Acupuncture as an adjunct to standard treatment for pelvic girdle pain in pregnant women: randomised double-blinded controlled trial comparing acupuncture with non-penetrating sham acupuncture.
CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture had no significant effect on pain or on the degree of sick leave compared with non-penetrating sham acupuncture. There was some improvement in performing daily activities according to DRI. The data imply that needle penetration contributes to a limited extent to the previously reported beneficial effects of acupuncture.

Self-administered tests as a screening procedure for pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain.
Our results indicate that pregnant women can perform a screening by provocation of posterior pelvic pain by self-tests with the new P4 self-test and the Bridging test. Palpation of the symphysis is painful and should only be used as a complement to history taking, pain drawing and pulling a MAT-test.

Life's pregnant pause of pain: Pregnant women's experiences of pelvic girdle pain related to daily life: A Swedish interview study.
Results: Five main categories emerged; Pelvic girdle pain affects the ability to cope with everyday life; Coping with motherhood; Relationships between partners often reached th breaking point; Questioning one´s identity as defined by profession and work and; Lessons learned from living with PGP. The categories illustrate how women’s everyday lives were interrupted. Their ability to meet their own and others´ expectations put a strain on their lives causing disappointment, sadness, and frustration. It made them question and doubt their roles and identities as mothers, partners and professionals, and kept them from looking forward to future pregnancies, in the absence of effective treatment for PGP. Knowledge gained was that women with PGP should seek help immediately, listen to their bodies and acknowledge their limitations.
Conclusion PGP severely affects pregnant women’s everyday lives. There appears to be a lack of knowledge and awareness in general, as well as among caregivers and employers of PGP that needs to be highlighted and rectified. There is also a great need to learn how to support those suffering from it. Appropriate support during this important and rare phase in a woman’s life is highly warranted.

Effects of craniosacral therapy as adjunct to standard treatment for pelvic girdle pain in pregnant women: A multicentre, single blind, randomised controlled trial
Conclusions. Lower morning pain intensity and lesser deteriorated function was seen after craniosacral therapy in conjunction with standard treatment compared to standard treatment alone, but no effects regarding evening pain and sick-leave. Treatment effects were small and clinically questionable and conclusions should be drawn carefully. Further studies are warranted before reccomending craniosacral therapy for pelvic girdle pain.
