Are you suffering from Pelvic Pain & Instability?
Pelvic girdle pain (PGP) has been described as a collection of signs and symptoms of discomfort and pain in the pelvis and lower back (lumbopelvic) area, including musculoskeletal pain radiating to the upper thighs and perineum. Pelvic instability or PGP often occurs during or after pregnancy.
Symptoms may present as low back pain, pain when rolling in bed, pain walking up stairs, pain during exercise or pain radiating into the buttocks. It is often due to muscle imbalances and weakness in the lumbo-pelvic region. Identifying which areas need to be relaxed and which need to be strengthened is important and can be achieved through specific strengthening exercises.
Men can also have pelvic pain especially from irritation of or pressure on the pudendal nerve, which may be caused by cycling, injuries, long-term constipation and strong pelvic floor muscles.
