Sitka BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Sitka back pain
are welcomed at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt
with back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent study, the prevalence for 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 increases the risk of acquiring
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s supposed
that it is because of 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 influence the stability of the spine and
likely contribute to the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Sitka
