Pelvic Girdle Pain Treatment in Fulham at Fulham Osteopaths

Common Causes Of Pelvic Girdle Pain

Pelvic Girdle Pain refers to any muscular or joint pain in women affecting lower back, hips, pelvis, groin and upper legs. An overview of the causes include:
During pregnancy, the pelvic girdle loosens in preparation for child birth. This is referred to as 'Sacro-Iliac Joint Strain'.
Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction - a joint at the front between two bones of your pelvis.
Twisted Pelvis - This can be inherited at birth or develop over time.

Pelvic Girdle Pain Explained In Plain English

Pelvic girdle pain usually relates to trouble that starts during pregnancy and delivery, but it can have wider implications.

As the name suggests it can cover any of the muscles and joints in the pelvic area from the base of the spine to your hips and down to your upper legs, including the groin area.

Common Causes Of Pelvic Girdle Pain In More Detail

Sacro-Iliac Joint Strain

These hard to visualise joints are very strong and tough, and sit where your pelvis meets your spine. In pregnancy everything loosens up to allow for delivery, but can lead these joints open to strain and mis-position.

Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction (PSD)

This refers to a join at the front between two bones of your pelvis. If there are strains in your back, hips or pelvis, the joint here can be strained and very painful. This generally responds very well to an overall balancing treatment to take the strain off.

Twisted Pelvis

Here tissues across the sole of the foot, sometimes especially where it meets the heel, are overstressed, chronically tight and inflamed, and very painful.

Katherine was great! I had repetitive injuries in my back from sport and after 3 sessions she gave me the tools to prevent these injuries from happening again. Highly recommend.

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
