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 throughout 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
Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
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.
Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful
spine level. One case report shared that a woman with
sciatica during pregnancy discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits
and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby normally. (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.
