Lima PT offers a comprehensive treatment plan that includes:

1

Manual Lymphatic Massage Therapy

Dr. Lima employs a variety of hands-on techniques to provide relief and improve breast health. She uses gentle, yet effective, massage to help reduce the inflammation and help the lymphatic system in the body.

These techniques also enhance overall breast function, making breastfeeding a more comfortable and successful experience. Dr. Lima's expertise in manual therapy ensures that each treatment is performed with precision and care, tailored to the individual needs of each patient.

2

Ultrasound Technology

Dr. Lima utilizes advanced ultrasound technology to effectively treat clogged ducts and mastitis. This non-invasive technique uses high-frequency sound waves to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. Tailored to each patient's needs, ultrasound therapy complements other treatments, providing comprehensive care for breastfeeding mothers.

Postural Education

Dr. Lima offers guidance on postural education, which is vital for breastfeeding mothers dealing with clogged ducts and mastitis. This includes optimizing breastfeeding mechanics and implementing preventive measures for common challenges. By empowering mothers with practical and ergonomic guidance, we help minimize strain on affected breast tissue, fostering a more comfortable and sustainable breastfeeding experience.
