Colorado Springs BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Colorado Springs back pain
are welcomed at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt
with back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid
bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a role. In a new study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
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 increases the risk of developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s proposed
that it’s because of 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 affect the stability of the spine and
likely contribute to the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gently treats and alleviates
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR utilizes chiropractic treatment
via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve
pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant and
later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its effects.
Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful
spine level. One case report shared that 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 success
of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
