What is pregnancy related pelvic pain (also known as SPD or PGP)?
Pelvic pain (also known as symphysis pubis dysfunction or pelvic girdle pain) is a common complaint among pregnant women or women who have just delivered a baby. It is caused by the ‘softening’ of the pelvis during pregnancy. Research shows that one out of every five pregnant or newly delivered women suffers from pelvic pain and one out of every twenty is severely limited in her daily activities.
