Lactation and Mastitis

Breastfeeding should be a joyful experience but mastitis, engorgement, and blocked ducts can be painful, debilitating and stressful. Physiotherapists use therapeutic ultrasound as part of a holistic treatment that is effective in relieving inflammatory symptoms such as redness, swelling and tenderness, giving women the relief they need in order to continue breastfeeding their baby.

Inform Physiotherapy is the leading physiotherapy practice in Victoria for providing evidence based assessment and treatment for these very painful and very treatable conditions.

For best outcomes, our physiotherapists work as part of a multi-disciplinary team with doctors, midwives and lactation consultants to help women get the best possible outcomes.

It can be difficult to attend appointments while you are adjusting to having a newborn and have mastitis symptoms. Every effort is made to facilitate home visits and professional advice and self-management techniques are taught to help women actively manage ongoing symptoms themselves.

Please contact us directly on 9481 6312 for Mastitis & Lactation concerns, as we prioritise these appointments as required.
