Abstract

Due to the existence of important thermal water resources, in Bihor County there are many locations where thermo-mineral waters are used for bathing or for leisure. In this study, we focus on the spas in Bihor County (Băile Felix, Băile 1 Mai, Băile Tinca, Stâna de Vale, to which we add the village of Sarcău), where these waters have been used for a long time and which have the necessary infrastructure for therapy. Thus, we aim to highlight the particularities of these waters, the presentation of the balneotherapy procedures used and the emphasis on the beneficial effects of balneotherapy on osteoarthritis (most of the pathologies treated here are osteoarthritis). In the spa treatment bases, along with thermal water, other procedures are used that enhance the effect of these waters (physiotherapy, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), TCARE (capacitive and resistive electrical transfer), therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage massage, ultrasound, electrotherapy, low frequency electromagnetic pulse therapy, galvanic baths, paraffin wraps, laser therapy). The main pathologies treated by the mentioned procedures are inflammatory rheumatic diseases, neuromuscular diseases.
