Pelvic Pain in Pregnancy

by | Oct 27, 2022 | Uncategorized

Sacro Iliac Joint Pain is one of the most common issues that I see in my clinic.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It affects many women during pregnancy as it’s the main joint in the body that bears the increasing weight of the pregnancy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The hormone relaxin floods the body at around week 10 and this can start to cause issues in the pelvis area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Relaxin increases the flexibility of the ligaments which can cause pain in the area as the muscles tend to grip harder, especially if you have a pelvic alignment issue prior to pregnancy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What helps?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅A pregnancy support belt.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Avoid being on your feet too much⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Avoid long walks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Ensure your feet are well supported ( runners)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Regular massage to relax all the muscles in the area.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been treating pregnancy issues for over 10 years and would love to help you.

Wishing you all the best on your pregnancy journey.
