The Pelvic Partnership is a group of women, all volunteers, with personal experience of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), which is now known as Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). We prefer this description as pain can be felt anywhere in the pelvis and is not restricted to the symphysis pubis. Therefore we will use PGP throughout the site. We all have personal experience of PGP and have developed extensive experience and information about the condition. Our aim is to reduce the problems other women experience and speed up their recovery by sharing this information as widely as possible.

Our aims are:

  • To offer information and support to women with PGP.
  • To extend this information and support to their families, friends and carers.
  • To promote knowledge of good practice for the management and treatment of PGP among healthcare professionals.
  • To raise awareness among healthcare professionals about the impact of PGP on women and how this can be minimised by effective treatment and management.
  • To share our strong belief that PGP is a common, treatable and manageable condition.

PGP is a common and, in most cases, treatable condition using manual therapy techniques.
Please join us to help us to support you through our literature and helpline. Your membership will also help other women with PGP and enable us to raise the profile of PGP among both women and professionals.
