Increased Risks for Tarrytown Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

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

Women with pregnancy-related Tarrytown back pain are welcomed at Tarrytown Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a new study described pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain before getting pregnant had a higher risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss due to estrogen reduction. Issues like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also play a role. In a new report, the prevalence for osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, 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 doubles a woman’s odds. Why? It is supposed that it is because of low back pain and decreased abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy that establishes the spine for this condition. (3) One study stresses the fact that weak abdominal muscles influence the stability of the spine and likely play a part in the condition called degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Tarrytown chiropractic patients!


Tarrytown Chiropractic offers 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 consequences. Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a painful spine level. One case report shared that a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby normally. (5) Another paper described the success of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Tarrytown Chiropractic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
