After surgery, post-surgical rehabilitation is aimed at returning the patients to normal life both physically and psychologically. The list of post-traumatic procedures and methods depends on the course of the disease, the scale of the surgery, the individual features, and the time since the surgery has been performed.

During surgery for breast cancer, nearby lymph nodes are often removed and because of the damaged tissues, swelling in the arm or hand can appear.
Manual lymph drainage: it helps to reduce swelling and heal more quickly from surgical trauma. It stimulates the flow of fluid, improves the blood flow in the muscles, which improves tissue nutrition, metabolism and changes the muscle tone.
Manual lymph drainage removes metabolic waste, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the tissues and improves regeneration.
Post-traumatic therapy: For faster recovery, post-traumatic therapy should be started soon after the surgery. After surgery patient can have weakness, swelling, scar and reduction of joint movements. The Center’s rehabilitation therapist will guarantee faster post-surgical recovery by performing individual treatments with special exercises, ensuring the best results.
Skeleton-muscular rehabilitation: It is the rehabilitation of the difficulties caused by the restricted range of joint movements. An insufficient number of movements often causes symptoms associated with musculoskeletal problems - such as pain, sensory changes, stiffness, weakness or joint instability, as well as back pain (lumbar or thoracic), neck pain, shoulder joint problems, knee pain, ligament injuries, foot, elbow or hand problems.
