Why Women Are at Greater Risk for Low Back Pain

A 2016 study found that women are more at risk of chronic low back pain than men. This is why it’s not surprising why more female patients seek a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City for low back pain relief. But, what exactly makes women more vulnerable? Studies enumerate at least three factors: female hormone fluctuation, heightened sensitivity to pain, and post-partum back problems. Let’s take a closer look at them below.


Female hormone fluctuation

One of the most well-known female sex hormones, estrogen plays a pivotal role in developing painful muscle problems. A study notes that estrogen deficiency can increase a woman’s susceptibility to degenerative musculoskeletal diseases such as: 

  • Sarcopenia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sarcobesity
  • Osteoporosis

Heightened sensitivity of pain receptors

Some studies claim that pain affects men and women differently. This may be because women have a higher nerve tissue density than males. Additionally, women are more self-aware of their feelings and the problems they experience.

Post-partum back pain

Some women seeking a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City developed lower back pain after childbirth. Doctors refer to this condition as post-partum back pain. According to studies, many things can trigger post-partum back problems, including: 

  • Pelvic bone trauma
  • Joint instability and loss of muscle tone
  • Epidural complications 
  • Lactation-associated osteoporosis


Seek a NUCCA Chiropractor in Redwood City for Lower Back Pain Relief

Back pain can cause serious problems, especially when you lead a busy life. Do you happen to have any of the risk factors we listed above? If yes, it might help to manage them as early as possible. Furthermore, we suggest working on postural problems that may eventually aggravate or trigger low back pain. You can do that by working with our NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City. 

NUCCA chiropractic adjustments can help you get rid of back pain-causing problems like nerve pinching and over sensitization of the nervous system. It only takes a few hours to figure out how far your neck bones have shifted and how long you might need to receive spinal corrections.
