Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain makes us a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is entirely logical and logically global. People around the globe suffer with pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Fortunately, Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care is locally accessible to help manage as well as ease spine-related pain.

GLOBAL IMPACT OF SPINE AND MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CONDITIONS

Data from an international study that monitored spine pain (neck pain and low back pain) patients from 1990 to 2019 found that the “years lived with disabilities,” incidence, and prevalence of both spine issues increased significantly. Globally, neck pain and low back pain were noted to burden public health significantly, especially as people age, being most problematic in middle age and older. 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) Not including low back pain, neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the same Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 stated 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 including death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is estimated to keep growing. From 2020 to 2050, it is estimated to rise by 115% to 1060 million cases. More women are impacted by 47.4% than men. The prevalence of these disorders peaked between 65 and 69 years of age for both men and women. (2) We at Spinal Care Clinic take care of all types of spine related musculoskeletal disorders in addition to neck and back pain. Studies like these motivate us to keep up with spine research to help you, our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patient, best.

UNDERSTANDING STANDING AND BACK PAIN

Neck pain and back pain are certainly two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at Spinal Care Clinic…and standing is a daily requisite! Everyone’s spine is a little different. How we each stand is a bit different…and that matters! A new study found that bigger variations in lumbar lordosis (spinal curvature) like upright standing posture with a bit more extension or more noticeable curve like kyphosis may well affect musculoskeletal response as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We encourage thinking about good posture which can positively affect experiencinggood posture which includes 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 makes us think about it constantly!). In a recent study, researchers found that unsupported sitting intensified intradiscal pressure by about 30% in comparison to upright standing. Intradiscal pressures were greater 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 about spinal responses like these are important in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major concern.
