FACTS & MYTHS: THE PELVIS

 

FACT: There are three joints that make up the pelvis, two sacroiliac joints at the back and the pubic symphysis at the front. 

 

FACT: Approximately 65% of body weight is transmitted through the sacrum and into the lower back when standing.

 

FACT: The pelvis has a similar pain pattern as the lower back. It is estimated that the sacroiliac joint is causing pain in 20-25% of people diagnosed with non-specific lower back pain.

 

MYTH: The pelvis is a joint that can easily become ‘unstable’ or ‘out of alignment’

 

MYTH: I’m pregnant so I will just have to ‘put up’ with my pelvic pain. It’s part of being pregnant.
