    Default Melbourne Chiropractor for Unstable Pelvis/SPD

    Long story short. I've had an unstable pelvis/SPD since Week 28 of my pregnancy and it continued after the birth (infact probably worse) which has been a MAJOR pain in the bum particularly as it is putting me off having a second child (and I'm an old fart so can't dilly dally).

    I've had physio and that has helped a bit but I've also read that physio will only help so much and that if there's an underlying misalignment in the pelvis then chiropracty (I don't think that's a word) will be the best way to go.

    DP has put his foot down and INSISTED that I go and see a chiropractor because he is sick of me moping around and saying we can't have another baby because I couldn't face another nearly 12 months of pain again.

    Actually, that wasn't very short at all but I feel better!

    So does anyone know a chiropractor who specialises in pregnancy/post-pregnancy stuff who works near Northcote. I don't drive so would have to be close to the Epping/Hurstbridge lines or in the CBD.

    Thanks BBers.

    Hi,

    I too had pelvic instability with my 3rd pregnancy only. I found great relief from an osteopath. The treatment is very gentle (it almost doesn't feel like they are doing anything!), but then the pain started to subside. I also went back post baby for a few more treatments. Once I was nearly pain free I went to an 'exercise physiologist' who gave me exercises to do in the gym to strengthen my core stabilising muscles. I'm now pain free in this area, unless I lay on my back on a hard surface for too long! My girlfriend had a severe case and her doctor put her in this body girtle thing that really helped her. My osteo is in Malvern East - probably a bit far for you to travel.

    Cheers, Mary

    Thanks guys - I'll bear the osteopathy in mind. Not sure what the difference is between what they do and what a chiropractor does so will do a bit of googling.
