Increased Risks for Largo Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

Pregnancy produces a most wonderful present to a woman, a long-awaited child. Pregnancy sometimes delivers another gift, back pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps brand-new mothers and more veteran mothers alike cope with post Largo pregnancy-related back pain. Largo chiropractic treatment at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is gentle and safe treatment for post-pregnancy-related back pain, allowing mothers of all stages and ages to enjoy their mothering days.

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

Women with pregnancy-related Largo back pain are welcomed at Hollstrom & Associates Inc. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain prior to pregnancy had an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent study, 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 increases the risk of developing 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 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 usual in women. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Largo chiropractic patients!


Hollstrom & Associates Inc utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant 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 discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby just fine. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for relieving pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
