Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP), formerly known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) affects 1 in 5 women at some stage of their pregnancy or post partum. Pain can be at the front and/or back of your pelvis, in the hip or the groin area too. This pain is often made worse by activity. Please see the resources section for a leaflet with further information.
Women’s experience of being treated for Pelvic Girdle Pain is often frustratingly poor. I have seen women who have not had the right help and treatment they require to recover from this debilitating condition.
My approach to Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) involves taking time to listen to your story. I will then assess your pelvis, posture and any other relevant areas to find out what is causing the pain. The treatment often entails hands on physiotherapy techniques, core stability and pilates exercises and postural re-education.
Pelvic Girdle Pain can be a complex and emotive condition but I love the challenge of helping to get women better and exceed their expectations of what they can achieve afterwards.
Having experienced pelvic girdle pain firsthand, I can also understand and relate to your experience and pain. So if you’re experiencing PGP during your pregnancy or you’re still not right 20 years after having your children book now.
