Physio or osteopath for SPD?

27 weeks today and my SPD is getting worse. Seeing my midwife on Monday so will ask her but interested in whether Pepe would recommend physio or osteopathy or a mix? If a mix is possible?

I strongly recommend Bowen therapy. It's the only thing recommended by the Pelvic Instability Network.

Your SPD is likely to go after birth - though I had a severe case and mine did not. Physio is useful after birth. Before they'll just give you a support band and crutches.

I tried everything, including osteotherspy, which was useless.

Bowen gave me my life back.

Osteopath helped me lots after my severe spd.

I used a chiropractor trained in pregnancy.

4th pregnancy, 2nd with severe pgp.
I have a really good NHS physio who specialises in women's health. She has provided exercises, physio (also taught to my husband) and acupuncture. I also saw a chiropractor last pregnancy and although it felt good at the time of treatment, it was expensive and no long lasting effects.
