New Roads Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain makes us a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is perfectly logical and logically universal. People around the globe suffer with pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, a great deal of which is spine-centered. Luckily, New Roads chiropractic care is locally available to help contain as well as ease spine-related pain.


Data from an international study that followed 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 rose significantly. Worldwide, neck pain and low back pain were observed to burden public health significantly, particularly as people age, 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 including low back pain, neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the same Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 stated 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 continue its growth. From 2020 to 2050, it is expected 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 old for both men and women.

Studies like these inspire us to stay current with spine research to assist you, our New Roads chiropractic patient, in the best possible way.


Neck pain and back pain are certainly two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at New Roads Chiropractic Center…and standing is a daily necessity! Everyone’s spine is a bit 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 in a little more extension or more prominent curve like kyphosis may well have a bearing musculoskeletal reaction as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We encourage thinking about good posture which can positively affect experiencinggood posture including standing up straight.


And sitting is another activity of daily living that we all do often without a second thought (until pain makes us think about it all the time!). In a recent study, researchers found 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 degrees and higher for standing than sitting when the angles were more than 20°. Knowing these types of spinal responses are vital in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a big problem.
