Home /  Courses And Programs / Ultrasound Use for Plugged Ducts

This course outlines the symptoms and common treatment plans for plugged/clogged milk ducts. However, there are times when the typical treatments do not resolve the issues and the client is left in pain and breastfeeding is jeopardized. Therapeutic ultrasound can be an effective treatment for persistent plugged/clogged milk ducts, providing pain relief and allowing the breast milk to flow freely.
