Preston BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Preston back pain
are welcomed at Chiropractic Associates. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy had
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a role. In a recent study, the incidence
of 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 acquiring
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It is supposed
that it is because of low back pain and decreased
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the
spine for this condition. (3) One study points out 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 usual
in women. (4) Chiropractic Associates gently treats and relieves
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Preston
