Pelvic girdle pain (PGP) is a condition that causing pain in the pelvic joints. It affects up to one in five pregnant women and can continue after your baby is born.
PGP may occur at any stage in pregnancy. It is characterised by pain in the pelvic girdle, either in the lower back area or at the front, in the pubic bone. It is frequently triggered by pregnancy due to the increase in specific hormones during pregnancy, increased load and the altered weight bearing patterns that Mums often adopt. All of these factors lead to mechanical changes in the joints around the pelvis and lower back.
