In pregnancy, pelvic joints become painful and irritable. The changing physique of the spine and pelvis posture with growing bellies and the actions of the pregnancy-related hormone relaxin are the cause. Relaxin softens the soft tissues about the pelvic joints, allowing some give to otherwise very stiff joints in preparation for birth.
Physiotherapy management of these pregnancy related pains is very useful. Treatment can vary from gentle joint re-alignment techniques to massage and core stability exercises for the pelvic muscles. There are many other alternatives also to treatment to help you get through these times with less pain, including:
prescription of sacral or pelvic belt to offer support and compression to the pelvis
simple supportive taping techniques around the pelvis
prescription of SRC Pregnancy and Recovery shorts
