Preventive programmes

Our Health – Our Responsibility!

We live in a time when everyday professional strain causes a series of physical and mental problems and every disease may result in insurmountable problems in professional and private life. Target oriented preventive and restorative rehabilitation programmes are designed for preserving health and preventing disease. They are carried out individually on modern premises of the Health Centre of Terme Čatež, under expert supervision of specialised doctors (physiatrists, orthopaedic doctors, neurosurgeons and rheumatologists), kinesiologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, masseurs and physical education teachers. The programmes are supplemented by various physical activities outdoors, in the fitness studio and in the Sports Centre. At Terme Čatež, healing thermal water forms an important part of all programmes. In addition to bathing on doctor's advice you can use numerous pools throughout the year to gain strength for relaxation and overcoming of everyday pressures.

Preventive programme for athletes

Preventive programme for athletes is designed for athletes exposed to utmost strain during exercises and competitions, ever more frequently leading to injuries because of inadequate conditioning. It does not suffice to make them fit for everyday moderate physical activity, as they need to be prepared for the highest exertion due to sports training and competition. The purpose of the programme is to adopt a proper approach to physical activity, adjust the strain to individual's ability and reduce the risk of sports injuries by proper exercise planning.

The programmes are performed using state-of-the-art isokinetic and diagnostic equipment and involve a specialised physiatrist, kinesiologist, physiotherapist, masseur and physical education teacher.

Preventive programme for improving body posture

Owing to a specific life style (sitting at school and at home, lack of physical activity) children and youth every more frequently suffer from postural deficiencies, such as kyphosis, scoliosis and excessive lordosis. Long-term poor posture results in degenerative changes of the joints, ligaments, muscles, and pain. Preventive programme for improving body posture is organised in the afternoon and you may participate whether you have been approved by the HIIS reimbursement of accommodation and treatment costs or only treatment costs.

Restorative rehabilitation programme after knee surgery

Restorative rehabilitation programme after knee surgery  involves several months' rehabilitation post knee joint surgery, including reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, reconstruction of lateral ligaments, cartilage transplantation, patellar instability surgery, meniscus suturing and removal. It takes months before the patient having a surgical treatment has recovered his form. All these procedures result in rapid deterioration of the femoral muscle, mainly the four-headed quadriceps. They also destroy the muscle strength balance of knee flexors and extensors, due to which the injury may recur. Further recovery, i.e. restorative rehabilitation is needed after early rehabilitation. An essential element of the programme is dynamic testing of muscles and muscle groups using state-of-the-art Biodex isokinetic system and ultrasound. Ultrasound is a modern non-invasive dynamic examination of soft tissues of joints and muscles, used to identify any pathological changes of muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Restorative rehabilitation programme for paraplegics and tetraplegics

Because of specific way of life in a wheelchair and lack of physical activity, paraplegics and tetraplegics need therapy to preserve health. This is provided by the restorative rehabilitation programme for paraplegics and tetraplegics. Paraplegia is characterised by severe weakness or paralysis of the lower part of the body, while tetraplegia is partial or complete paralysis of all extremities. Both conditions are often accompanied by muscle spasms, shivering and chronic pain. Guests are staying at the hospital department in the Čatež Hotel, which is connected with the Health Centre and pools with thermal water. The healing effect of thermal water is very beneficial for restorative rehabilitation of paraplegics and tetraplegics.

Halliwick and Bobath therapies, practiced by a neurophysiotherapist, form the essential components of the programme and are upgraded by bathing in healing thermal water. The healing effect of thermal water is very beneficial for restorative rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy.
