Carrolltown BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Carrolltown back pain are welcomed at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy experienced a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a new 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 ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s 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 stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely play a part in the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Carrolltown chiropractic patients!
