Physiokinetotherapy significantly contributes to increasing the quality of life of patients with oncological diseases, both during and after the disease. Exercises such as stretching, balance, or strength, complemented by lymphatic drainage sessions, bring concrete benefits in each stage.
Centrokinetic is one of the few clinics in Romania that operates based on predefined medical protocols, developed under internationally established practices. Especially for patients with such conditions, we have developed a complex program, based on international guidelines and protocols used in the US since 2017.

ROncological recovery is one of the biggest challenges of the Department of Medical Recovery, thanks to the uniqueness of each individual from a genetic point of view, but also the particularities of the case: what type of neoplasm is, at what stage of the disease treatment began, how the body responded to treatment, what complications there were.
Centrokinetic has implemented complex decongestant treatment (TDC). This therapy is intended for patients with primary and/or secondary lymphedema, to promote lymphatic drainage, reduce the volume of edema, improve limb functionality, and elasticity and limit complications. The treatment is adapted to each patient and is performed daily for 1-6 weeks.
The therapy aims to restore the best possible autonomy of the patient. Based on long experience, TDC has proven to be safe and effective as standard therapy for lymphedema. It includes several methods, including manual lymphatic drainage (DLM), intermittent pneumatic compression (CPI), compressive bandage, adapted physical activity under restraint, and educating the patient about learning the rules of self-care (hygiene, self-bandaging, self-drainage), and providing psychological support.
Also, people with cancer can perform a moderate number of exercises, in complete safety, during and after treatment. Here are some basics:
- Each session should include the warm-up and recovery stages after exertion.
- Set a goal of 150 minutes of aerobic exercise with moderate intensity, performed in 3-5 days, and performing exercises to increase endurance, at least 2 times a week.
- endurance increasing exercises should involve large muscle groups 2-3 times a week (8-10 muscle groups, 8-10 repetitions, 2 sets).
- It is recommended to perform a weekly lymphatic drainage massage to improve lymphatic circulation.
- Where possible, it is good that the exercises are performed in a group or under observation because the interaction with the environment can provide an additional benefit or can increase the quality of training.
- For long-term positive results, we recommend that the exercises be performed consistently and at a moderate intensity.
Before starting exercises with one of the recovery doctors, an evaluation is necessary to identify the effects of the disease, treatments, and comorbidities.
EFFECTS OF ONCOLOGICAL RECOVERY
Physiokinetotherapy can improve or correct several problems associated with these diseases:

Oncological recovery at the CENTROKINETIC clinic
Because we pursue the best possible outcome for every patient who enters the clinic, recovery medicine from Centrokinetic is based on:
VERIFIED PROTOCOLS: In the elaboration of the complex oncological recovery program, the information from 3 guides with 18 reviews and 29 randomized studies was integrated. The guide developed by us contains recommendations regarding the duration, frequency, and intensity of exercises for cancer patients.
We believe that medical recovery is an exact science and that the success of treatment depends directly on the application of scientific methods for each type of condition treated. Empirical recovery, or "by ear" not only does not offer the chance of the best result but also induces a significant risk of injury or impairment of the patient's situation. That is why the Centrokinetic clinic places a constant emphasis on the medical rigor of the recovery process.
Centrokinetic clinic offers all services necessary for a complete rehabilitation process, from the first consultation to the medical specialist to establish the correct diagnosis, to treatment and recovery.

- Orthopedics, a department composed of an extremely experienced team of orthopedic doctors, led by Dr. Andrei Ioan Bogdan, primary care physician in orthopedics-traumatology, with surgical activity at Medlife Orthopedic Hospital, specialized in sports traumatology and ankle and foot surgery.
- Pediatric orthopedics, where children's sports conditions are treated (ligament and meniscus injuries), spinal deformities (scoliosis, kyphosis, hyperlordosis) and those of the feet (hallux valgus, hallux rigidus, equine larynx, flat valgus, hollow foot).
- Neurology, which has an ultra-performing department, where consultations, electroencephalograms (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) are performed.
- Medical recovery for adults and children, department specialized in the recovery of performance athletes, in spinal disorders, in the recovery of children with neurological and traumatic diseases. Our experience is extremely rich, treating over 5000 performance athletes.
- Medical imaging, the clinic being equipped with ultrasound and MRI, high-performance devices dedicated to musculoskeletal disorders, and complemented by an experienced team of radiologists: Dr. Sorin Ghiea and Dr. Cosmin Pantu, specialized in musculoskeletal imaging.
