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
Eugene CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF PREGNANCY-RELATED
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.
