Increased Risks for Montreal Mothers to Spinal Issues Later in Life

Montreal chiropractic treatment at Dr. Hoang's 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.

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

Women with pregnancy-related Montreal back pain are welcomed at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. 76% of pregnant women in a recent study reported pregnancy-related back pain. Women who dealt with back pain prior to pregnancy experienced an increased risk of pain during pregnancy. (1) For post-menopausal women on the whole there is a better risk of osteoporosis because of the fast bone loss attributed to estrogen depletion. Factors like obesity, age at menarche, breastfeeding, and parity also contribute. In a recent report, the prevalence for 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 increases the risk of developing degenerative spondylolisthesis by 22%. A hysterectomy increases twofold a woman’s chances. Why? It’s supposed 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic gently treats and relieves pain of spondylolisthesis much to the liking of our Montreal chiropractic patients!


Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic utilizes chiropractic treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve 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 painful spine level. One case report described how a woman with sciatica during pregnancy found 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 reducing pain due to stable degenerative spondylolisthesis in 75% of patients. (6) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands degenerative spondylolisthesis to be a condition that gentle care is more effective.
