Increased Risks for San Jose Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

San Jose chiropractic treatment at Chiropractic Solutions is gentle and safe treatment for post-pregnancy-related back pain, allowing mothers of all stages and ages to enjoy their mothering days.

San Jose BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related San Jose back pain are welcomed at Chiropractic Solutions. 76% of pregnant women in a new study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant experienced a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the prevalence for 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 ups the risk of acquiring degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is proposed that it’s due to low back pain and decreased abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles affect the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Chiropractic Solutions gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our San Jose chiropractic patients!

(6) Chiropractic Solutions knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
