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
Oxford CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
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.
