Pain relief for muscles and joints

  • Rheumatism
  • Primary chronic polyarthritis
  • Degenerative spinal and joint diseases
  • Contusions, sprains and strains 

In cases of rheumatism, Speltenbach HEALING SALT has an anti-inflammatory and paregoric effect on the muscles and joints. The improved metabolism within the muscle tissue leads to a faster reduction of waste substances and acidity. Studies also prove that there is a positive effect on primary chronic polyarthritis, degenerative joint diseases and on spinal syndromes that are accompanied by pain relief, an increase in strength and joint mobility. For the inflammatory forms of chronic-rheumatic diseases, too, salt baths are preferred as a treamtent as they are classified as being the “mildest” bath treatments.    

Therapy success stories within the field of rheumatism therapy can be explained by the influences on the vegetative system and the pituitary-adrenal cortex system. What is significant here is that the often dysfunctional local blood circulation within the tissue is improved, the hyperergic responsiveness is reduced and regulatory dysfunctions within the pituitary-adrenal cortex system are balanced.

The increased upwelling caused by the salt makes the body seem much lighter in the water and, in addition to the valuable mineral nutrients of the HEALING SALT, it contributes to quick relaxation and tension relief of the musculature. The resulting relaxed bodily feeling leads to a long-lasting calming of irritated nerves and can thereby counteract a recurrence of symptoms.
