The beneficial effects felt after a rheumatology cure are the result of the thermal treatment itself, together with the benefits of rest and the therapeutic education imparted.

  • Significant and lasting pain relief,
  • Improved joint mobility with greater range of motion,
  • Clear improvement in the quality of life.

Thermal water heated at 36°C relieves pain considerably and improves the mobility of the joint by relaxing the muscles in general. The mechanical effect plays a major therapeutic role during underwater rehabilitation. The surge of thermal water produces a soothing effect which facilitates movements and relaxes the muscles. The increased viscosity of the Mondorf water helps specifically to strengthen – while relaxing – the muscles.
