The disease is characterized by the onset of endometrial tissue outside the uterus and is often diagnosed at the advanced stages. The women with this pathology suffer from chronic pain. Endometriosis can also cause the development of infertility. In addition, the patients often have problems with fatigue, exhaustion and bowel problems. The goal of rehabilitation is to ensure the maximally possible engagement of women in all spheres of life and to maintain health in the long term. The department's doctors use the positive effects of sports and exercise in order to improve the mood of patients, relieve pain and stress, improve the functioning of the immune system, blood circulation and much more. The targeted physiotherapy and massage help the patients to strengthen muscles and improve blood circulation, which leads to better functioning of the internal organs, including the uterus, ovaries, bladder and intestines. Rest and relaxation are also beneficial.
