Introduction: Pain in the lower back and pelvic pain are one of the most common problems in pregnancy. Appropriate and low-cost diagnostic and validated measurements are required. Therefore, there is a need for a reliable, valid and responsive measurement tool.
Methods: This descriptive study was performed on 135 pregnant women with pelvic pain referring to Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran in 2017. The data collection tool was a participant's personal information form, pelvic pain questionnaire, and brief pain inventory. The results were analyzed by descriptive, correlation and regression tests using SPSS 22. The P-value>0.05 was considered significant.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of age in women were 29.43±5.7 years. The mean pain based on the pelvic belt tool was 37.00±18.00 and the mean pain was 4.25 ± 1.87, respectively. There was a significant positive correlation between the two tools in the sensory evaluation of pregnant women (r=0.818, P=0.001). The pelvic girdle questionnaire, according to R2 = [0.669, BPI=1.109+ 0.085(PGQ)], predicts the amount of pain in the pain relief tool.
Conclusion: Considering the importance of pelvic girdle and a significant correlation between these two questionnaires, it seems useful to use a questionnaire and a tool with a high degree of accuracy which requires shorter time to complete. Therefore, it can be concluded that a brief pain instrument is a useful tool for measuring pain and its effects in the life of patients with pelvic girdle.
