Sore cracked nipples and how our specialist post-natal Physiotherapists can help
Sore cracked nipples affect and can stop mums breastfeeding. We have a treatment that provides not only pain relief but also has ant-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) can be used to treat all kinds of nipple trauma related to breastfeeding including painful cracked nipples.
Using Laser means using a single laser beam targeted at areas of the nipple that needs healing. As specialist post-natal physiotherapists, Miriam, Alina & Emma are trained to effectively assess where to target this beam to provide the most effective healing and pain relief. Each person is different, and assessments are individual, and the amount of treatment required varies but signs of healing can be seen after just one treatment session.
Some of the benefits of this treatment are:
Healing painful cracked nipples Quicker return to pain-free breast feeding It speeds up the healing process It doesn’t interfere with breastfeeding
