Fort Wayne 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 universal. People around the world suffer with pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, a great deal of which is spine-centered. Fortunately, Fort Wayne chiropractic care is locally accessible to help contain as well as alleviate spine-related pain.


Data from a worldwide study that monitored spine pain (neck pain and low back pain) sufferers from 1990 to 2019 found 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 get older, 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 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” 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 including death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is predicted to continue its growth. From 2020 to 2050, it is predicted to rise 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 years of age for both men and women.

Studies like these motivate us to keep up with spine research to help you, our Fort Wayne chiropractic patient, in the best possible way.


Back pain and neck pain are definitely two of our most typical painful spinal conditions at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic…and standing is a daily necessity! 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 reaction as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We encourage thinking about good posture which can beneficially influence experiencinggood posture which includes standing up straight.


And sitting is another daily activity that we all do often without any thought (until pain forces us think about it constantly!). In a recent study, researchers reported that unsupported sitting increased 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 degrees and higher for standing than sitting when the angles were more than 20degrees. Knowing these types of spinal responses are important in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major problem.
