Watertown BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Watertown back pain
are welcomed at Watertown Wellness Center. 76% of pregnant women in a new
study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain prior to pregnancy experienced
a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1)
For post-menopausal women in general there is an
increased risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid
bone loss due to estrogen depletion. Issues
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Specifically,
the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose 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 ups the risk of developing
degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s supposed
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 affect the stability of the spine and
likely promote the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual
in women. (4) Watertown Wellness Center gently treats and eases
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Watertown

of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable
degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Watertown Wellness Center knows
degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
