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

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.
