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 play
a role. 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
