During my first pregnancy I experienced pubic symphysis pain at 25 weeks. My consultant highly recommended Galway City Physiotherapy for specialised treatment of back and pelvic pain in pregnancy. The treatment that I recieved kept me moving and shortened my post natal recovery time. Two singletons and one set of twins down the line I am deeply grateful to them that my crutches are gathering dust in the garage,
