Pelvic Girdle Pain Sessions #01

Pelvic Girdle Pain Therapy Sessions

What is Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)?

During pregnancy the body produces a hormone called relaxin, which softens the ligaments (the tough, flexible tissues that connect your bones) in your pelvis and other joints. This helps the baby to pass through the pelvis during birth. As a result, these joints move more during and just after pregnancy. It is thought that the softening of the ligaments combined with changes in the body put too much stress on the joints, ligaments and muscles of pelvis and led to pain. Pain at the back of the pelvis steams from Sacroiliac Joint and is sometimes referred to as SIJ. Pain at the front of pelvis around the pubic bone steams from the Sympysis Pubis Joint and is often referred to a SDP.

What are the symptoms of PGP?
Pubic pain when:
  • Walking
  • Walking up and down stairs
  • Sitting down or standing up
  • Getting in and out of a car
  • Getting dressed
  • Rolling over in bed

  • One or both legs may feel weak and you may find it difficult to lift your legs
  • Sciatica type symptoms (pain in buttocks and down the leg)
  • Pain in the hips
  • Pain in the lower part of the back around the sacroiliac joint
  • The pain is often one sided
  • Pain when moving the legs apart
