Through Life Physiotherapy is currently working with Monash University to study the effect of therapeutic ultrasound on the treatment of lactational mastitis. 

While physiotherapists see many women respond well to the use of therapeutic ultrasound, there is minimal scientific evidence supporting its efficacy in the treatment of mastitis. There is also similar lack of scientific evidence for the use of antibiotics in inflammatory conditions of the lactating breast. Therapeutic ultrasound is reemerging as an effective adjunct or alternative to the current treatment options. 

The research findings will help establish the extent to which therapeutic ultrasound is of benefit to women suffering from inflammatory conditions of the breast including lactational mastitis.

Through Life Physiotherapy is proud to be at the forefront of the industry and actively involved in research aimed at enhancing the wellbeing of patients in Gippsland and across Australia.
