Mammary Blocked Duct Treatment
In the urgency of this issue - please text your name and address at 773-771-8906 so it can be treated ASAP.
Blocked ducts are associated with breast engorgement and may result in a localized tender breast lump or area of blushed color; the breast may feel hot; and there may be a white, painful bleb on the end of the nipple. There is generally a lack of constitutional symptoms, although a low-grade fever is not uncommon in cases that are not diagnosed as mastitis. These complications may result in making lactation painful and difficult, thus endangering the proper nutrition of the baby. This can also cause anxiety and frustration to both the parent and child; and the person/parent may choose to discontinue breastfeeding, which typically exacerbates the problem.
I will treat with ultrasound, massage, and k tape. Keep nursing or pumping. Most patient's have relief after the first treatment session, some patient's may need 2 sessions.

It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. LLLT can be used in the treatment of pelvic pain conditions, including vulvodynia, vaginismus, vestibulodynia, painful bladder syndrome, coccydynia, pudendal neuralgia and clitoral pain.
