Both sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain and symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) are pain related to pelvis stability that many people experience during pregnancy.
The body is changing to accommodate a growing baby (or babies!) and preparing for childbirth. Just like your body is changing, your daily movement habits and exercise routine need to be modified for the journey too!
As you make modifications, it is super important to know what works and what doesn’t. For example, with SIJ pain, deep hip stretching might feel good in the moment but can actually cause the SIJ to become more unstable which makes the pain worse! For SPD, the same thing applies! Many pregnant people come to OSM having been told to stretch their groin more when in fact that can make the issue worse!
With the right guidance and support, it’s possible to be more comfortable during pregnancy and even eliminate SIJ and SPD pain altogether.
