Ashburn BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Ashburn back pain are welcomed at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant had a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, 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 ups the risk of acquiring degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It is proposed that it is due to low back pain and decreased abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Ashburn chiropractic patients!
