St. Francisville BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related St. Francisville back pain are welcomed at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain prior to pregnancy had an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is an increased risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis increased with the number of children a woman birthed (higher at more than 4 children) and with the older age (highest at over 35 years) of the mother at the last childbirth. (2) Each full-term pregnancy ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is supposed that it’s due to low back pain and reduced abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the spine for this condition. (3) One study points out the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely play a part in the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common in women. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our St. Francisville chiropractic patients!
