ante_and_postnatal-004_mummys_physio_londonBack pain and especially the lower back pain are symptoms well known to the mothers-to-be. It often appears around the fifth month of pregnancy when the belly gets heavier. Also some women can find themselves ‘stuck’ after hoovering or by simply getting up from a chair. This intense pain travels along the leg and therefore some think this could be related to a sciatica.

Lower Back Pain,  Symphysis pubis dysfunction(SPD) and false Sciatica physiotherapy treatment during and after pregnancy in London 

Mummy’s Physio offers tailored physiotherapy treatment made by a specialist to fit your needs and relieve your back or pelvic girdle pain (symphysis pubis dysfunction, SPD). In order to provide you the most efficient rehabilitation, the physiotherapist will assess you, taking into account your medical history, your daily activities, your morphology and back position. You will do various exercises supervised by our London physiotherapist that you will have to repeat between sessions for fast and effective relief.

For condition like hyperflexibility, learning how to ‘lock’ the pelvis is the secret of a successful treatment. Muscles are used to ‘block’ and strengthen the pelvis. You will learn how to move, how to turn around by ‘block’, how to not pull on your back nor pushing on your stomach to avoid wrong movements.

Depending on the therapist opinion and on your preferences, Mummy’s Physio also provides relaxing soft and deep tissue massage.

Lower Back Pain and false sciatica during pregnancy

During pregnancy, sometimes as soon as the first semester and until right after giving birth, twinge and pinch like pains can be felt in the lower back. The pelvis is painful and the pain can only be felt from one side and from the buttock to the tight or from the the hip to the lower abdomen. This very much look like a sciatica except the pain is not felt all the way to the feet and is not constant as a change in posture can relieve it.

Why women develop back pain during pregnancy

The most obvious reason for back pain is the growth of the baby, which moves your gravity centre forward. To avoid falling forward and to maintain balance, you pull your upper body backwards which increases you lower back’s arch.
The second reason is that with the growth of the belly, your abdominal belt is stretched more than usual. Your abdominal muscles loose their tonus and strength; therefore the normal balance between the abdominal and the lower back muscles change.
The last reason is hormonal – the increase of oestrogen and relaxin secretion distends your ligament and decreases the tonus of your abdominal muscles.
Not surprisingly, these the factors combined with stress often lead to lower back pain or pelvic girdle pain.

Hypopressive Method relieves back pain. Most people suffering from back pain should not perform traditional abdominal exercises; it puts an unwanted toxic pressure on the spine.

Because the method strengthens the abdominal wall without putting hurtful pressure on the spine, it is a far better option for anybody suffering from chronic back pain.
