BACKGROUND: Various methods of physical therapy have been proposed for the rehabilitation of patients with breast cancer. However, a staged approach to prescribing physiotherapeutic factors in the early period after surgical treatment of breast cancer has not been developed enough.

AIMS: to develop a staged approach to the appointment of physiotherapeutic factors at different times after surgical treatment of breast cancer.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Examination and treatment of 64 patients aged 30 to 70 years after surgical treatment for breast cancer were carried out. All patients underwent medical rehabilitation: individual exercise therapy, balanstherapy, sessions with a medical psychologist, course exposure to an alternating low-frequency electrostatic field and general magnetotherapy. The main group consisted of 33 patients who underwent a 2-stage course of medical rehabilitation: the 1st course on days 2–4 after the operation and the 2nd course after 1–1.5 months against the background of adjuvant radiation therapy. The control group — 31 women, underwent physiotherapy placebo procedures.

RESULTS: I was found that two-stage physical rehabilitation improves the quality of life, reduces swelling, increases the range of motion, decreases pain, decreases the number of postoperative complications, and shortens the duration of lymphorrhea.

CONCLUSION: The inclusion of exposure to an alternating low-frequency electrostatic field and general magnetotherapy in the early stages (2–4 days) and 1–1.5 months after surgical treatment has broad functionality and allows you to obtain a pronounced functional and stable clinical result.
