Physical Therapy Treatment of Blocked Milk Ducts
If a mother is unable to clear a blocked milk duct on her own, physical therapy intervention has proven to be very helpful. A very specific massage technique and therapeutic ultrasound is used to help pump the milk out and unblock the duct.
This type of treatment can help prevent mastitis developing if it is done early enough, so timely treatment is important.
We generally start treatment within twenty-four hours of a milk duct becoming blocked in order to clear it before mastitis develops. Patient education is also emphasized so each woman learns how to clear any future blockages.
