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

Women with pregnancy-related Easley back pain are welcomed at Young Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy had an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is an increased risk of osteoporosis because of the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. 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 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 increases the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It’s supposed that it is due to 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 affect the stability of the spine and likely contribute to the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Young Chiropractic gently treats and alleviates pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Easley chiropractic patients!


Young Chiropractic offers 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 described how a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver the baby normally. (5) Another paper reported on the success of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Young Chiropractic knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
