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 play a role. 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 chiropractic patients!
