Experiencing Blocked Ducts or Mastitis? Our Lactation Physiotherapy services in Katong, Singapore can help.

Sore and engorged breasts are the last thing a new mum needs to deal with and is a common complaint of lactating women, apart from a decreased or insufficient milk supply.

What is Mastitis?
Mastitis is an inflammatory condition of the lactating breast tissue as a result of a milk stasis. It may or may not be associated with infection.

This may be a result of ineffective milk removal through positioning or issues with the baby’s latch, over supply, missed feeds, cracked/damaged nipples or compression of the breast such as from underwire bras.

Timing is of the essence when it comes to blocked ducts and mastitis and as such we will prioritise appointments for patients with conditions of the lactating breast.

Therapeutic ultrasound is a quick and effective non-pharmacological treatment for the inflammatory symptoms of Mastitis as it helps to break down the blockage and prevents ongoing symptoms. It also enhances healing rates, tissue relaxation, local blood flow and tissue healing. These treatments will occur daily, until symptoms have resolved.

We also focus on manual handling techniques such as lymphatic drainage, kinesiotaping, positioning and self-management techniques to ease the pain and also to prevent recurrence.

This can only be determined after assessment of your condition. Some only require 1 session, whereas others may require 4-5 sessions.

Highly recommend Embrace for women's PT. I saw Preet after the birth of my son and she took very good care of me, helping me to build my strength back. All the staff are lovely, I had a great experience.

I'd definitely recommend Embrace for after birth physiotherapy recovery. Brenda Lee, my physio, has been very professional, precise and supportive, all one's needs to feel in better shape after giving birth. The Embrace team is lovely and always very reactive when it comes to changing appointment dates. Don't hesitate, they're the best !
