Many women experience blocked milk ducts in the early months of nursing their new baby. It is often painful and is frustrating for mother and baby. It is possible to release the hardened milk in the ducts with a combination of massage, ultrasound therapy, laser therapy, nutritional counseling, and education in stress reduction. Dr. Ban has worked with several lactation specialists in the East Bay for over 10 years and has successfully treated many women for this problem.
NOTE: Treatment is often covered by insurance. The number of visits may vary depending on the severity of symptoms.
