Pregnancy Related Pain (PRP)
Lower back and pelvic pain are common problems during pregnancy. Approximately 20% of pregnant women have symptoms which can include pain in the spine, sacro-iliac joint, buttock, hip, coccyx, symphysis pubis joint, lower abdomen and thighs.
In Forth Valley the Pelvic Health Physiotherapy team receive more than 700 referrals every year for women experiencing these problems. Often simple changes can significantly improve your symptoms so the Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Team has developed a clinic specifically to provide essential assessment and treatment and reduce long waiting lists for this common condition. The clinic aims to help you understand why you are having symptoms and what you can do to reduce the impact of PGP on your daily life
