Physiotherapy for Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding issues that mothers commonly suffer from, such as nipple damage, blocked ducts and mastitis, can be helped by physiotherapists. Low level laser therapy can help to speed up nipple damage and decrease pain, while therapeutic ultrasound can decrease inflammation in the breast tissue that occurs with mastitis.

These treatments should be done alongside and in conjunction with management by a Lactation Consultant, so that the root cause of the issue is being addressed rather than a ‘bandaid’ approach of managing the symptoms. We highly recommend Eve Coote and her team of IBCLC’s at Best Start Lactation Consultancy, conveniently located under the same roof at FitRight HQ.
