Expert Physiotherapy For Pelvic Girdle Pain In London
Suffering from mild to severe discomfort at the front or back of your pelvis?
Pelvic girdle pain can affect not only these areas but one or both sides of your lower back and hips. Also known as symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) or sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJ), it’s caused by issues within the ring of bones surrounding your body, at the base of your spine.
You’re more likely to struggle with pelvic girdle pain if you’re carrying excess weight, have suffered trauma to your pelvis, have had this type of pain in the past, or are expecting more than one baby. Common symptoms include pain when lying on your side, soreness between the vagina and anus, and a clicking sensation in your pelvic area.
It’s estimated that around 20% of women will suffer from this type of pain during pregnancy, so you’re certainly not alone. Fortunately, physiotherapy can be highly effective in reducing the pain caused by this issue.
