XL34: Edith Kernerman: Mammary Constriction Syndrome And PEC Massage
There has been much research on the various causes of nipple and breast pain in the lactating mother. In recent years, evidence has been brought to light to suggest that some of the more common causes of pain, may not actually be involved or as involved as previously thought.
Our research has suggested that much breast and nipple pain is either: referred from traumatised nipples, vasospasm that radiates, or is a result of muscle tension in the pectoralis area - now identified as Mammary Constriction Syndrome.
