Pregnancy Related Low Back Pain Specialists
Pregnancy related low back pain is a common condition during pregnancy. Typically starting during the second or third trimester, pregnancy related low back pain can be related to the increase in a hormone called Relaxin.
Relaxin causes softening of ligaments in preparation for the baby to exit the birth canal safely, but in some cases it can lead to the onset of pregnancy related low back pain and pelvic girdle pain due to over-loading of the soft tissue structures of this area.
At MSO Physio our pregnancy related back pain specialist physiotherapist can help you deal with your pregnancy related low back and pelvic girdle pain. With extensive knowledge and experience of this specialised area of physiotherapy our pregnancy related back pain specialist is here to help you. Following thorough assessment our expert pregnancy related back pain specialist will recommend the most appropriate and evidence based treatment options for your back pain or pelvic girdle pain.
Whether you require simple lifestyle modifications, walking aid advice, support belts, exercise rehabilitation, Pilates or manual therapy our Sutton based team are here to help.
Ante-Post Natal Pilates
Pilates during and after pregnancy can greatly help to limit or manage symptoms felt during the latter stages of pregnancy and during the post-natal phase. Ante and post-natal Pilates uses traditional Pilates exercises adapted for the different ante and post-natal stages.
Pre-natally and especially in the third trimester time spent lying on your back is reduced to a minimum and both pre and post-natal Pilates places great emphasis on engaging your abdominals and gluteals to provide as much pelvic control and stability as possible.
Ante and post-natal Pilates can include matwork exercises for core stability and general mobility and flexibility plus the use of small equipment and large equipment such as the Reformer for more advanced work.
Each specific ante and post-natal Pilates exercise is adapted and individualised where required to suit the needs of the person.
At MSO Physio we have physiotherapists who specialise in ante and post-natal Pilates and the management of pain and problems associated with pregnancy. Clients will always be seen on an individual basis first to understand their particular needs and then both 1-2-1 and small group classes are possible under the watchful eye of a specialist physiotherapist in our dedicated studio.
Pregnancy Related Low Back Pain Specialists
Pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions are largely due to the stresses and strains of carrying a developing baby and in the latter staged of pregnancy can be due to the release of the hormone Relaxin into the body to soften the ligaments of the pelvis in preparation for giving birth. Expectant mothers can suffer with a variety of pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions including pelvic girdle pain, pubic symphysitis and pregnancy related low back pain.
Post-natally some mums will be aware of a gap between their abdominals, this is called a Rectus Abdominus Diastasis and is the result of the main tendon of the abdominals being stretched as the baby grows. This can recover somewhat during the first few months post-natally and can be helped by the performing the right type of exercise.
Pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions can be disabling especially where pain around the pelvis is concerned as this is where bodyweight is transmitted from the spine to the legs during standing and walking. Physiotherapy can be of great benefit for pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions. For a full list of conditions that we may be able to help you with please see below.

"I was under the care of Nick suffering from pelvic misalignment, muscle spasm and sciatica. During the time I underwent treatment I was accurately diagnosed with an impingement of the sciatic nerve which was later confirmed with an MRI scan as a bulging lumbar disc.
During the time I received treatment, I experienced relief from the symptoms and was given a series of exercises to carry out for self-care in between appointments. Nick was very practical and pragmatic with the advice he gave me, informing me that surgery is really a last resort and that there are various other options to help recover from the issue.
I have now been given the opportunity of receiving Pilates in a class run at the clinic by a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist, which will be bespoke treatment for the spinal issue I am experiencing. I would happily recommend this clinic and their staff to anyone experiencing any issues."
