sacroilliac joint syndrome
I wonder can anyone shed some light-
When a woman is pregnant , her body releases a hormone, relaxin, in order that muscular tissue allows movement of the bones especially the pelvis to help accomodate the birth proccess. Is there a link post partum or rather is there any chance that post partum this or a simular hormone is released before each subsequent period/ menstruation which could aggrevate this condition? I am an Aromatherapist and I am finding this complaint frequently in women aged between 30 and 40yo who have also bore children.
Thank you for reading
