West Palm Beach BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related West Palm Beach back pain
are welcomed at Chiropractic Care. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant experienced
a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid
bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a part. In a recent report, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly,
the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose with the number
of children a woman had (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 doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s proposed
that it is due to low back pain and decreased
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 affect the stability of the spine and
likely promote the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Chiropractic Care gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our West Palm Beach
