Breastfeeding Relief Treatments

How Can Physio Provide Relief in Breastfeeding

Lymphatic & Specific Breast Massage

When breasts are sore and engorged it is not just milk but a mixture of excess fluid accumulation and milk.  Physiotherapists at Health2u can visit you at home and provide lymphatic massage and teach self lymphatic massage to help the fluid drain and then provide relief.  This type of massage is a very light massage and not a pummeling effect that sometimes mothers are given by other massage therapists which is painful and can cause bruising.

Ultrasound for Blocked Milk Ducts 

The physiotherapists can also provide ultrasound therapy to help unblock milk ducts that may be blocked causing problems with breastfeeding and laser therapy to the nipples to relieve soreness.

Manual Therapy & Massage To The Upper Back 

Chest, shoulder and upper back pain can also be a secondary symptom of breastfeeding positions and there are massage, manual therapy, taping techniques and exercises the physios can do to help relieve these pains.
