Need A Professional Physiotherapist For Pelvic Girdle Pain?
The pelvic area comes under intense pressure during pregnancy and giving birth, so it’s not surprising that problems often arise. Many women have issues related to the pelvic floor during the postnatal period. Others suffer from pelvic girdle pain (PGP) during pregnancy.
PelviCare has expert physiotherapists who help women struggling with a range of problems related to the pelvic area.
Pelvic girdle pain means you experience mild to severe discomfort at the front or back of your pelvis. It can also occur across one or both sides of your lower back. This is a highly common condition, with statistics showing that around 20% of women suffer from this problem during pregnancy.
What causes pelvic girdle pain?
This condition is caused by the joints moving unevenly at the front or the back of your pelvis. It’s more likely to arise if you’ve suffered trauma to your pelvic, you’re overweight, or you’re expecting twins (or even more babies!).
Our physiotherapists can teach you a wide range of techniques to mitigate the pain, all of which can be practiced at home. They can also advise on other types of exercise. Staying active in general will make a difference to the levels of discomfort you experience. Many women also find that wearing a sacroiliac belt makes a difference.
