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

Women with pregnancy-related Lynchburg back pain are welcomed at Palmer Chiropractic Center. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant had an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a new study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis increased 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 ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s proposed that it is because of low back pain and diminished 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 promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common in women. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Lynchburg chiropractic patients!
