Plainville 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 around the globe experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Luckily, Plainville chiropractic care is locally available to help manage as well as ease spine-related pain.


Data from an international study that tracked spine pain (neck pain and low back pain) sufferers from 1990 to 2019 revealed that the “years lived with disabilities,” incidence, and prevalence of both spine issues grew significantly. Worldwide, neck pain and low back pain were recorded as burdening 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 frequent 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 reported that “other musculoskeletal disorders” rose 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 incorporating death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is estimated to keep growing. 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 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 Plainville chiropractic patient, best.


Neck pain and back pain are certainly two of our most common painful spinal conditions at Layden Chiropractic…and standing is a daily necessity! Everyone’s spine is a little different. How we each stand is a little different…and that matters! A new study found that greater variations in lumbar lordosis (spinal curvature) like upright standing posture in a little more extension or more prominent curvature like kyphosis may well affect musculoskeletal reaction as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We urge our patients to think about good posture which can beneficially affect experiencinggood posture including standing up straight.


And sitting is another daily activity that we all do often without any thought (until pain makes us think about it all the time!). In a recent study, researchers reported 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 20°. Knowing about spinal responses like these are important in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major problem.
