Blocked Milk Duct Treatment
Blocked milk ducts 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 patients 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.
NOTE: These services are often covered by insurance. The number of visits may vary depending on the severity of symptoms.
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.
Nearly half of the adult population reports symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, or imbalance. PhysioFit's unique therapy programs can help you reduce or eliminate these symptoms. In addition, we will teach you how to independently manage your condition for the long term. A multitude of effective treatment options are available including:
- General conditioning
- Functional training
- Ocular motor exercises
- Gaze stabilization
- Adaptation exercises
- Habituation exercises
- BPPV maneuvers
- Balance exercises
If you are experiencing chronic swelling from accumulated lymph fluid, there are a variety of therapeutic options at PhysioFit. Surgery, peripheral vascular disorders, physical trauma, and idiopathic lymphedema can all cause excessive edema in the arm(s), leg(s), chest, or abdomen.
Our physical therapists can guide you through a program of manual lymphatic drainage, compression, and exercise to remove excess lymph fluid from the affected area. We also educate you on self-care therapies and home exercises to ensure that you can independently manage your condition.
"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!"Alisa Stutzbach
"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."
