Treatment of symphysitis after childbirth
Everyone knows that labor is a complex process, which, in addition to the physiological moments common to all women, has a number of nuances that depend on the individual characteristics of the woman and the current of the genera themselves. It is from these nuances that the absence or presence of postpartum complications depends. A fairly common complication in obstetric practice is symphysitis, an inflammatory process in the lump joint or pubic symphysis (this is how the anatomical conjunction of the pubic bones is scientifically called). Since with symphysitis it is necessary to consult a doctor in a timely manner and to comply with bed rest, it is important to know the causes and symptoms of this condition.
Normally, the pubic symphysis (a fluid-free slit-like cavity surrounded by a fibrous-cartilaginous disc) is a semi-mobile compound, the size of which reaches 1 cm.
Located in the joint of the joint of the pubic bones, the symphysis is a shock absorber, which allows to soften the pubic bone that occurs during movement, jolting and lifting of weights to a physical load on the hyaline cartilage covered with hyaline cartilage.
In addition, the symphysis, strengthened in the upper and lower part of the pubic articulation by two strong ligaments, limits the displacement of the bones, not allowing them to go beyond certain limits.
During pregnancy, under the influence of female sex hormones and produced by the placenta and ovaries relaxin increases the mobility of the pelvic joints, and the weakened ligaments and symphysis become softer. As a result, the pubic bone diverges to a certain extent – so the body prepares to move the child through the birth canal. In this regard, pregnancy in half of women present minor pain in the pubic region.
