Pelvic Girdle, Back and Hip pain
During pregnancy, 1 in 5 women experience discomfort in their pelvic and hips (pelvic girdle pain, PGP) and approximately 49% of women experience back pain.
As pelvic health physiotherapists we are able to address these problems associated with your pregnancy. If your symptoms are affecting your ability to complete every day activities or to continue working the following advice and self management resources can help you to manage symptoms and improve your strength and fitness to cope better.
If your symptoms are unmanageable your midwife, G.P or obstetrician can refer you to the pregnancy related pain advice class. You can talk to a physiotherapist about your symptoms and they will advise if you need further assessment.
