Pubic Bone Pain Can Be Helped With Belting and Alignment Techniques

By Isa Herrera, MSPT

Correct Your Patient or Client’s Pubic Separation with These Great Techniques

I have treated so many patients with this technique and I know that it is effective. It will help you lay a foundation as well to broaden your authority in the community, and truly help solve some this very painful condition that affects so many pregnant women.

Everything counts, but with pregnant and post-partum women we need to pay close attention to the bones. The bones not only house the pelvic floor muscles and the organs, but also the baby. The pelvic bones play a big part instability and when they are aligned women have less pelvic girdle pain and have an easier time in labor.

The pubic bone is extremely important because it houses the PC (pubococcygeus muscle), the bladder and the uterus. So if this bone is out of alignment, your patient could suffer from pelvic pressure, incontinence, pelvic instability and pelvic pain. Many malpositioned babies can be given more room to move by keeping the pubic bone in alignment.

Aligning this bone must not be underestimated and should be routine care and incorporated into women’s health programs.

Steps For a Shotgun Technique

This self-treatment can be done in sitting like in the video or lying on back with knees hip-width apart.

1.Place hands outside of knees and push knees out into the resistance of your hands. These contractions are isometric (no movement in your legs while your muscles are contracting).
2.Hold x 10 seconds. Repeat 3 time
3.Bring knees closer together and place fisted hand between knees. Contract inner thighs isometrically against the resistance of your fist.
4.Hold x 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times

Remember you may feel or actually hear a slight “pop” as your patient or client performs this technique. This is a good thing because it means the bones are going back into alignment.
