Tjis is going to be a big whinge sorry...I'm in agony all day every day and I'm not even 24 weeks. Terrified if how much worse its going to get! I see the physio once a week as is. I've got two different belts but neither seem to do much to ease the pain anymore. I've heard ppl go to chiropracters and although I'm not a fan, I'm at the stage where I will pretty much try anything if it will reduce the pain. It hurts to get up, to walk anywhere, it hurts to roll over in bed, it just hurts all the time unless I'm laying down, so that's all I've done this week and it's getting a but depressing I also have chronic back pain so thought my pain threshold was quite high from dealing with that, but I think this is worse!!Any help appreciated!

Any tips for dealing with SPD?
28-02-2012 16:53 #2
I only got SPD after the birth of DD. My OB sent me to a Physio which did very, very little. I went completely against the grain and went to an osteopath out of desperation (it felt like someone had taken a sledge hammer to my pelvis). He has worked wonders and I would highly recommend going to a chiro/Osteo.

Hi bada, where abouts are you? If you are in Brisbane I can recommend a chiro that was recommended to me by my doula. All the best

Omg you poor dear! Go tithe hospi and get crutches helped so much for me just to take the weight off when walking seriously it helped enormously!!! I'm only 9 wks pregnant and an see no doubts I'll get SPD again... And wheat packs but no much else will help with pain that severe for SPD I'm sorry ur going through this! I feel for you! Xx

I highly, highly recommend a chiropractor! If you can find one that practices the Webster technique - even better!
I was paralyzed with pain, and I mustered up the courage and saw a chiro and after the first appointment I RAN out of the office to the car, DF was in disbelief! I saw him for the rest of my pregnancy and I had the best pregnancy for the last 8 weeks, I even had no problems with sleep!

SPD sucks, big time!
Make sure your physio is a obstetrically trained and a pre and post natal specialist. It will make the world of difference. I went to an AMAZING physio in Sydney (don't know where you are based?). She was so thorough. Lots of dos and do-nots, pages of exercises to do, taught my DH a nightly pressure-point massage... it helped a lot.
For example, has your current physio told you to avoid stairs, and where that isn't possible to climb slowly two feet to a step? Or to get in and out of the car with your legs together, and drive with the seat as close to the wheel as you comfortably can?

Thanks Brolly. Though I'm thinking I might try osteo first...
Lucy, I see the hospital physio and this week I was in such agony she hit the specialist women's physio to help out. It's at the point now though that I really can't do much by way of excercises.
Ive been taking panadeine for the lat three days. I don't feel good about it since I never even took a Panadol with DD, but it's given me some relief, still painful but I can walk without crutches. They said to only take them for a few days and now that few days is up I don't know wtf I'm going to do I guess I'll try osteo first and see hiw it goes, then maybe chiro?
Did you guys take any pain relief?
Oh and to PP who was 9 weeks I really really hope it doesn't get u this time. I've heard it doesn't happen with every pregnancy so fx!
