Abstract

Introduction: Contemporary lifestyle and the accompanying risk factors such as immobilization, obesity, poor nutrition and stress lead to increased morbidity and exacerbation of joint diseases. This hampers the daily activities of patients to a certain degree and turns them into users of long-term care, which include medication therapy, rehabilitation, balneotherapy. Applied, the mineral waters as a part of the complex balneological treatment, have a beneficial effect on various joint diseases with their mineral, gas composition and high temperature. On the basis of the data obtained from the study of the chemical composition of one of the water sources in the village of Yagoda, we have found that water can be used in treatment and prevention of degenerative joint diseases. This report aims to present the beneficial effects of mineral water from a source in the village of Yagoda in patients with such pathology.
Materials and Methods: The study combines theoretical concepts and observations of the influence of mineral water from a source in the village of Yagoda in patients with degenerative joint diseases.

Conclusion: Elements dissolved in water, penetrating the body through the skin or by internal use, are involved in its biochemical reactions. On the basis of the data obtained from the study of the chemical composition of one of the water sources in the village of Yagoda, it was found that the water based on the pH indicator is alkaline and unsuitable for everyday drinking, but it has an extremely beneficial effect in the treatment of degenerative joint diseases, improving the general condition, psycho - emotional tone, the functional capacity of the locomotor system, the respiratory and the cardiovascular system of the patient.
