Ottawa BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Ottawa back pain
are welcomed at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt
with back pain before getting pregnant experienced
a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid
bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a role. In a new study, the prevalence for 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 increases the risk of developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s supposed
that it is due to low back pain and reduced
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 play a part in the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Ottawa
Ottawa CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider utilizes chiropractic treatment
via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease
pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant and
later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its consequences.
Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful
spine level. One case report described how a woman with
sciatica during pregnancy discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits
and went on to deliver the baby just
fine. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness
of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
