Brooks BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Brooks back pain
are welcomed at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a role. 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 chances. Why? It’s suggested
that it is because of low back pain and reduced
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 contribute to the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Brooks
Brooks CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 consequences.
Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a sore
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 just
fine. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness
of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
