Toronto BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Toronto back pain
are welcomed at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who had back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis because of the fast
bone loss due 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 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 acquiring
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases
twofold a woman’s odds. Why? It is proposed
that it is due to low back pain and diminished
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 promote the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Toronto

of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
