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 chiropractic patients!

Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful spine level. One case report shared that a woman with sciatica during pregnancy discovered 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.
