Musculoskeletal Injuries/Pain

Musculoskeletal injuries interfere with normal movement and cause pain, and may affect any part of the body associated with joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and bone.

They may develop slowly over time as a result of poor postural loading, repetitive strain or overuse, or acutely as a result of trauma or sudden injury.

Musculoskeletal injuries may affect any part of the body:

  • Spine
  • Trunk including ribcage
  • Pelvis
  • Lower limb including hip, knee, ankle and foot
  • Upper limb including shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand

Problems associated with the spine may cause pain to radiate to other areas. Commonly we see:

  • Back pain and radiating leg pain (sciatica)
  • Neck pain and radiating arm pain
  • Neck pain and headaches
  • Thoracic pain and radiating ribcage, chest or breast bone (sternal) pain

All musculoskeletal injuries need thorough assessment to understand the mechanism driving the problem, so that treatment can be specifically targeted and effective.
