the benefits of abano thermal mud

the musculoskeletal system is grateful to it, but also our mind is relieved!

Mud therapy at Abano Terme is particularly effective in the treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, extra-articular rheumatism, joint diseases, including degenerative and autoimmune diseases), but it is also used to relieve muscle contractures and pain, as well as for the treatment of carpal tunnel.

The combination of Abano Terme’s salso-bromo-iodine thermal water with mud also creates a certified stress remedy. Thanks to the reactivation of the circulation and the detoxifying and remineralising properties it has on the organism, mud-balneotherapy is able to relax the muscles, giving energy and vitality to those who experience it
