Blocked Milk Duct (Ductal Narrowing)
Blocked milk ducts (professionally known as ductal narrowing) can be a problem for many women during the baby's nursing stage. The hardened milk can cause pain and discomfort. There are two forms of ultrasound:
- Diagnostic ultrasound that your doctor uses to see your baby
- Treatment ultrasound that is used in physical therapy
Nursing mothers with blocked milk ducts can benefit from PhysioFit's safe and effective ultrasound and massage treatment. When traditional methods of hot compresses and massage do not work, the deep heat from ultrasound can aid in breaking up hardened milk within the milk duct. PhysioFit's physical therapists are specially trained to administer ultrasound and massage treatment for blocked milk ducts, as well as educate you regarding continuous milk circulation and flow. When ultrasound and massage are promptly followed by nursing or pumping, most mothers experience relief after one treatment session.
During rehabilitation, Pilates will focus on mobility, flexibility and strength through a full range of motion which can help restore the injured area to a healthy state. Core strengthening is an integral component of any injury prevention, rehabilitation or sports performance program. A strong core provides a dynamic link between the upper and lower body, alleviating excess stress on the peripheral joints.
Our physical therapists will guide you through Pilates-bases exercises to help you reduce or eliminate pain, prevent future injury and promote fitness. As we train you in therapeutic Pilates techniques, you will learn how to reach your rehabilitation goals by appropriately recruiting your muscles and producing efficient, safe movement.
What Our Clients Say
Janet is very experienced and a professional therapist. She understands the subject and the patient's issues very well. Her hands have magic. I highly recommend her.
I have had treatment from both Allison and Janet. And they are amaizing. Great accessible location and they are always good with schedules and reschedules.
I have seen Katrina for pelvic floor physical therapy this past year, and have struggled with nocturia for 15+ years. Prior to seeing Katrina, I saw 3 different urologists who were not able to find a solution for my night time voiding. I was given so many different medications - none of them worked. The doctors just said my symptoms were due to menopause, which was very vague and didn’t make sense to me. Waking up several times a night (every 2 hours) to urinate was very disruptive to my sleep, SO very frustrating. As someone with a complex medical history, I didn't think there would be a solution, and thought I'd have to live with this. I was pretty much ready to give up, until I found Katrina! Katrina is a very holistic therapist, she is very kind, genuine, competent, listening to my story, and doesn’t treat me like a “cookbook” patient - she really takes her time and looks at your body holistically during the evaluation. She explains everything that she is doing, which is very helpful because I've been trying to find an answer to my problem for years! She provides visual images and videos to help me learn about my issue, using the pelvic floor model as well, as I'm a visual learner. She is also very accessible - if I have any questions, she will respond to my email within 24 hours. I am now able to sleep through the night without waking up. I also don't leak urine anymore, so I don't have to wear those annoying and expensive pads when I play tennis. I have more energy throughout the day to participate in activities with my friends, which is important to me. Thank you Katrina for being my therapist and friend, problem solving with me, and never giving up on me.
Keya is a very professional, caring and highly skilled PT. She always helps me feel 100% better after my sessions with her. I’m so grateful to have her as my therapist. Thank you Keya. All the staff at PhysioFit are very helpful and courteous. One feels so welcome!
I've been coming for a few months now and I'm really impressed with the care I am receiving from Katrina. She gives me exercises that are challenging and helpful. I've already seen progress in the strength of my leg and a reduction in numbness in my foot from the disc pressure on my nerves. Overall, I appreciate the knowledgeable and dedicated therapists, the very friendly and helpful support staff, and the variety of equipment and treatments available.
I was lucky to find PhysioFit. They have a really professional staff that deals with all sorts of physical therapy needs. In particular I was in need of a person that understands male pelvic rehab, I found Katrina extremely professional therapist. If you are looking to get physical therapy, this would be a great choice.
I'm very thankful to have had PhysioFit and Janet Perrino recommended to me for the physical therapy of my proximal humerus fracture. Having in office sessions focused on evaluating my progress, tuning the rehab I do on my own, and manual therapy is exactly what I was hoping for and is only possible because of Janet's knowledge and experience. It has been great!
Love their Pilates instructors are professional, knowledgable and perceptive. Specially Lori. Their Physical Therapist have being very helpful when dealing with knee pain.
I found PhysioFit through my friend who also had clogged milk ducts. I was having a persistence clog that wouldn't resolve and needed to unclog it. I'm in healthcare myself and I've never heard of therapeutic ultrasound that delivers heat to break down the clog. I've only heard of diagnostic ultrasounds. Katrina who is the physical therapist I saw explained that it's not new technology but usually used in PT to help with sore tissues and muscles. Katrina used the therapeutic ultrasound and massaging technique to get both of my clogs out! I felt relief immediately! The sessions was an hour and I was afraid I'll be uncomfortable while she worked on the clog, but Katrina was full of energy and chatted with me the whole time! The sessions are pricey ($290/session) but they were upfront on the cost and did try to bill my insurance. But since I have HMO insurance it was considered out of network and did not cover the session. However they do take FSA card and sometimes offer promos! In the end, super glad this place offers this type of service for lactating mothers.
I have been going to physiofit after trying several other centers that did not work for me. As an older adult in my 70’s I needed to find a therapist that really understood how to take care of my many pains and aches. This is not an easy therapist to find, I was looking for someone who both understands the anatomy of an older body but also has the caring touch and sweet demeanor. Well I was so happy to find Katrina who is all of those things she is the best therapist I have ever worked with and has completely help me transform my pain into exercises and stretches that truly support me in my healing. I could not recommend her enough she is caring, knowledgeable, and patient. I feel very grateful to her support in this process of healing my body. You will be glad to work with her. Thanks -maryam

"I have had a stiff and painful back for many years and finally decided to enter rehab when it interfered with my daily life. I chose PhysioFit at Loyola Corners in Los Altos because I previously had an excellent experience with them to begin rehab on my shoulder after reconstructive surgery. I've been getting rehab and much needed encouragement from a superb therapist, doing assigned exercises at home, and remedial gym work for the past 6 months, and it has improved my back's flexibility and mobility significantly. More needs to be done, and I am very pleased with our progress so far. Kudos to the people at PhysioFit."
"Kind people. And the milk duct blockage removal service is such a necessary and great service, thank you. In particular, Kim is just lovely. I've had the service done twice now, and both times I learned a lot and got some relief."
"Early in my pregnancy with my second baby, I developed some pain in my hips. I kept exercising and stretching, and I assumed that the pain would go away after his birth. Boy, was I mistaken! Three weeks after having an uncomplicated childbirth, I could barely walk, let alone pick up my baby or my toddler. My own self-care measures of stretching and exercise seemed to make my symptoms worse, not better. Since I'd been taking Pilates and TRX classes at Physiofit for years, physical therapy was at least on my radar. After the improvement I saw after just a few visits with Mika, I really wish I'd considered physical therapy sooner! The treatment and progressively more challenging exercises I've been given for both my hips and shoulder and neck problems I developed caring for my newborn have made it possible for me to start feeling like myself again. I can finally do TRX again, and--most importantly--I can keep up with my baby and toddler as well as anyone can be expected to!"
"About 2 months after I delivered my baby, I developed plugged ducts from breastfeeding. As a new mom, I had spoken with several moms who had varying levels of challenges trying resolving them. After scouring the internet, and trying everything to resolve the plugs, my midwife/physician referred me to Physiofit for plugged-duct physical therapy. I had never considered physical therapy as being a possible solution, but through their combination of massage and ultrasound treatment, we were able to get the ducts unplugged without needing surgery. One of the things that was really encouraging about this form of therapy was that it's completely non-invasive, and the technicians made me feel very comfortable in the sessions. There was no down-time, or healing time so I could still go about my life, nursing my baby, going to work, etc. PhysioFit is one of the first (and few) studios to offer this type of treatment, and I love that they have been innovators in offering effective alternative treatments to plugged ducts compared to surgery."
