Julia requests advice from the Guru regarding Pelvic floor pain

Apr 27th, 2015

I’m not sure this is a physio issue, BUT.. I had a baby two years ago by
c-section. I was a keen runner before. I was signed off to return to running
by a physio after six months, and a number of exercises to reduce my tummy

I’m running the Marathon in ten days, and training has gone very well.
However over the past week or so, I’ve developed a pain in what I think is my
pelvic floor. It’s like a nagging ache, feels like a bit of an internal
‘pull’ when I stand on one leg or move sideways (so generally fine when just
walking around, although the thud thud thud of running does make it ache).

Can I still run? I’ve never had any pelvic floor problems – no incontinence
or anything. And it’s not major pain – I can make it disappear with two
ibuprofen, but not sure if running 26.2 is going to do me a mischief!

Is this something I should see a physio about?

The Guru Responded:

Hi Julia


I think the answer is yes – in all instances! Pelvic floor and needing to see a Physio [pelvic floor physiotherapy].


I’m going to forward this to my specialist Women’s Heath Physio for her opinion.


Milly will be in touch shortly.
