Pregnancy-related Pelvic Girdle Pain is treatable.

Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP), formerly known as Symphsis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). There is a wide range of symptoms and the severity varies between women. In most cases PGP is a treatable condition by an experienced manual therapist at any stage of pregnancy.

The Pelvic Partnership charity can help you by offering evidence-based information to support you towards making a full recovery as quickly as possible.


Do I have PGP? 

The main symptoms are pain while walking, climbing stairs and turning over in bed. This means that it affects virtually everything you do in a day, which can have a major impact on your life. Pain can be at the front and/or back of your pelvis, at any stage during or after pregnancy.

> What is PGP?

Can PGP be treated? 

Yes! PGP is treatable at any stage of pregnancy or postnatally as soon as you feel able to visit a experienced manual therapist (physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor). PGP is caused by the joints in the pelvis not moving symmetrically or becoming stuck, which means it is easy to treat.
