By the end of 2019, the U.S. is projected to have nearly 6 million spine diseases.
Spine diseases include a wide range of disorders ranging from chronic pain to spasticity, and they affect an estimated 2.2 million Americans and are the leading cause of disability in the U, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports.
These diseases are caused by the breakdown of healthy tissue in the spine, which can lead to pain and inflammation.
The number of spine diseases has risen steadily over the past decade, according to a new report by the American College of Radiology.
It also shows that there are growing signs that spines may be becoming more vulnerable to other health problems, such as infections and chronic conditions, as a result of the aging of the population.
In the report, published in the Annals of Surgery, the American Academy of Neurology and American College and Preventive Medicine, the research group noted that the number of spinal disease cases has risen dramatically in recent years, and that it is expected to increase in the future.
“The number and rate of spine disease cases are on the rise, and this is a critical public health issue,” said John P. Sacco, MD, an associate professor of neurology at Columbia University and the study’s senior author.
“We know that more people with chronic diseases have spine disease, and the more that we see the risk, the more urgent it is to reduce these risks.”
The researchers estimate that between 5 and 20 million Americans will develop one or more spine diseases in the next 10 years.
The number of patients in the United States with spine diseases will more than double from now through 2025, the study says.
Among the most common spine diseases is degenerative disc disease, which affects about 1.8 million Americans.
It is also the most prevalent cause of spinal stenosis, a condition in which abnormal cartilage and connective tissue in your spine can become damaged and damaged by the stress of running.
In addition, many patients develop other spine diseases, including chronic spinal muscular atrophy, a disease in which there is weakness in the muscles of your spine and muscles, and spinal stenotic syndrome, a disorder in which a small area of your spinal canal becomes paralyzed and you cannot move.
People with spastic or degenerative spine diseases have many of the same problems as those with other spine disorders, such a chronic pain, pain that is not controlled with medications, and inflammation of their spinal cords, said Dr. Jody J. Stansbury, a professor of radiology at Johns Hopkins University and a member of the study team.
Dr. Stinsbury said the prevalence of spinal diseases is increasing across the country and in many parts of the world.
Many studies have linked increased rates of spinal problems with aging, and in the past two decades, the number and severity of the diseases has increased.
However, the rate of disease is still lower than in the late 1990s, when more than 30,000 people died of spine disorders.
Dr. Saucier said the current trend toward an aging population will continue, but that the overall increase in spine diseases might be offset by more patients getting treatment and improved prevention strategies.
“We are going to see a trend of increasing prevalence,” he said.
According to the report’s authors, the current rate of spines disease cases in the US is comparable to rates seen during the late 1940s, the early 1950s, and earlier.
Most of the new cases are in people aged 65 and older, and about 20 percent are diagnosed with chronic or spastic spine disorders in children and adolescents.
The authors note that it could take 10 to 15 years for the overall number of cases to decrease, although the number is likely to increase over time.
Although the report is based on a survey of more than 2,000 radiologists, it is not necessarily representative of the overall population.
While it is a good baseline to look at, it does not include patients who have not been diagnosed or are not in the survey.
Dr Stansburys research team is working to improve the accuracy of the numbers and the quality of the data, the report said.
