Titlechange - method mud therapy, which uses peat mud. Peat is formed in the result of long-term degradation of wetland plant organisms, limited access of air.
For therapeutic purposes, especially suitable peat mud with a high degree of decomposition of plant residues (humification); the higher the degree of decomposition and homogenea the mass, the more suitable peat for therapeutic purposes.
The therapeutic effect of topolcany due to a number of physical and chemical properties of peat: high moisture capacity, which depends mainly on the degree of decomposition, small share (less than silt mud), a significant heat capacity and heat-retaining capacity (higher than the muds). Peat mud is considerably rich in organic matter, than mineral mud. Suitable for therapeutic use peat raw has a dark-brown or black color, clenching in his hand, he easily slips between your fingers, spoiling hand and not distinguishing water. Less decomposed peat has a light yellow color, contains the remains of plants, clenching remains in the hand, not slip between your fingers and highlights unpainted water. This peat for therapeutic purposes not apply. Peat is intended for medical use, is subject to sanitary-bacteriological research.
If the peat deposits are fed by springs of mineral water, they are called, depending on the chemical composition of water sources: ferric sulfate and other Stocks of peat raw in tortoiseplink should be kept in a humid room where the temperature is a little above 0 deg, better in boxes. If peat has dried up in it add a mineral or fresh water, bringing it to the desired consistency. Before heated peat free from large particles, plant debris, stones, etc. using for this purpose a special mechanisms.
Heated peat for a vacation mud treatments are performed in buckets and boxes on the principle of the water bath or devices or in the pipes that peat mechanical served directly to the couch patient.
Methods of topolcany basically the same as in the mud. Peat mud is applied in the form of applications. Peat impose a layer in the thickness not less than 5 see the Temperature of peat for the application of no higher than 38-45 degrees, the duration of the procedure is 15-20 minutes treatment 12-15 procedures. Peat wraps on the wrist and forearm put the patient in a sitting position. In gynecological practice, as in the mud, in addition to applications in the area of the abdomen and pelvis (the"pants"), apply the method of vaginal tampons, and in urology - rectal tampons (for example, prostatitis). The mechanism of action of peat treatments, indications and contraindications to their use are the same as in the mud (see). Benefits for nursing staff working in tortoiseplink,see Mud baths.
