According to the WHO, degenerative-dystrophic diseases in the spinal column occur in 80% of overall population and account for up to 90% of all the chronic diseases cases. Data and methods. To assess prevalence of degenerative-dystrophic diseases in the spinal column among people living in Saint Petersburg, we performed screening tests on 5,797 people (their average age was 56.52 ± 18.39; body mass index was 26.78 ± 15.42 kg/m2; spine length was 443.30 ± 39.85 mm). Men accounted for 25.6% among the examined people (n=1,482); women, for 74.4% (n=4,315). All the participants underwent a complex examination; they were questioned (we applied a specially designed questionnaire made up of 124 questions); their spinal columns (3 sections in them) were x-rayed; we also accomplished computer optical topography with "DIERS Formetric 4D" device (Germany); the last stage was a consultation by a neurologist. The prevalence of degenerative-dystrophic diseases in the spinal column amounts to 71...
