Physiotherapy services for cancer patients at Docrates Cancer Center include the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, the treatment of functional disorders, rehabilitation, counselling and guidance. The methods applied include therapeutic exercises, manual therapy and physical treatment. The genuine presence of a human being, patient-oriented approach and the setting and defining of individual goals and plans together with the customer are important aspects of my work.
