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

Women with pregnancy-related Plymouth back pain are welcomed at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant experienced a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose with the number of children a woman birthed (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 acquiring degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is suggested 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 promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology gently treats and alleviates pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Plymouth chiropractic patients!

(6) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
