Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction

Many women who suffer from Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) believe that their pain is a normal part of pregnancy. At Crux Sport & Spine, we know that severe pain and discomfort during pregnancy is not normal.

Our Approach to SPD

Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), is a condition that affects the pelvic joint, specifically the symphysis pubis. During pregnancy, hormonal changes can lead to increased joint mobility, causing the pelvic bones to become unstable and misaligned. This can result in pain and discomfort around the pelvic region, groin, lower back, and hips. SPD can make it challenging to walk, climb stairs, or perform everyday activities, impacting the quality of life for pregnant individuals. With specialized care and treatments, such as chiropractic adjustments and exercises, Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction can be managed effectively, helping expectant mothers find relief and enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy experience.

Symptoms of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction

    • Pain during one-legged activities (lunges, stairs, running)
    • Discomfort with rolling over in bed
    • Increased discomfort getting in and out of a vehicle
    • Tenderness at the pubic bone
    • Severe pain surrounding the groin region
