Physical Therapy modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound and massage techniques can be effective and successful in clearing nursing mother's blocked milk ducts. RSI offers a multi-faceted program to help women in their process of recovery.
Blocked Milk Ducts
During the breastfeeding journey, it is common to experience a blocked duct where milk flow is obstructed. In some cases, these obstructed areas can cause inflammation and infection leading to mastitis.
Both can be very frustrating and uncomfortable for mothers who are breastfeeding or weaning and when conservative measures have failed, it can be useful to try ultrasound and massage therapy. We also help to educate our breastfeeding mothers about best practices for continuous milk flow.
