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

Women with pregnancy-related Nashua back pain are welcomed at Moriarty Chiropractic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain before getting pregnant experienced an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women in general there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the rapid bone loss attributed 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%. 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 increases the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It’s proposed that it’s because of low back pain and reduced 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 influence the stability of the spine and likely promote the condition known as degenerative spondylolisthesis. This condition is more usual in women. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic gently treats and eases pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Nashua chiropractic patients!


Moriarty Chiropractic utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pregnancy-related back pain in women while pregnant 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 discovered 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 alleviating pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Moriarty Chiropractic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
