At PhysioMotion we treat the following pelvic girdle and spinal dysfunctions:
Sacroiliac joint (SIJ), pubic symphysis (PS) & pelvic girdle pain (PGP)
∙ Pregnancy related SIJ, PS and PGP
∙ Scoliosis – functional & structural
∙ Prolapsed intervertebral discs (‘slipped discs’)
∙ Lower back pain
∙ Post-surgical spinal procedures
∙ Chronic muscle strains and hip pain due to lower back-pelvic disorders
∙ Leg length discrepancies related to asymmetry scoliosis’ & pelvic girdle dysfunction
Our therapists at PhysioMotion use 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 attempt 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 aims to 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 treat imbalances and weaknesses in any of your core stabilising muscles. The proper use of these muscles (diaphragm, transversus abdominus, multifidis, pelvic floor, thoracic and hip stabilisers) and how they coordinate with other ‘global’ muscles are important to the long-term management of any chronic condition. The dynamic stability of these muscles will be trained and be integrated into sport specific goals.
Ultimately, we will treat any pelvic girdle issues from the lower back, SIJ’s and PS joints to aim to get you back to optimal health.
