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

Women with pregnancy-related Malverne back pain are welcomed at Malverne Health & Wellness. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain prior to pregnancy had a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is an increased risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a new report, the incidence of 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 ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It’s supposed that it is due to low back pain and decreased abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses 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) Malverne Health & Wellness gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Malverne chiropractic patients!

(5) Another paper reported on the success of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Malverne Health & Wellness knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
