Pregnancy: Lower Back Pain and Pelvic Pain by Katie Gore
Are you pregnant and experiencing pain in your lower back and pelvic region?
This could be due to a common condition called pelvic girdle pain. Common symptoms of this condition are pain in any or all of the pelvic joints, …
and also often the muscles around the pelvis, buttocks and lower back. People often describe it like “being kicked by a horse!” or “a dull ache or cramp in outside of hips”. Common things that make it worse are activities such as: walking, prolonged standing, rolling over in bed, prolonged sitting and stairs.
If this sounds familiar we may be able to help… Often pregnant women are told that these pains are because of hormone changes.
There is much evidence now to show that this is not often the case, and it can be due to the changes in how your body is moving during pregnancy…
Treatment can include any combinations of the following: core strengthening, massage, stretches, manual therapy to name a few and is most often very effective! So why struggle on?
