Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Fernandina Beach back pain are welcomed at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain prior to pregnancy experienced an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is an increased risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a recent report, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose with the number of children a woman birthed (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 increases twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s supposed that it’s due to low back pain and diminished abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses 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 usual in women. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients!


Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant and later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its consequences.

(5) Another paper reported on the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
