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

Women with pregnancy-related McHenry back pain are welcomed at Spengel Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant had a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose 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 acquiring degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is supposed that it is because of low back pain and reduced abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Spengel Chiropractic gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our McHenry chiropractic patients!

(6) Spengel Chiropractic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
