Hip & Groin - Osteitis Pubis

Osteoitis pubis affects the area at the front of the pelvis known as the pubic symphysis. Only a limited amount of movement can occur at this joint, as it is a cartilaginous joint that has tightly bound by strong ligaments.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Pain in the front of the pelvis following activity
  • Pain when palpating the pubic symphysis

This condition can be very resistant to treatment and can last from 6 months to 2 years. Relative rest is often the treatment of choice, also to address any mal-alignments that may cause increased pressure on the structures.
