Vancouver BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Vancouver back pain
are welcomed at Vancouver Disc Centers. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain before getting pregnant experienced
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid
bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the incidence
of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis increased 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 developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It’s proposed
that it is because of low back pain and diminished
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the
spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that
weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and
likely contribute to the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Vancouver

pregnancy-related back pain in women during pregnancy and

and continued the pregnancy and delivered 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) Vancouver Disc Centers knows
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
