Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain causes us to be a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is perfectly logical and logically global. People around the world suffer with pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, a great deal of which is spine-centered. Fortunately, Baton Rouge chiropractic care is locally available to help contain as well as relieve 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 conditions increased significantly. Worldwide, neck pain and low back pain were recorded as burdening public health significantly, especially as people get older, being most problematic in middle age and older. Data also suggested that these two conditions were more common in women and middle-aged groups and more common 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” 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 predicted to increase by 115% to 1060 million cases. More women are affected by 47.4% than men. The prevalence of these disorders peaked between 65 and 69 old for both men and women.

Studies like these inspire us to stay current with spine research to help you, our Baton Rouge chiropractic patient, best.

UNDERSTANDING STANDING AND BACK PAIN

Back pain and neck pain are definitely two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at Spine & Sports Rehab Center…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 greater 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 reaction 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 which includes standing up straight.

UNDERSTANDING SITTING AND BACK PAIN

And sitting is another activity of daily living that we all do often without any thought (until pain forces us think about it all the time!). In a recent study, researchers found that unsupported sitting intensified 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 more than 20°. Knowing about spinal responses like these are critical in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major concern.
