The presence of people with lymphedema taking the waters at the thermal spa at Bagnoles-de-l'Orne led to the creation of a Lymphology Unit at the Hôpital de La Ferté-Macé, situated 5 km from the spa. A course of treatment at a spa is a considerable aid in treating lymphedema because of its filtering, resolving, keratolytic and sedative action and because of hydraulic pressure therapy.

Nitric-silica baths had beneficial myoadaptive and analgesic effect on patients with reflex dorsopathy syndromes. Balneotherapy combined with the treatment by sinusoidal modulated currents, massage, and remedial gymnastics was efficacious in alleviating musculotonic and orthopedic problems in patients with lumbar osteochondrosis. This effect was more pronounced than with the use of gas-bubble baths due to the improvement of trophic processes in the muscular tissue of the affected back and limb regions.
