Brief Summary:
Pelvic girdle pain is frequently experienced in pregnant women and the mechanism of pelvic girdle pain is not known exactly. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of plantar fascia on pelvic girdle pain in pregnant women.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 70 participants
Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Investigation of the Effect of Biomechanical and Viscoelastic Properties of Plantar Fascia on Pelvic Girdle Pain in Pregnant Women
Estimated Study Start Date : November 2, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 1, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 1, 2021

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Group 1: pregnant women with pelvic girdle pain
This group will consist of pregnant women who are in the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy and have pelvic girdle pain.
Other: Evaluation of biomechanics and viscoelastic properties of plantar fascia

The biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of the plantar fascia will be measured in the side lying position.

Measurements will be made with the ankle in neutral position and maximum dorsi flexion position.


Other: Evaluation of navıcular drop
The amount of navicular drop of both feet will be measured

Other: Evaluation of plantar pressure distrubution
The distribution of foot plantar pressure and the amount of change in the center of gravity will be measured in the free standing position.

Group 2:pregnant women without pelvic girdle pain
This group will consist of pregnant women who are in the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy but have not pelvic girdle pain.
Other: Evaluation of biomechanics and viscoelastic properties of plantar fascia

The biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of the plantar fascia will be measured in the side lying position.

Measurements will be made with the ankle in neutral position and maximum dorsi flexion position.


Other: Evaluation of navıcular drop
The amount of navicular drop of both feet will be measured

Other: Evaluation of plantar pressure distrubution
The distribution of foot plantar pressure and the amount of change in the center of gravity will be measured in the free standing position.

Group 3: healthy women
This group will consist of healthy women who have not been pregnant.
Other: Evaluation of biomechanics and viscoelastic properties of plantar fascia

The biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of the plantar fascia will be measured in the side lying position.

Measurements will be made with the ankle in neutral position and maximum dorsi flexion position.


Other: Evaluation of navıcular drop
The amount of navicular drop of both feet will be measured

Other: Evaluation of plantar pressure distrubution
The distribution of foot plantar pressure and the amount of change in the center of gravity will be measured in the free standing position.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of plantar fascia [ Time Frame: Baseline Measurements ]
    Measuring of the biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of the plantar fascia (with MyotonPro, Myoton AS, Tallin, Estonia) in the side lying position.

  2. Evaluation of plantar pressure distrubution [ Time Frame: Baseline Measurements ]
    Measuring of plantar pressure distrubution (with Tekscan, Boston, MA, USA) in free standing position


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of navicular drop [ Time Frame: Baseline Measurements ]
    Measuring of the amount of the navicular drop
