Osteitis pubis is a condition that involves the gradual widening of the pubic symphysis. The pubic symphysis is the location where the pelvis connects in the front. Normally the condition occurs over time during participation in long-term activities such as running and soccer. The presence of a leg length discrepancy could increase the likelihood for a person to develop this condition.
