WHAT IS Pregnancy PHYSIOTHERAPY?
We have a special interest in Pregnancy and Women’s Health at Sunderland Physiotherapy Clinic.
All Physiotherapy appointments are with either Lindsey, Sharon or Debs who are specialist musculoskeletal Physiotherapists with over 36 years combined experience.
Pregnancy related pains are common and in most cases is treatable. These can include lower back pain, postural tension, especially around neck and shoulders and pelvic girdle pain (PGP). This is often misdiagnosed as SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction).
PGP can happen at any stage in your pregnancy. It can give you pain and a feeling of instability anywhere within the pelvis, front (around your pubic bone), lower back/ bottom or at the side (around the bony bit of your hips). You may have difficulty walking, especially up and down stairs/ on and off curbs, getting on and off chairs/ in and out the car and turning over in bed.
If your PGP has been misdiagnosed or not treated during your pregnancy your may still experience problems post-natal. Booking in for a Mummy MOT would be recommended at this stage to further assess your posture, breathing, tummy and pelvic floor muscles.
