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 chiropractic patients!
