The pubic symphysis is an anatomically hemiarthrotic joint, composed of a fibrocartilaginous interpubic disc sandwiched between thin hyaline cartilages [17], which is consistent with the fibrocartilaginous nature of the subpubic mass.
Cowling and Rangan analyzed a woman with SPD (route of delivery: vaginal, single child of 3.9 kg) who received bed rest and a pelvic girdle as treatment and reported a decrease of the interpubic gap from 5.4 to 4.3 cm after 3 d, and a further decrease of 1.4 cm after 10 d.
employed mobilization and unloading to conservatively treat a woman with SPD (route of delivery: vaginal, single child of 4.8 kg) and reported a significant decrease of the interpubic gap from 5 to 3 and 1 cm within 2 and 3 d, respectively, and the complete resolution of the symptoms 3 mo after labor [16].
Regarding the interpubic gap in women with SPD, we found a wide range of distances among the studies (from 1.1 to 9.5 cm) and disappearance of symptoms despite the persistence of diastasis [1,24].
In these four cases, the diastasis was audible to the patient and the doctor, resulting in a 4.5 cm interpubic gap.
