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:
pain
During pregnancy, the pelvic girdle loosens in preparation for child birth. This is referred to as 'Sacro-Iliac Joint Strain'.
pain
Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction - a joint at the front between two bones of your pelvis.
pain
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 goes above and beyond and I feel very lucky to have met her. She has been treating my son for the last 10 months. After each session, we notice big improvements as Melinda helps him being more comfortable within his body in order to achieve his next developmental milestone. Melinda leverages her knowledge and experience to adapt to her patients needs, treating a baby isn’t easy but she always finds a way. Plus she always makes sure I understand how she is working with my son and share with me some things that we can do at home in between the sessions. Her kindness is just the cherry on the cake :)

I strongly recommend Fulham Osteopaths. Senior Osteopath Verena treated both myself and my newborn shortly after birth. We were both treated very gently and attentively and we both left feeling a lot better- my hip pain disappeared and babies tensions from birth were released. Thank you Verena! 🙏

We’ve been working with Verena to help with some long term covid issues and she has been wonderful. Very caring and thorough and puts us at complete ease with her thoughtful demeanour. She really listens and always responds with new suggestions to help improve the situation.

We chose to go to an osteopath after our little one suffered from reflux as well being an unstable lie during pregnancy, so he was very tense with an uncomfortable posture. After the first session with Katie along with myself and my husband doing the exercises given by Katie in between, we noticed a huge difference, we now have a very happy baby. We could not recommend Katie enough. She put us at ease and explained everything. We will definitely go back to Katie should we have any issues in the future.

Verena is amazing. The hip pain and pelvic floor dysfunction I had been working on with a physiotherapist for over a year was relieved almost immediately! I have hEDS and particularly recommend her for those with hypermobility also.

Verena was absolutely lovely and very gentle with my baby. He was always unusually calm and relaxed by the end of a session. Thoroughly recommend.

I went to visit Elyse, practically unable to walk. The pain in my knee was unbearable and couldn’t take weight and it felt like I’d done some irreparable damage. Within an hour - she had fixed me and given me some brilliant but short and easy exercises. I can’t recommend her enough

I visited Fulham Osteopaths for a treatment as entering my 3rd trimester of pregnancy has caused me some signifiant back stiffness. I was lucky enough to be treated by Melinda, the owner. I love the passion and nurturing approach she has and the focus on a holistic and natural side of treatment. It felt like she directed my body to find the balance and solve the issues. Instant improvement! I can highly recommend the place. The passion for improving people's lives and high quality customer service is visible from the moment you enter the place. Highly, highly recommended!
