Healthy Joints Programme

(8 days / 7 nights)

 

Benefit from the 60 years of medical expertise of the Leukerbad Clinic
and the advantages of its thermal water!

 

The Healthy Joints programme of the Leukerbad Clinic helps to minimise the consequences of inflammatory or non-inflammatory rheumatological disorders. With its top-flight facilities and unrivalled expertise, the Leukerbad Clinic has been renowned for decades as a cutting-edge medical centre dedicated to readaptation of the locomotor system. Its thermal water is particularly beneficial since its chemical composition soothes rheumatism and its warmth relaxes muscles and promotes healthy joints.

Your stay at the Leukerbad Clinic will allow you to benefit from natural elements favourable to the regeneration of your body such as the pure Swiss mountain air, an ideal altitude, and thermal water swimming pools naturally rich in minerals. The serenity of the surroundings provides the assurance of complete discretion.

The Healthy Joints programme of the Leukerbad Clinic is intended for anyone suffering from a rheumatological disorder, particularly in the following situations:

  • Degenerative conditions (osteoarthritis)
  • Soft tissue disorders (fibromyalgia)
