Increased Risks for Manahawkin Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

Pregnancy produces a very wonderful gift to a woman, an often longed for child. Pregnancy occasionally delivers another gift, back pain.

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

Women with pregnancy-related Manahawkin back pain are welcomed at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who experienced back pain before getting pregnant had an increased risk of pain throughout pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a bigger risk of osteoporosis due to the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen reduction. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a new study, the incidence of osteoporosis was 35.24%. Particularly, the risk for post-menopausal osteoporosis rose 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 ups the risk of acquiring degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy doubles a woman’s chances. Why? It is proposed that it is 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 affect the stability of the spine and likely contribute to the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Manahawkin chiropractic patients!


Manahawkin 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 consequences. Cox® Technic is gentle, safe and specific treatment to a sore spine level. One case report described how a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found relief of her pain in 8 visits and went on to deliver 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more relieving.
