Parafango mud treatment
This treatment consists in the application of a mixture of paraffin (para) and mud (fango) containing salts from the thermal water, to specific body areas. It has a thermo-therapeutic effect, transferring a large amount of heat to the deep structures of the body, through local applications to the joints.
The parafango strip has an initial temperature of 45 ºC and it is moulded to cover the desired joint, and then wrapped in a blanket to maintain the heat.
The treatment lasts 15 minutes.
It is primarily indicated for arthrosis, recovery from post surgical procedures and for muscle contracture.
