They were divided into 2 groups namely group A and group B, group A consisting of 15 subjects and group B consisting of 15 subjects. The subjects in both the groups performed the stipulated exercises. The treatment was given 1 hour per day for 3 days per week for 4 weeks making a total of 12 sessions. Pre and post test scores were measured based on range of motion, circumference measurement of limb length and pain. Results: The result showed that complex decongestive therapy was more effective than standard physiotherapy after 4 weeks of treatment. Conclusion: The therapy session concluded that the treatment session was effective which showed that the shoulder mobility was increased and the pain and oedema was reduced by the treatment Complex Decongestive Therapy program.
