Almost 50% of pregnant women suffer from pelvic pain and / or low back pain during pregnancy. A pelvic band can provide relief from such complaints. Tissue connections in the body change under the influence of pregnancy hormones and the burden increases with the increasing weight of the unborn child. Many complaints can be resolved by wearing a pelvic band.
Below you will find a selection of pelvic bands and pelvic braces. ProBrace is in contact with various suppliers at home and abroad. Our pelvic bands are selected with the utmost care. Need advice? Please feel free to contact with a specialist of ProBrace.
If you receive a complaint about these symptoms during pregnancy, it is important to discuss this with your obstetrician, doctor and / or physical therapist. They can best advise you on the measures to reduce your symptoms. There is not one medicine that has helped you get rid of your symptoms in one go. A physiotherapist can give muscle-strengthening exercises and can give posture and movement advice. In addition, a good supporting pelvic girdle or pelvic band can be worn.
There are different types of pelvic ligaments and pelvic braces available. Some only support the pelvis, others also the back. Depending on the nature and location of your complaints, you can only choose a support band for the pelvis. Or also a larger version that can be used as a back strap in addition to the pelvis to support the back. Regardless of the size of the pelvic band, the operation for the pelvis is the same. Circular pressure on the pelvis relieves the muscles, tendons and ligaments around the SI joint. As a result, the pain stimuli will decrease so that you will experience fewer pain complaints.
There are very clearly two opinions about this, in some cases quite strong supporters and opponents. As so often with these types of issues, there is something to be said for both opinions. Our opinion is that wearing a good pelvic band in combination with guidance from a physical therapist (and exercises) is the best treatment method. Wearing a pelvic band when there is a lot of standing has to be done reduces pain. The guidance and exercises of the physical therapist ensure that the muscles do not become weaker.
Unfortunately, there are few exercises during pregnancy that can resolve the pain. Muscle strengthening exercises, possibly in combination with a pelvic band, can ensure that the symptoms do not get worse or that they get worse. It is important to find the right balance between rest and activity. When the pain is really severe, it is often best to adopt a position in the side position with a thick cushion between the legs.
A well-fitting pelvic band is important to provide sufficient support. It may not be too narrow to prevent it from 'cutting', but not so wide that it will bend.
