Causes - Pelvic Girdle Pain
Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) in pregnancy is the potentially debilitating pain that some women experience when the pelvis looses stability and alignment. The pelvic floor can often become overactive as a result of the "hanging on" that sets up to compensate for the lack of stability of the pelvis.
If this instability continues without some therapeutic intervention to correct it, the pelvic floor will continue to develop this negative holding pattern and symptoms associated with pelvic floor dysfunction will develop.
Manual therapy of the pelvis and the pelvic floor will help restore the balance. Therapeutic exercise under the guidance of a Chartered Physiotherapist or other Health Professional with experience of PGP is important. The techniques described on this site form a part of that rehabilitation.
See the website www.pelvicpartnership.org.uk for more information on PGP.
