Abstract:

Deep breast pain and milk stasis are often blamed on back pressure on milk ducts, incomplete emptying and fungal infection. Although these issues can be attributed to backpressure in the case of milk stasis, or "not likely to be related to" in the case of fungal infection inside the breast, the forgotten role that structural integrity plays in breast health can explain those problems that develop and persist despite proper milk removal and general health care of the breast. This presentation covers the anatomy and physiology of rib and vertebral subluxation and myofascial trigger points in generating deep breast pain and milk stasis. Several case reports illustrate the concept; proper care for resolution of these issues is covered.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1. Define subluxation and myofascial trigger points.

Objective 2. Describe signs and symptoms of both in the breastfeeding parent.

Objective 3. List treatment approaches for both conditions.
