Lumbar Tailbone Gluteal Pain
During Pregnancy, mild to moderate pain in the lower back, gluteal regions, pelvic region, and tailbone area is quite common. Thankfully, such discomfort is usually self-resolving. It can often be managed with massage, stretching, and exercise. Correction of posture and the use of an abdominal support belt helps. There is also some benefit to be had from warm baths and intermittent use of heating pads.
When symptoms are severe, activity-limiting or persistent, the pain can cause significant deterioration in Quality of Life. These patients are best treated under the care of a doctor that specialized in care of the posterior pelvic compartment and the pelvic floor.
Our experienced doctors safely and effectively treat these disorders during pregnancy. After ruling out dangerous causes of the symptoms, we hone our diagnosis to the underlying source for the severe pain. Common sources include:
Levator Ani Syndrome
Pelvic Floor Inflammation
We expertly treat these disorders with office-based procedures, postural and muscular retraining, deep tissue pressure, and biomechanical manipulation. Medications and injections are used sparingly when indicated as they tend to provide very short-term relief and intensify the symptoms in the long run.
We strongly believe that being pregnant should not mean you have to be miserable. Call us to schedule an evaluation. We can provide immediate and long-lasting relief.
