Raynaud's disease


Raynaud's disease



Raynaud's disease is manifested by the feeling of cold, bruising and tingling in the hands and feet, less often in the ears and mouth. The accompanying pain and the onerous symptoms hamper the quality of life of the people affected.

Very few are aware of the Raynaud's disease, but the problem affects as much as 5-10% of the population. Surprisingly, it mainly affects young people between 15 and 45 years old. Research shows that the occurrence of the disease is four times higher among women than men.

It may affect individuals of various occupations - from pianists and office workers to the cold storage staff and mining machinery operators.

The most common symptoms of Raynaud's disease are the feeling of cold, as well as bruising and tingling in the hands and feet. The symptoms are caused by the contraction of the arteries which hinders the export of blood rich in oxygen. The accompanying pain and troublesome symptoms impact the quality of life.

Anna Kurliszyn - Moskal, the head of the Rehabilitation Clinic. In addition to the diagnosis of microcirculation, therapeutic treatment is carried out, including a three-week cycle of rehabilitation treatments. Very good effects were observed, consisting in reducing the severity of pain and the incidence of seizures This treatment has been implemented since January 2017 at the Sanatorium Uzdrowiskowy in Augustów.
