Hello, my name is Jaasha Pena, I’m a pelvic health therapist here at Brooks Rehabilitation. Today, I’d like to talk with you about pelvic girdle pain, also known as lightning crotch.

Pelvic girdle pain usually onsets during pregnancy or postpartum due to an increase in ligamentous laxity, secondary to the hormone changes that you experience.

Pain is usually here at the pubic symphysis, or it might be called symphysis pubis dysfunction, and also here at the sacroiliac or SI joints.

As a pelvic health physical therapist, we treat pelvic girdle pain with the use of SI belts. We also look at your pelvic alignment and make sure that everything is aligned the way it’s supposed to be.

We work on strengthening the muscles that support and stabilize your pelvis so that you can live pain free.

Thank you.
