Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction

Hips

What is symphysis pubis dysfunction?

Pubic symphysis dysfunction is a condition that affects your pelvis. It can cause pain in your hips, lower back and groin.

Pubic symphysis dysfunction is a condition in which the joint between the pubic bones begins to separate. This can cause pain in the hips, lower back and groin.

It is also known as pelvic girdle pain or PGP.

What are the types of pubic symphysis dysfunction?

There are three types of pubic symphysis dysfunction:

Acute pubic symphysis dysfunction.

This type of dysfunction can occur after childbirth or other trauma to the pelvis, and symptoms include pain in the lower abdomen and groin area.

Subacute pubic symphysis dysfunction

This type of dysfunction occurs when an injury to the pubic symphysis joint does not heal properly, resulting in pain and instability in the pelvic area.

Chronic pubic symphysis dysfunction

Chronic pubic symphysis dysfunction occurs when an underlying condition, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, causes inflammation of the pubic symphysis joint.

What are the symptoms of pubic symphysis dysfunction?

Symptoms of pubic symphysis dysfunction may include pain in the groin or pelvic area that gets worse when you walk or stand up. You may also feel this pain when you try to get out of bed, sit up or even roll over in bed.

Pubic symphysis dysfunction can also cause inflammation of the pelvis. You may notice swelling around the area where the two bones meet.

If you think you have pubic symphysis dysfunction, see your doctor for an evaluation.

What causes pubic symphysis dysfunction?

Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction is a joint problem that can cause pain in the pubic area. It is caused by an injury to the pubic symphysis, which is a connective joint between the two pelvic bones.

The causes of pubic symphysis dysfunction include:

  • Childbirth (being pregnant or giving birth)
  • Obesity or overweight
  • Pregnancy in the late teens or early twenties
  • High activity level
  • Being overweight or obese

What are the risk factors for pubic symphysis dysfunction?

Risk factors for pubic symphysis dysfunction include:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Osteoporosis (which causes a decrease in bone density)
  • Previous pelvic surgery
  • Fracture of the pelvis or fracture of one of the sacroiliac joints (the bones that connect the spine and pelvis).

How can I prevent pubic symphysis dysfunction?

If you want to prevent pubic symphysis dysfunction, here are some tips to help you:

  • Avoid sitting for long periods of time (more than 5 hours).
  • Stretch your hips and lower back regularly.
  • Use a support belt when you are active.
  • Try not to lift heavy objects with your legs alone, but rather use your legs in conjunction with your hips and core muscles.

What are the exercises for pubic symphysis dysfunction?

Exercises for pubic symphysis dysfunction are varied and depend on the severity of your condition.

Pelvic floor presses

This exercise is for people with pubic symphysis dysfunction. It consists of contracting and releasing the pelvic floor muscles around the pubic bone.

It involves contracting the pelvic floor muscles to push them down and release them. You should do this exercise for about 10 seconds at a time and repeat it 10 times a day.

Inner Thigh Stretch

This exercise is also fairly simple but can be a little more difficult than the pelvic floor stretches because you are using both legs instead of just one!

It involves slowly bending your right leg toward your chest and dropping it to your side while keeping your left leg straight and on the ground. Then switch sides and repeat the exercise 10 times a day.

Pelvic tilt

Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Slowly lift your hips off the floor while keeping your lower back pressed against the floor; hold this position for 5 seconds before lowering yourself back down – repeat 10 times a day.

What are the treatments for pubic symphysis dysfunction?

Treatment for pubic symphysis dysfunction varies depending on the severity of the condition. In some cases, patients do not need any treatment. In other cases, the patient may need surgery to correct the problem.

Treatment options include:

  • Medication to relieve pain and inflammation.
  • Physical therapy to strengthen muscles and facilitate movement
  • Exercises to help relax the muscles in the pelvic area

Explanation of Recommended Orthotic Device

Hips

Which orthosis is used for pubic symphysis dysfunction?

The Sacroloc back brace is an excellent brace for pubic symphysis dysfunction.

The pubic symphysis is the joint between the two hip bones where they meet at the front of the pelvis. When you have pubic symphysis dysfunction, this joint becomes weak and painful, which can make it difficult to move without pain or discomfort.

The Sacroloc back brace is an excellent choice for managing pubic symphysis dysfunction, as it helps stabilize this area of the body while allowing you to move freely enough to do what you need to do during your day. The brace also relieves the pain associated with pubic symphysis dysfunction by providing support and compression around the pelvis and lower abdomen.
