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 chiropractic patients!
