Objective to develop and compare the effectiveness of General magnetic therapy and intermittent pneumocompression in combination with physical therapy and balance therapy, classes with a medical psychologist in patients on day 2–4 and 1.5–2 months after surgical treatment for breast cancer (breast cancer).

Material and methods. 117 patients aged 25 to 70 years were examined and treated after surgical treatment for breast cancer. All patients underwent intermittent pneumocompression at different times after surgery (2–4 days and 1.5–2 months after surgery), followed by General magnetic therapy without interruption.

Results. It was found that this combination of methods of physical rehabilitation helped to reduce pain and postoperative edema, increase the volume of movements in the shoulder joint, prevent the development of severe lymphostasis and improve the quality of life.

Сonclusion. The contribution of General magnetic therapy to the complex of rehabilitation measures is primarily to increase the number of lymphatic collaterals, increase tissue oxygenation and anti-inflammatory effect. Intermittent pneumocompression contribute to the increase in the number of lymphatic collaterals, stimulates lymph flow.
