McHenry BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related McHenry back pain
are welcomed at OrthoIllinois 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 play
a role. 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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our McHenry

of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic understands
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
