Subluxation of the pubic bone (partly luxated joint of the pubic bone)
In the pelvic girdle not only the two in the back positioned Ilio-scral joints are found, but also the anterior pubic joint (symphysis). Here the right and the left pubic ramus, as ventral elongation of the wings of ilium, meet.
The statement that the pubic joint ossifies as one grows older and therefore cannot be treated any more, is wrong. A correction of the subluxation of the pubic bone up to a great age is possible and even very necessary.
The joint of the pubic bone subluxates and tilts, as soon as shearing forces occur in the pelvis or at one of the Iliosacral joints.
Shearing forces occur at the pelvis:
- when there is an inclination of the pelvis,
- when one turns in the pelvis and not with the pelvis,
- when you straddle the legs, for example when doing the splits or kneeling, while one knee remains on the floor and the other leg already was put up,
- when the pelvis tilts to and fro, for example when walking on uneven ground (here you should use sticks, to prevent a tilt of the pelvis,) when using a stepper, cross- or eliptic trainer or a trampoline or when wearing shoes with cut off heels, so that the shoe is formed like a banana,
- when balancing on a so-called peziball or on chairs with a movable and not arrestable bearing surface.
