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 chiropractic patients!
