Sandy Springs BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Sandy Springs back pain
are welcomed at Cross Chiropractic Center. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant had
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid
bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. 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 increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s supposed
that it’s due to low back pain and decreased
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 called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center gently treats and alleviates
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Sandy Springs
Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
Cross Chiropractic Center offers chiropractic treatment
via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve
pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant 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) Cross Chiropractic Center understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
