For treatment of pain and joint problems

Please don’t suffer in silence – help and treatment are available and often alleviate pain. The earlier you are treated the better as this can stop pain getting worse.  This includes common symptoms in the lower back and pelvic girdle.  These specialists are often excellent at helping the pelvis realign so you can have an easier birth too.
