Almost 50% of pregnant women experience 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 load is increased by the increasing weight of the unborn child. Many complaints can be resolved by wearing a pelvic band.

If you get a complaint about these complaints during pregnancy, it is important to discuss this with your midwife, doctor and / or physiotherapist. They can best advise you on the measures to reduce your complaints. There is no single way to get rid of your symptoms at once. A physiotherapist can give muscle strengthening exercises and can give posture and movement advice. In addition, a good supporting pelvic girdle or pelvic strap can be worn.
Different types of pelvic bands and pelvic braces are available. Some only support the pelvis, others also the back. Depending on the nature and location of your complaints, you can opt for only a pelvic support band. Or a larger variant 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. By applying circular pressure to the pelvis, the muscles, tendons and bands around the SI joint are relieved. This will reduce the pain stimuli and you will experience fewer pain complaints.
There are two very clear opinions on this with, in some cases, quite strong supporters and opponents. As is so often the case with these kinds 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 physiotherapist (and exercises) is the best treatment method. Wearing a pelvic band at times when a lot of standing has to be done reduces the pain complaints. The physiotherapist's guidance and exercises ensure that the muscles do not weaken.
Unfortunately, there are few exercises during pregnancy that can solve the pain complaints. Muscle-strengthening exercises can possibly in combination with a pelvic band ensure that the symptoms do not worsen or at least worsen. It is important to find a good balance between rest and activity. When the pain is really severe, taking a side position with a thick pillow between the legs is often best.
A well-fitting pelvic band is important to provide sufficient support. It should not be too narrow to prevent it from 'cutting', but also not so wide that it folds.
