Pregnancy related pain
Pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain (PPGP) is an umbrella term used to describe all pregnancy related pelvic pain, including symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD). It is unfortunately very common in Pregnancy. PPGP is often related to musculo-skeletal areas and can be a result of excessive mobility or stiffness of the pelvic joints or damage caused to the pelvis due to the weight distribution caused by the new baby. PPGP often presents with the following symptom’s;
pain around the pubic bone
pain in the perineum
pain in the thighs
pain which worsens when walking upstairs or during single leg activities, for example, putting socks or trousers on and getting into / out of the bath or car.
Although PPGP is not harmful to the baby, it can cause extreme pain and discomfort to the mother resulting in a negative pregnancy experience. Physiotherapy is one of the most effective forms of treatment for a number of musculoskeletal pregnancy related complaints including not only PPGP but also back pain and pregnancy related sciatica. Our Women’s Health Physiotherapy Team will focus on implementing a number of rehabilitation exercises to ease your pain and also strengthen the pelvic area to prevent the pain coming back again.
Anti-Natal and Post-Natal Care
Physiotherapy can also be extremely useful to aid women in the recovery of lower back pain and help to restore functional hip strength both during pregnancy and after pregnancy. Pelvic floor strengthening exercises can help to relieve pain and improve mobility both pre and post birth.
All women will go through menopause at some stage of their lives and most are likely to experience a range of symptoms which will range from person to person. Aside from changes associated with mood, fatigue, hot flushes, etc….. many women can experience issues with pelvic prolapse, weight gain and a decrease in bone strength and density. Changes to day to day life activities with the introduction of Physiotherapy lead exercises can help with these changes and improve overall health, fitness and well-being. This change in activity level can help prevent the onset of osteoporosis, regular stretching can help improve sleep patterns and targeted exercise can help strengthen certain areas where you may be suffering from pain.
If you would like to discuss if we can help you with your problem, you are very welcome to call for a free telephone consultation to talk in confidence with a physiotherapist. We will advise you if physiotherapy or another form of management would be most appropriate.
