Intravenous blood irradiation
The procedure sounds intimidating, but there is really nothing to be afraid of. On the contrary: innovative magnetic laser irradiation is one of the most effective ways to recover from pneumonia.
The increased risk of blood clots is the most dangerous side effect after COVID-19. Magnetic radiation is directed perpendicularly to the great vessel and helps to reduce the risk of thrombosis. The procedure normalizes microcirculation and increases the overall tone.
Advice from VETLIVA: intravenous blood irradiation is included in rehabilitation programs that are offered in health resorts of Belarus. Doctors recommend not to delay the recovery after pneumonia. It’ll help you return to your usual way of life quickly.
Speleotherapy is a type of climatotherapy. The therapeutic effect is based on the inhalation of air with a high content of fine salt aerosol. It becomes easier to breathe as a result. Speleotherapy boosts up the immune system, reduces the severity of allergic attacks and improves mood.
Interesting fact from VETLIVA: speleotherapy and floating are recommended for patients with nervous disorders and stress. The procedures have a relaxing effect and help to deal with tense anxiety.
If you decide to visit the health resort "Ruzhansky", you’ll be offered to undergo nebulizer treatment. The procedure is included in the rehabilitation program. Nebulizer therapy means inhalation. The course of procedures helps to improve pulmonary ventilation and promotes better absorption of medicinal substances. Inhalation is especially effective in combination with exercises, which have a positive effect on the respiratory system.
Anxiety and depression are common side effects after coronavirus infection. Therapeutic baths are effective for patients with central nervous system problems. Treatments with radon water help to stimulate redox processes, increase metabolism and help to restore the skin.
Pearl baths have a beneficial effect on the blood supply and prevent blood clots. Hydrotherapy has a relaxing effect and allows you to forget about all your problems and just enjoy the peace.
You know surely what electrophoresis is. Phonophoresis is a combined method of physiotherapeutic treatment. It means the use of ultrasound to enhance the delivery of topically applied medicine.
Interesting fact from VETLIVA: the phonophoresis is used in cosmetology. It allows to deliver substances beneficial to the skin using a non-invasive method. Take this method to your attention, if you want to take years off your face, but are afraid of painful injections.
Rehabilitation after pneumonia includes manual and mechanical massage. The procedure improves the function of the respiratory and pectoral muscles. Ventilation of the lungs will be normalized after a course of massage.
The sapropel mud can be called «natural panacea». It includes vitamins, enzymes, acids and even natural antibiotics. Mud applications have an analgesic, tonic and anti-inflammatory effect and help to boost up the immune system.
Extremely high-frequency therapy (EHF-therapy) is the impact of electromagnetic waves of the millimeter range. It helps to stimulate blood circulation, reduce pain and increase the number of T-lymphocytes. The procedure is carried out on the reflexogenic areas of the chest.

The above methods are effective only in combination with physical activity. Many people after pneumonia have asthenic syndrome, when there is not enough strength even to perform elementary exercises. Therapeutic exercise and nordic walking contribute to recovery.
