Richmond BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Richmond back pain
are welcomed at Johnson Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt
with back pain before getting pregnant experienced
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, 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 increases the risk of developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It is supposed
that it’s due to low back pain and decreased
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 play a part in the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Johnson Chiropractic gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Richmond
Richmond CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
Johnson Chiropractic offers chiropractic treatment
via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease
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 sore
spine level. One case report shared that a woman with
sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits
and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby just
fine. (5) Another paper reported on the success
of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Johnson Chiropractic understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
