Tonawanda Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain causes us to be a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is completely logical and logically universal. People globally experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Luckily, Tonawanda chiropractic care is locally accessible to help contain as well as ease spine-related pain.


Data from an international study that tracked 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 rose significantly. Worldwide, neck pain and low back pain were recorded as burdening public health significantly, particularly as people get older, being most problematic in middle age and older. Data also pointed out that these two conditions were more frequent in women and middle-aged groups and more common in higher socioeconomic indexed countries. (1) Not counting low back pain, neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the same Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 reported that “other musculoskeletal disorders” grew by 123.4% from 221 million to 494 million people from 1990 to 2019. With over 150 different conditions impacting 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 predicted to keep growing. From 2020 to 2050, it is expected 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 years of age for both men and women.

Studies like these motivate us to keep up with spine research to assist you, our Tonawanda chiropractic patient, best.


Back pain and neck pain are certainly two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation…and standing is a daily requisite! Everyone’s spine is a little different. How we each stand is a little 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 reaction 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.


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