Groton BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Groton back pain
are welcomed at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant experienced
a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis because of the fast
bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the incidence
of 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 acquiring
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It is 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 known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Groton
