Background: Lymphedema is a common sequela post mastectomy representing a complex therapeutic challenge.

Study aim: To study the effectiveness of Endermologie therapy on reducing arm edema, edema, and shoulder function in women post mastectomy.

Subjects and methods: Twenty women with unilateral post mastectomy lymphedema were assigned for the study, aged from 30 to 50 years. They were divided into two groups of equal number, study group received Endermologie therapy 4 days per week for 4 weeks and a decongestive physical therapy (DLT) group. Limb volume, pain, and shoulder range of motion (Flexion, and abduction) were measured before and after 4 weeks of treatment.

Results: The results showed significant reduction in limb volume, and pain in the Endermologie group as compared to the DLT group (p value<0.001), and increased shoulder ROM ( flexion, and abduction)in Endermologie group as compared to the DLT group (p value<0.001).

Conclusion: Endermologie therapy can be introduced as a safe modality for post mastectomy lymphedema.
