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

Women with pregnancy-related Minster back pain are welcomed at Minster Chiropractic Center. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described 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 attributed to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a new 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 developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It’s proposed that it is because of low back pain and reduced abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up 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 common in women. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Minster chiropractic patients!


Minster Chiropractic Center utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve 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 painful spine level. One case report described how a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby just fine. (5) Another paper reported on the success of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Minster Chiropractic Center knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
