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

Women with pregnancy-related Oxford back pain are welcomed at Satterwhite Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant experienced an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the fast bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a recent study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis increased 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 proposed that it’s due to low back pain and diminished abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the spine for this condition. (3) One study points out the fact that weak abdominal muscles affect the stability of the spine and likely play a part in the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Oxford chiropractic patients!


Satterwhite Chiropractic offers chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pregnancy-related back pain in women during pregnancy and later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its effects. Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful spine level. One case report described how 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 described the success of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Satterwhite Chiropractic knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
