Baton Rouge BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Baton Rouge back pain are welcomed at Spine & Sports Rehab Center. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant had an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent study, 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 ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s proposed that it is due to 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 promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!
