Description


Pubic Symphysis SPD Support Kit

The Pubic Symphysis SPD Support Kit contains:

  • 1 Maternity Belt- Babybellyband Original or SPORT
  • 1 set of Compression Therapy Groin Bands
  • 1 Ultra Hot and Cold Therapy Pack

The Babybellyband Maternity belt with groin bands relieves pelvic pain in pregnancy by supporting and stabilizing the pubic bone, hips, and sacroiliac joint (si joint).  Adding -on the compression therapy groin bands helps prevent further separation of the pubic bone and provides excellent support.  Wear the Babybellyband low on the hips (see video) to stabilize the pelvic joints, pubic bone, and sacroiliac joint.  Add the Compression Therapy Groin Bands by criss-crossing them in front of the pubic bone helps to support and stabilize the pubic symphysis bone separation.  This is vital to preventing further separation throughout pregnancy.

What is Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction – SPD (Separation of the Pubic Bone) Yikes!

First of all, you are not alone, pelvic pain in pregnancy occurs in 48-71% of women and pubic bone separation (SPD) occurs in 31% of pregnancies !  What happens to cause this? During pregnancy, the hormone Relaxin is released in your body to allow ligaments to stretch (ligaments are the stretchy things that hold bones together).  Often the ligaments around your pelvic bone become too loose, creating an unstable pelvic joint and painful sensations or shooting pain in the pubic area and/or sacroiliac (si) joint or lower back.  In many cases, this can lead to a gap in the pubic bone, or pubic symphysis dysfunction (SPD). This can cause pain through the pelvis, groin and buttocks.  In severe cases of SPD the symphysis pubis may partially or completely rupture. When the gap in the pubic bone increases to more than 10 mm this is known as diastasis of the symphysis pubis.  You can do lots of things to help relieve this pain starting with using the Babybellyband Pubic Symphysis Support Kit to support your pubic bones and avoid further separation to occur.  Here are a few more tips to identify if you have SPD and how to relieve the pain.

Symptoms of SPD

The symptoms of Pubic Symphysis:

  • shooting pain in the pubic bone
  • radiating pain into the lower abdomen, back, groin, perineum, thigh, and/or leg
  • sharp pain while walking or abducting hips (opening legs)
  • discomfort and pain with activities of daily living, including bending forward, standing on one leg, rising from a chair, go up or down stairs, turning in bed
  • increased pain during weight-bearing activities (picking up another child, groceries, or lifting objects)
  • clicking, snapping or grinding in pelvic area
  • sex inter vaginally causes more pain
  • pain is relieved during rest

How to heal or treat Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction – SPD:

  • Stabilization or Pelvic floor exercises such as pelvic tilts and keigels lead by a trained pelvic floor therapist will help tremendously for those suffering from this pregnancy ailment.
  • Manual therapy by a physical therapist or chiropractor.  Talk to your doctor about referring you to a PT or chiropractor.
  • Maternity belt with Compression Therapy Groin Bands is key to supporting the pelvic bone and holding everything in place for the least amount of pain possible especially while carrying the weight of your baby.
  • Ice packs can be used for fifteen minutes at a time on the lower back and sacroiliac joints or on
    the symphysis pubis
  • Support your belly at night with a pillow to relieve pain
  • Sleep with a pillow between the knees
  • Take a smaller step when you walk
  • Avoid stairs or walk up sideways one step at a time
