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.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
