Lumbo-Pelvic Dysfunction & Pain

Our therapists at PhysioMotion are trained using the most effective assessment and treatment techniques to treat conditions that require expert knowledge in the lumbar spine and the pelvic girdle – both the sacroiliac joint and pubic symphysis. Many chronic and acute lower back pain; sacroiliac joint dysfunction; recurrent muscle strains (hamstring, groin and calf muscles); chronic headaches and pregnancy related discomfort (pubic symphysis and sacroiliac joint pain) are related to the lumbo-pelvic area.

More so, we are able to ascertain whether the biomechanics of the lumbar spine in relation to the pelvic girdle are optimal and how they are being affected by all other regions of the body. This holistic approach will relieve acute pain within these specific areas, whilst also addressing other loads contributing to their dysfunction.

Using our real-time ultrasound imaging equipment, we are able to assess and effectively treat imbalances and weaknesses in any of your core stabilising muscles. The proper use of these muscles (transversus abdominus, multifidis, pelvic floor, thoracic and hip stabilisers) and how they co-ordinate with other ‘global’ muscles are imperative to the long-term management of any chronic condition.
