurance, strength, and flexibility, and achieve independence in movement and activities of daily living.

    Early or immediate rehabilitation is of key importance and it enables numerous patients to gain independence. It is known that improvement of motor recuperation is the largest during the first 12 weeks after the occurrence of a stroke.
