Toronto 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 world experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Fortunately, Toronto chiropractic care is locally accessible to help manage 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 revealed that the “years lived with disabilities,” incidence, and prevalence of both conditions increased significantly. Globally, neck pain and low back pain were recorded as burdening 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 frequent in women and middle-aged groups and more frequent 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 involving 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 expected to continue its growth. 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 years of age for both men and women.

Studies like these inspire us to stay current with spine research to assist you, our Toronto chiropractic patient, best.


Back pain and neck pain are certainly two of our most common painful spinal conditions at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre…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 in a little more extension or more prominent curve like kyphosis may well have a bearing musculoskeletal response as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We encourage thinking about good posture which can positively affect experiencinggood 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 wrote 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 greater than 20°. Knowing about spinal responses like these are vital in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a major problem.
