Doing sports can sometimes cause serious muscle, joint or bone injuries. Sometimes injuries happen during the period of active sports, sometimes problems develop after years of active sports. But you don't have to live with pain.


Although musculoskeletal complaints are similar, athletes require a different type of treatment.

For athletes, the recovery process is more than just pain relief.

It also includes a proper diet, activation of the body, and mental refreshment. For this purpose, the packages offered to sportsmen and sportswomen in Hévíz contain medical treatments, relaxation programmes, active leisure activities and a wide range of menus that can be easily integrated into the diet. For athletes, personalisation is also evident as the treatments should be in line not only with the severity of the problem but also with the athlete's lifestyle, training schedule and competition calendar.

The following hotels have also put together tailor-made offers for athletes.

The St. Andrew’s Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Hévíz provides medicinal treatments in the framework of in-patient or out-patient care.




Water's buoyancy relieves pressure on joints, minerals soothe pain, the suspension helps correct spinal deformities

It is no wonder that swimming is one of the most recommended sports. Bathing in hot thermal water is the best natural treatment for joints. And the suspension is the most effective "medicine" for the spine. There is only one place in the world where these three factors can be combined.

Swimming and being suspended, i.e. floating in a vertical position, in Lake Hévíz can only be experienced in Hévíz. The right water composition, water temperature, water depth and water surface of sufficient size are only given here.

Swimming because it is a type of movement in which gravity has only a small effect on the body, and due to the buoyancy of the water, you can strengthen your muscles and joints without putting them under strain. Swimming, on the other hand, can exercise the entire musculature of the body, but it is also good for the spine because it helps to correct spinal deformities. In addition, thermal water has an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect, and bathing in hot water has a stress-relieving effect on the whole body. From this point of view, it provides a complex therapeutic experience for the bather.

It has a great advantage: it can be done at any time. Although there are specific cases where it is not recommended, it is the best and most natural treatment for the vast majority of people.
