West Palm Beach BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related West Palm Beach back pain are welcomed at Moses Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain prior to pregnancy experienced a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a recent report, 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 is suggested 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 play a part in the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Moses Chiropractic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients!


Moses Chiropractic utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve 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 sore spine level. One case report shared that a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver the baby just fine. (5) Another paper described the success of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Moses Chiropractic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
