Pelvic Girdle Pain… it affects 1 in 5 women during their pregnancy and can be a real pain in the butt… or thigh, or hip, or groin!⁠
It is often aggravated by prolonged standing, walking or sitting . Also by activities like stair-climbing, standing on one leg to put on your undies, rolling over in bed and getting in and out of the car. ⁠ Only 1 in 4 women seek treatment for their pelvic girdle pain, despite it being one of the most limiting pains in pregnancy!⁠
Although pelvic pain is very COMMON during pregnancy, you don’t have to just put up with it. There are a number of different treatment modalities that can help you reduce your pain and/or increase your function during pregnancy!⁠

Current guidelines recommend the following to get on top of pelvic girdle pain: ⁠
  • 1. Exercise

Your physio will start you on some specific exercises and discuss how to modify your exercise routine or day-to-day tasks in an effort to reduce pain. ⁠
They may also fit you with a belt or teach you taping around your pelvis to provide relief throughout the day.
