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 rose 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 chiropractic patients!
