The Pelvic Partnership provides women and healthcare professionals with information about best practice for the treatment and management of pregnancy-related PGP, and to enable and empower women to access the right treatment. We have packed our website with information about PGP, so please do have a read, and use and share this resource.
Learn more about PGP and what to expect from treatment in the videos below.
PGP is a biomechanical pelvic joint problem, previously known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). PGP affects 1 in 5 pregnant women and symptoms can occur at any stage during or following pregnancy. PGP causes pain and stiffness in the pelvic joints, and difficulty walking, climbing stairs and turning in bed.
Please remember, #pgpistreatable with hands-on manual therapy, such as physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic. Manual therapy is encouraged at any stage or pregnancy or postpartum.
