Increased Risks for Murfreesboro Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment at Most Chiropractic Clinic is gentle and safe treatment for post-pregnancy-related back pain, allowing mothers of all stages and ages to enjoy their mothering days.

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

Women with pregnancy-related Murfreesboro back pain are welcomed at Most Chiropractic Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain prior to pregnancy experienced an increased 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 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 had (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 chances. Why? It is supposed that it is because of 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 play a part in the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients!


Most Chiropractic Clinic 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 discovered relief of her pain in 8 visits and continued the pregnancy and delivered the baby normally. (5) Another paper described the effectiveness of Cox® Technic for reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Most Chiropractic Clinic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
