SI Joint Pain and Cycling

My wife has been diagnosed with lax ligaments in her SI joint. The condition is related to a separation of the symphysis pubis that she suffered from during two pregnancies. The symphysis pretty much healed post partum but then the SI joint pain started. Our youngest child is 2 and a half now. The doctors think that any pregnancy related laxity should be long gone and this is probably something she has to live with. After several months of PT, which focused primarily on abdominal strengthening (pilates type exercises) to try to stabilize the loose SI joints, she was mostly pain free.

I thought cycling would continue to help her with her core strength. Unfortunately after a 40 minute ride today she is in a lot of pain. I watched her while she was riding and her hips looked even and were not rocking. Her cadence was smooth. She said her SI joint was a little 'achey' but not painful during the ride.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
