Because women are built to nn- dwgo childbirth, tlic structure of He lower part of the spine and of lie pelvis is adapted to relaxation, therefore women are more likely o suffer with x disorganization of the bones and the ligaments than e men. Moreover, as the woman approaches the end of the period vnen it is ]x)5sible lor her to give birth (here comes a tendency for t're.iter fixation in the spine and in the pelvis. A competent orthopedic surgeon is able to control the excessive relaxation by the use of light braces and especially built consols.
