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 chiropractic patients!


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 sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver the baby just fine. (5) Another paper reported on the effectiveness 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.
