How Serola Sacroiliac Belt Can Relieve Back and Hip Pain During Pregnancy
The importance of using the Serola Sacroiliac Belt during and, especially, after pregnancy cannot be overemphasized. During pregnancy, the ligaments, under hormonal influences, become lax and stretch to allow the pelvis to spread for delivery. It is important to hold the sacroiliac and pubic joints firmly together after delivery in order to assist the ligaments in shortening and realigning the pelvis properly. If you are pregnant and in need of relief from pelvic pain, the Serola Sacroiliac Belt will help.
Historically, women in many countries wrapped their pelvis with cloth after pregnancy to help alleviate pain after childbirth.
“After childbirth, 147 patients used a pelvic belt. Of these patients 10% reported more pain, 23% no effect, & 67% a positive effect.” J.M.A. Mens, et al 1992 “To remain stable, the SIJ utilizes a self-bracing mechanism consisting of the ligaments and muscles, as described by Vleeming, et al. This biomechanical model endorses the benefit of a sacroiliac belt for treatment of peripartum pain.” Snijders CJ 1992
“The influence of physical activities on pelvic pain and the relief with the use of a pelvic belt in about 60% of the patients implicates the locomotor system as a cause of pelvic pain, and not an inner organ such as the uterus.” Use of a pelvic belt appears to be useful in treating peripartum pelvic pain. Snijders, et al 1992
