Fort Wayne BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related Fort Wayne back pain are welcomed at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain before getting pregnant had a higher risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the rapid bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new report, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, 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 increases the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is supposed that it’s due to 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 influence the stability of the spine and likely contribute to the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients!


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offers 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 sore spine level. One case report shared that a woman with sciatica during pregnancy discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver the baby normally. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
