Table 2 Score of pain intensity (graded 0-1-2) provoked on 13 anatomical landmarks of the intra-pelvic side-wall, among women with pregnancy related chronic pelvic pain (CPP) after childbirth and those without low back or pelvic pain (No CPP). The average score of the symmetric landmarks and os coccyx and the average and sum scores of all 13 landmarks are presented as means (s.d.)
