Williamson BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Williamson back pain
are welcomed at Apple Country Chiropractic. 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 throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid
bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
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 increases the risk of developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s suggested
that it is due to low back pain and diminished
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the
spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that
weak abdominal muscles affect the stability of the spine and
likely play a part in the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic gently treats and relieves
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Williamson

degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Apple Country Chiropractic knows
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
