Pumping on all fours should help, also hand expressing in the shower, using a heating pad or rice sock on the area before pumping, massaging while pumping, and if you have a big, wide tooth comb, get it all soapy in the shower and massage the clogged area with the comb, long strokes toward your nipple.
But the fastest way to clear a clogged duct, according to my LC (I didn't end up doing this because massage and heat cleared mine quickly) is a castor oil pack. Soak a small rag in castor oil, wring it out a bit so it isn't dripping, fold it up to the size of the clogged area, then cover with Saran Wrap (to keep the rag in place and minimize mess), then put heat on it (hot water bottle, rice sock, whatever) for 20 minutes. You can put the rag in a ziploc bag and reuse it if you need to. Might need to repeat a couple of times, but it apparently works really well.
