Physical medicine

At the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department consultations, you can see a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist for diagnostics and for non-operative treatments of musculoskeletal disorders, such as muscle, tendon, and joint injuries and neck and back problems. To make a diagnosis, an EMG is sometimes performed. Treatments include infiltrations, manual therapy and ESWT (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy) in addition to education for the purpose of rehabilitation.  
AZ Jan Portaels has multidisciplinary rehabilitation teams for back patients and for patients with neurological and orthopaedic conditions led by the specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. 
If you want to start oncological rehabilitation at AZ Jan Portaels, you should first schedule a consultation with the specialist for physical medicine and rehabilitation. Your GP or specialist can refer you.
