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 play a role. 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 chiropractic patients!
