What is symphysis pubis dysfunction?

There is a natural increase in the width of the symphysis pubis (pubic bone joint) during pregnancy causing the joint to move excessively. In some cases severe dysfunction may occur resulting in burning sensations and pain specifically in the pubic bone itself.
