Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain causes us to be a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is entirely logical and logically global. People globally experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, a great deal of which is spine-centered. Luckily, Fort Wayne chiropractic care is locally available to help manage as well as alleviate spine-related pain.

GLOBAL IMPACT OF SPINE AND MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CONDITIONS

Data from a worldwide study that tracked spine pain (neck pain and low back pain) patients from 1990 to 2019 revealed that the “years lived with disabilities,” incidence, and prevalence of both conditions grew significantly. Globally, neck pain and low back pain were recorded as burdening public health significantly, especially as people age, being most problematic in middle and older aged folks. Data also pointed out that these two conditions were more common in women and middle-aged groups and more frequent in higher socioeconomic indexed countries. (1) Beyond low back pain, neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the same Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 conveyed that “other musculoskeletal disorders” increased by 123.4% from 221 million to 494 million people from 1990 to 2019. With over 150 different conditions involving bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the spine under the umbrella of “other musculoskeletal disorders,” health loss comprising death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is expected to keep growing. From 2020 to 2050, it is predicted to increase by 115% to 1060 million cases. More women are affected by 47.4% than men. The prevalence of these disorders topped out between 65 and 69 old for both men and women. (2) We at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc see all sorts of spine related musculoskeletal disorders as well as neck and back pain. Studies like these motivate us to keep up with spine research to assist you, our Fort Wayne chiropractic patient, in the best possible way.

UNDERSTANDING STANDING AND BACK PAIN

Back pain and neck pain are certainly two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc…and standing is a daily requisite! Everyone’s spine is a bit different. How we each stand is a bit different…and that matters! A new study recorded bigger variations in lumbar lordosis (spinal curvature) like upright standing posture with a bit more extension or more noticeable curve like kyphosis may well impact musculoskeletal response as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We urge our patients to think about good posture which can beneficially influence experiencinggood posture including standing up straight.

UNDERSTANDING SITTING AND BACK PAIN

And sitting is another daily activity that we all do often without a second thought (until pain forces us think about it constantly!). In a recent study, researchers wrote that unsupported sitting intensified intradiscal pressure by about 30% in comparison to upright standing. Intradiscal pressures were higher for sitting than standing when back angles were less than 20° and higher for standing than sitting when the angles were greater than 20°. Knowing these types of spinal responses are important in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major problem.
