The famous Czech spa resort of Teplice specializes in the treatment and prevention of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, cerebral palsy, central nervous and cardiovascular systems in adults and children. Today we will talk about the medical treatments Teplice offers for children.
Medical treatments take place at children’s sanatorium Nove Lazne.
The main source for treatments are the thermal springs “Pravřídlo” (Primary Hot Spring) and "Hynie", used in a variety of procedures.
In addition to water procedures, Nove Lazne also offers oxygen therapy, ergo therapy, electrotherapy, magneto therapy, heat therapy, massages, etc.
Also, complex medical and teaching methods are used in treatment of cerebral palsy: Bobatov’s methods, Kabat’s method, Vojta therapy. etc.
What happens during outpatient treatment at "Nove Lazne", (as of 2013):
Czech Spa Resort Nove Lazne accepts children from 2 to 18y.o., accompanied by an adult. Please bring with you child’s medical documents (patient card, X-rays, hospital discharge papers, etc), and the medications that he is usually taking.
The programme begins with medical examination. Based on this, the doctor will prescribe an individual treatment plan of 20-24 treatments per week. Examples are:
At the end of each week, the attending physician examines the child; this is to make sure that your child is on the right treatment plan.
At the end of the treatment course, the child is examined by a doctor again, to measure the results from the treatments. Medical report and recommendations for further self-treatment at home are issued.
Recommended treatment duration: preventive programme - at least two weeks, rehabilitation - at least three weeks.
Repeated treatment after 6 month is also recommended.
Cerebral palsy – children can hold their head, talk, crawl, roll over. Muscle tissue is strengthened and muscle tone is reduced.
Diseases of the nervous and vascular systems – significant improvement of child’s general mental state, prevention of developing chronic diseases; strengthening of the immune system.
