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

Women with pregnancy-related Manchester back pain are welcomed at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant experienced an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically, 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 developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It is proposed that it is because of low back pain and diminished 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 contribute to the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common in women. (4) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries gently treats and alleviates pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Manchester chiropractic patients!
