Musculoskeletal medicine is the examination, diagnosis and treatment of non-surgical lesions of the musculoskeletal system (i.e. disorders of joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons; the means by which we move). Musculoskeletal medicine encompasses musculoskeletal and spinal column disorders associated with occupational and sports injuries and age-related dysfunction. The following conditions can be treated by integrative musculoskeletal techniques.

What Are the Causes of Musculoskeletal Pain?

The causes of musculoskeletal pain vary. Muscle tissue can be damaged with the wear and tear of daily activities. Trauma to an area (jerking movements, auto accidents, falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, and direct blows to the muscle) are also known to cause musculoskeletal pain. Other causes can include postural strain, repetitive movements, overuse and prolonged immobilization. Changes in posture or poor body mechanics may bring about spinal alignment problems and muscle shortening, therefore causing other muscles to be misused and become painful. The following are a few of the many treatments available, depending on your symptoms and severity:
