At PhysioPlus we can help to manage Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) or Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), a painful disorder during pregnancy. Our physiotherapy treatment involves the restoration of correct posture which is vital to maintain optimal balance between the pelvis and spine.
Womens Health – The pelvis becomes very mobile secondary to hormonal changes during pregnancy. The muscles attaching to the bones of the pelvis, the sacrum, the coccyx, the hips and the lumbar spine may become stressed as they try to compensate for the increased mobility and lack of stability.
They may tighten up, often developing trigger points and becoming painful.
At PhysioPlus our physiotherapy treatment involves the restoration of correct posture which is vital to maintain optimal balance between the pelvis and spine.
Manual therapy techniques help realign the pelvis and lumbar spine whilst relearning normal movement patterns and core stability provide the pelvis with the stability that it has lost.
Correct rehabilitation of the pelvic floor is also central to treatment of Pelvic Girdle Pain and also in the treatment of Bladder Dysfunction. Your pelvic floor muscles are a broad sling of muscles, ligaments and sheet-like tissues that stretch from your pubic bone at the front of your body, to the base of your spine at the back.
There are many forms of bladder dysfunction e.g. stress incontinence and urge incontinence and therefore a comprehensive, detailed assessment with your Specialist Physiotherapist is essential prior to undertaking a pelvic floor program.
We also provide Ante and Post Natal Pilates classes. If you would like to find out more about womans health or wish to book an appointment please feel free to contact us by clicking here and filling in your details in the online form. Alternatively please phone us directly on (057) 866 0663.
