Pelvic Girdle Pain

Pain experienced around the lower back, hips, thighs & pelvic joints is termed Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). This is a common condition in pregnant women, with some women feeling mild discomfort while others experience intense pain & decrease in mobility.

Pelvic Girdle Pain Symptoms

Around 20-25% of pregnant women feel pelvic girdle pain towards the latter months of their pregnancy, with the pain being particularly extreme during labour.

Following are the common pelvic girdle pain symptoms that may differ as per the severity of the condition:

  • Hip pain & inflammation in the hip joints
  • Restrained hip movement
  • Mobility issues experienced while sitting/standing
  • Curved back while standing
  • Clicking noises heard from the pelvis/hip joints
  • Intense pain felt while climbing stairs
  • Radiating pain down the legs
  • Pain experienced during sex
  • Bladder or bowel-linked problems

Pelvic Girdle Pain Causes

Pelvic girdle pain causes or risk factors comprise:

  • Arthritis or osteoarthritis
  • Weight gain in a short time period
  • Injury-inflicted trauma to pelvic muscles
  • Fall or accident
  • Rising weight of the baby
  • Alterations in the centre of gravity
  • Surge in the hormone ‘relaxin’ causing instability in the hip joints
  • Loosening of upper back & hamstring muscles causing changes in posture

Pelvic Girdle Pain Diagnosis

Taking into account your symptoms and medical history, the healthcare provider (usually a physiotherapist) will conduct a physical exam to check for PGP.

The following diagnostic tests could also be done to ensure a precise diagnosis:

  • Pregnancy tests in women of reproductive age
  • Abdominal & pelvic X-rays
  • Bone density scan involving x-rays
  • MRI
  • Urine & blood tests
  • Tests to detect STDs like gonorrhoea and/or chlamydia
