Many breastfeeding mothers experience blocked ducts and Mastitis in the first few months after birth. At INSPIRE Physiotherapy for Women, we can support you at this time and provide treatment and advice to help settle the tenderness/pain and help restore milk flow.
Treatment includes a combination of therapeutic ultrasound, lymphatic massage and advice to recover and prevent further occurrences.
Physiotherapy treatment is most effective in the early stages and can often stop the blocked ducts reaching the stage of Mastitis. We believe in a multidisciplinary approach, working as a team with your GP and Lactation Consultant to support you and your baby with breastfeeding.
