Baton Rouge BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY:
Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Women with pregnancy-related Baton Rouge back pain
are welcomed at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. 76% of pregnant women in a recent
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 depletion. Factors
like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play
a part. 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 chances. Why? It’s proposed
that it’s due to low back pain and decreased
abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that sets up the
spine for this condition. (3) One study points out the fact that
weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and
likely play a part in the condition known
as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common
in women. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation gently treats and relieves
pain of spondylolisthesis much to the pleasure of our Baton Rouge
