Effects of Pelvic Belt and Kinesio Tape on Pain and Functional Mobility in Pregnancy-Related Pelvic Girdle Pain

2020-02-16 17:40:47 | BioPortfolio


This study investigates the effects of pelvic belt (PB) and kinesio taping (KT) applications on pain and functional mobility in pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP), in comparison with the control group that received only pain neuroscience education and ergonomic training.


Although there is strong evidence in the literature that pelvic support belts reduce pain in pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain, no study investigating its effect on functional mobility with performance-based measurement methods or investigating its effectiveness on kinesiophobia has been found. Studies investigating the efficacy of KT in pregnant women with PGP are few and many are methodologically weak studies, most of which do not contain randomization and control groups. Also, no study has been found in the literature, which compares the effectiveness of PB and KT in pregnant women with PGP. Therefore, the primary aim of this study is to examine the effects of PB and KT on pain and functional mobility in pregnant women with PGP in comparison with the control group, which is only given pain neuroscience education and ergonomic training. The secondary aims are to investigate the effects of these applications on kinesiophobia, activity limitation and sleep quality; and to compare the groups in regard to patient compliance and treatment satisfaction levels of the groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Discomfort associated with the bones that make up the pelvic girdle. It occurs frequently during pregnancy.

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.

Bones that constitute each half of the pelvic girdle in VERTEBRATES, formed by fusion of the ILIUM; ISCHIUM; and PUBIC BONE.

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).

The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
