Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction

Many women have pain in their hips while pregnant, and are told there is nothing that can be done about it. This is not true.

We're talking more than a simple backache. This is a deep hip pain. Other symptoms include: pain when standing on one leg; difficulty walking after sitting or lying down; pain when rolling over in bed; tenderness in the pubic area; sciatica.
