Audiology: audiometry examinations, tympanometry, rhinoscope with optical fibre and other equipment for diagnostic and therapy of ORL disease, in particular of the rhinogenic deafness.
Respiratory rehabilitation: In the physioteraphy department it is possible to practice the respiratory rehabilitation for diseases of respiratory system.
MINERAL WATER THERAPY
The mineral water therapy consists in the administration of thermal water as a drink for therapeutic purpose.
Patient has to drink water slowly and without meal, after medical visit and prescription, in a quantity varies from one to four litre per day.
It has a stimulant action for digestive and hepatic system enhancing the bile secretion and improving digestion.
This therapy is suitable for:
- Chronic gastritis and oesophagitis
- Hiatal hernia
- Irritable bowel
- Chronic constipation
Sulphurous water is used for hearing diseases and chronic diseases of respiratory system thank to its stimulating and thinner action for catarrhal secretion with subsequent cleansing of mucous membranes and thanks to its strong antimicrobial and antibacterial power.
There are different methods in this kind of therapy.
Some inhalation therapies are very effective on children.
IInhalation with direct jet: sulphurous water is warmed and it is pulverized in steam drops of about 100 u of diameter that settle in the upper.
Aerosol: in the equipment with flowing water, water is micronized in parcels of 1-2 u that can spread reaching pulmonary alveolus.
The lenght of these therapies is of about twelve minutes each session.
Politzer – insufflations: sulphurous gas is used also for therapy of rhinogenic deafness.
Through a probe, the gas is directly inflated into the Eustachian tube and in the cavity of middle ear, where exerts its anti-catarrhal and anti- inflammatory power acting on the tympanic membrane and ventilating again the middle ear and consequently improving the auditory faculty.
Nebulization: it is used in the medium respiratory diseases and it is practised colletively in a big dedicated environment with dispensers conveying micronized sulphurous water as small drops of 50-60 u.
The presence in the nebulization room varies according the cases from 15 to 30 minutes.
Nasal douches: as un-vapirozed water, sulphurous water is particularly suitable for hyperthophy of turbinates strongly marked in the hypertrophic and allergic rhinitis and in sinusitis.
Humage: this is a therapy practised with sulphurous gas produced by the bubbling of sulphurous water that provokes the release of hydrogen sulphide acid in the air.
The thermal balneotherapy, using mineral therapeutically active waters, associates the biologic and therapeutic effect exerted by digesters to physic nonspecific properties, making the mineral water a solution with a peculiar chemical composition.
The technique of bath follows some general principles even if it is possible to make changes in the methodology of application in base of the kind of mineral water and the diseases to be cured.
The general balnotherapy with hot or warmed water is practised in dedicated single tubes.
It is suitable for:
- Osteo-articular diseases
- Vascular diseases
- Dermatological diseases
- Treatment of scars and burns
- Gynaecological treatment
For mud-therapy a parasitic mud is used. This is a product made of feldspars of trachytic rocks combined with amorphous rests of aluminium silicate, ferrous and calcareous material, alkaline salt and sodium chloride.
It is suitable for:
- Rheumatological diseases
- Chronic osteoarticular diseases
