Pensacola BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Pensacola back pain are welcomed at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain prior to pregnancy 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 reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, 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 increases the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It’s proposed that it is because of low back pain and reduced abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study points out the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Pensacola chiropractic patients!


Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pregnancy-related back pain in women during pregnancy and later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its consequences.

(5) Another paper described the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
