Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction


Pelvic pain is frequently related to a disorder known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction and is common in pregnant women and new mothers.

What Causes SPD?


When a woman is pregnant, the body produces a hormone called Relaxin. This hormone softens the ligaments in the Symphysis Pubis – the rigid joint which connects the two halves of the pelvis – To prepare the body for giving birth.As the pelvis becomes more flexible the joints begin to move more freely which can cause pain and inflammation.

SPD Symptoms


  • Pain in the pubic area or groin.
  • Back pain, pelvic pain or hip pain.
  • Clicking or grinding of the pelvis.
  • Pain down the inside of the thighs.
  • Pain is heightened at night time.

SPD Treatment

Physiotherapy and gentle exercises can help the body to recover.A pelvic support belt, also known as a Serola Belt , is the quickest way to get relief during and after pregnancy and is an excellent way to help the body recover.

Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction can also occur after the birth and can make exercising a chore.
