2013 randomized, multicenter, single blind, controlled trial conducted in Sweden regarding the effects of craniosacral therapy as adjunct therapy to standard treatment for pregnant women with pelvic girdle pain. The trail suggests that “Lower morning pain intensity and less deteriorated function was seen after craniosacral therapy in conjunction with standard treatment compared with standard treatment alone, but no effects regarding evening pain and sick-leave.”
