Increased Risks for New Roads Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

New Roads chiropractic treatment at New Roads Chiropractic Center is gentle and safe treatment for post-pregnancy-related back pain, allowing mothers of all stages and ages to relish their mothering days.

New Roads BACK PAIN ISSUES RELATED TO PREGNANCY: Osteoporosis & Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Women with pregnancy-related New Roads back pain are welcomed at New Roads Chiropractic Center. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain before getting pregnant experienced a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is an increased risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a recent study, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose 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 suggested that it’s because of low back pain and diminished abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles affect the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more common in women. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our New Roads chiropractic patients!


New Roads Chiropractic Center utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease 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 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 just fine. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) New Roads Chiropractic Center knows degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
