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 common in women. (4) Watertown Wellness Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Watertown chiropractic patients!


Watertown Wellness Center 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 consequences. 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 reported on the effectiveness 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.
