Breastfeeding Relief Treatments
How Can Our Physios Provide Relief in Breastfeeding?
Our Physios can visit you at home or be seen at our clinic In Telok Ayer Street. The sessions can be 45 mins or an hour depending on your needs and can include any of or a combination of the below treatments.
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. Videos to remind you of the self massage techniques will be given access to after the session.
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.
The Breastfeeding Relief Sessions can be at your Home Or At Our Clinic In Telok Ayer
