West Des Moines BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related West Des Moines back pain
are welcomed at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
an increased risk of pain during 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 part. 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 due to low back pain and diminished
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 called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa gently treats and relieves
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our West Des Moines
