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 contribute. 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 acquiring 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 chiropractic patients!

(6) Chiropractic Care understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
