Pflugerville BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Pflugerville back pain
are welcomed at Pflugerville Wellness Center. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant had
a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is an
increased risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid
bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a role. In a new report, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
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 developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It is suggested
that it’s because of low back pain and reduced
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the
spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that
weak abdominal muscles influence 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center gently treats and relieves
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Pflugerville
Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
Pflugerville Wellness Center 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

and went on to deliver the baby just

of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Pflugerville Wellness Center understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
