Pregnancy-Related Pelvic Girdle Pain Physiotherapy
There are several challenges and discomfort that can arise during pregnancy. Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PRPGP) is one such issue and is a common condition affecting expectant mothers’ quality of life. That’s why we proudly offer specialized physiotherapy treatments to alleviate pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain and help you enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy.
What is pelvic girdle pain in pregnancy?
Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain is a common condition that affects up to 70% of pregnant women. It is distinguished by pain in the pelvis, lower back, and hips. This pain can range from mild discomfort to severe debilitating pain that interferes with daily activities and sleep.
Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain is thought to be caused by a complex interaction between the complex anatomy of the female pelvis and the high-intensity demand placed on it during pregnancy. Causes of pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain include changes in hormone levels, increased weight and pressure of the fetus on the pelvic area, and alterations in posture and movement patterns.
It’s important to address PRPGP promptly to prevent it from worsening and impacting your pregnancy. Early intervention and targeted treatment are crucial for managing PGP and ensuring a smoother pregnancy experience.
