Pregnancy Care Top Tips: Pelvic Girdle Pain

Top Tips on Pelvic Girdle PainShoreham Chiropractic Clinic have produced a new Pregnancy Care Top Tips focussing on Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP).

The pelvic girdle is a ring of bones at the base of your spine, which includes the sacroiliac joints at the back and the symphysis pubis at the front.

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG) describe Pelvic Girdle Pain as pain in the front and/or back of the pelvis, it can affect other areas such as the back, hips or thighs.

PGP can include symptoms such as pain on walking on uneven surfaces, pain on standing prolonged periods of time, pain climbing stairs and turning over in bed.

It is common and can affect both your ability to move comfortably and your quality of life. It affects 1 in 5 pregnant women. Detecting PGP early and receiving treatment is considered safe during and after pregnancy. An improvement in the function of the pelvis can be beneficial during labour.

In our experience pelvic girdle pain is something that you do not have to put up with until your baby is born.
