Help for Mastitis

Breastfeeding evaluations are for any mom experiencing the pain that goes along with clogged milk ducts. An ultrasound machine is used to break up the clog and results in decreased pain and a return to normal flow of milk. It is most effective to have 3 consecutive treatments.
What is ultrasound therapy and how is it used for unblocking clogged ducts?
Beginning by lying down on a treatment table, we’ll get you comfortably positioned so we can access the clog. The ultrasound is gently moved around directly on the location of the clogged duct for 8-10 minutes. Research shows that the heat and mechanism of the therapeutic ultrasound resolves the clogged duct in that amount of time over the recommended three sessions.
At the end of your appointment we’ll send you home with instructions and/or supplements to continue relieving the pain and keep the milk flowing properly! We’ve had tremendous success and it is such an incredible offering for women who are experiencing pain and are concerned about the possibility of mastitis or have tried other remedies with no relief.
