The main curative mineral springs in Teplice are thermal mineral springs Pravridlo and Hynie, with water temperatures ranging from 39 to 44 degrees. Teplice mineral waters are natural, bicarbonate-sulphate-sodium waters with low mineral levels. These waters are rich in fluorine and contain moderate levels of radon.
Unique qualities of Teplice’s mineral water are used in the treatment of adults and children suffering from locomotive system diseases, neurological and vascular diseases.
♦ Anaesthetic & anabolic effect due to the unique chemical composition of the waters
♦ Anti-inflammatory effect on muscles, tendons, bones, and joints
♦ Hypoallergenic effect due to excretion of uric acid, free radicals, and toxins
♦ Hyperemic effect due to the improved systemic and local blood circulation that results in better muscular function
♦ Anti-spasmodic effect that releases muscular pain caused by painful spasms
♦ Trophic effect that improves nutrients flow to the brain, internals, skin, and bones
♦ Antigravity effect that increases joints’ movement amplitude. When in water, patients are able to make some movements they cannot make when out of water.
Aside from what is mentioned above, Teplice mineral water relaxes your mind, helps decrease high muscle tone, and improves tissue respiration, all thanks to radon.
Curative properties of Teplice springs have been known since ancient times. Archeological excavations at Pravridlo spring have uncovered ancient Roman coins that were left there by people who wanted to thank the spring for miraculous recovery. Centuries later, water from Pravridlo and Hynie springs is still successfully used for curative mineral baths to treat patients with serious disorders of the locomotive system.
Local hydrotherapeutic procedures include mineral baths, underwater massages, alternating baths, and pearl baths with warm water (38 degrees C).
Warm mineral baths calm the nervous system and alleviate pain, making it possible for patients to take fewer sedatives.
Underwater massages stimulate and strengthen weak muscles.
Whirlpool baths are beneficial for children with spastic and dyskinetic forms of the disease.
Mineral elements from Teplice’s springs instantly enter the blood flow through the skin. The beneficial effect produced by the water’s chemical elements lasts for up to six months!
