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

Women with pregnancy-related Augusta back pain are welcomed at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain prior to pregnancy had an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a part. In a new report, the incidence of 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 increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It is suggested that it is 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 known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Augusta chiropractic patients!


Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 effects. 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 effectiveness of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
