Minster Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain causes us to be a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is entirely logical and logically universal. People globally experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Fortunately, Minster chiropractic care is locally available to help manage as well as alleviate spine-related pain.


Data from a worldwide study that tracked 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. Globally, neck pain and low back pain were noted to burden public health significantly, particularly as people age, being most problematic in middle and older aged folks. Data also suggested that these two conditions were more common in women and middle-aged groups and more frequent 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 stated that “other musculoskeletal disorders” increased 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 comprising death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is estimated to keep growing. From 2020 to 2050, it is expected to increase 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. (2) We at Minster Chiropractic Center take care of all types of spine related musculoskeletal disorders in addition to neck and back pain. Studies like these motivate us to stay current with spine research to help you, our Minster chiropractic patient, in the best possible way.


Neck pain and back pain are definitely two of our most common painful spinal conditions at Minster Chiropractic Center…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 greater 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 urge our patients to think about good posture which can beneficially influence havinggood 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 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 higher for sitting than standing when back angles were less than 20° and higher for standing than sitting when the angles were more than 20degrees. Knowing about spinal responses like these are vital in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major problem.
