A pelvic belt is advised in patients with loose pelvic, especially after childbirth. It is a leather belt eight to ten centimeters wide with a padded lining on the inner surface. The belt is worn just below the iliac crest and above the trochanter. The belt should support the overhanging abdomen from underneath and should not compress the abdomen. It has to be worn for six weeks, mainly during the daytime. A pelvic belt is also prescribed for patients with weak abdominal muscles.
