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
