Ottawa BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Ottawa back pain
are welcomed at Motion4Life - Dr. Paul Taillefer. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described 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 better risk of osteoporosis due to the fast
bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent study, the incidence
of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
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 increases
twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It’s supposed
that it is due to low back pain and decreased
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 called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Motion4Life - Dr. Paul Taillefer gently treats and alleviates
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Ottawa
