Vancouver BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Vancouver back pain
are welcomed at Vancouver Spine Care Centre. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt
with back pain prior to pregnancy had
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is an
increased risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new 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 doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It is supposed
that it is because of low back pain and decreased
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the
spine for this condition. (3) One study points out the fact that
weak abdominal muscles affect the stability of the spine and
likely promote the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Vancouver Spine Care Centre gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Vancouver
