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
Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
Palmer Chiropractic Center utilizes chiropractic treatment
via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve
pregnancy-related back pain in women during pregnancy and
later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its effects.
Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful
spine level. One case report shared that a woman with
sciatica during pregnancy discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits
and went on to deliver the baby just
fine. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness
of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Palmer Chiropractic Center understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
