Plymouth women suffering from pelvic girdle pain following childbirth invited to trial support shorts

Researchers at the University of Plymouth are looking for 60 women from the local area who have been suffering with pelvic girdle pain for three months or more since childbirth to take part in a new study testing customised pelvic support shorts as an innovative alternative treatment.

The ‘Evaluating the Management of Chronic Pelvic Girdle Pain following pregnancy: A randomised controlled feasibility’ (EMaPP) trial aims to find out the best way to help women who experience persistent pelvic girdle pain following childbirth. The study, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is being supported locally by the NIHR Clinical Research Network South West Peninsula (CRN SWP).
