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

Women with pregnancy-related Eugene back pain are welcomed at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant experienced a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a recent 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 ups the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It’s suggested that it is because of 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 promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Eugene chiropractic patients!


Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pregnancy-related back pain in women during pregnancy and later in life should they develop back pain related to pregnancy and all its effects. Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful spine level. One case report shared that a woman with sciatica during pregnancy discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver the baby normally. (5) Another paper reported on the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
