Musculoskeletal Disorders FAQs
What is a musculoskeletal disorder?
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) are problems with the human body which can cause pain. The term ‘musculoskeletal’ relates to the physical structures of the body, such as bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. If one of these structures doesn’t function or move as it is designed to, for any reason, then people develop pain or other related symptoms.
What is the biggest cause of musculoskeletal disorders?
Perhaps, unexpectedly, the biggest causes of MSD’s include poor lifestyle habits such as poor diet, lack of exercise and overindulgence in such things as smoking and drinking alcohol, poor work habits such as poor work/life balance or failing to follow working guidelines in terms of manual handling or sedentary behaviour, lack of rest and recovery and trauma and stress.
What treats musculoskeletal disorders?
There are lots of different ways to treat an MSD, depending on a variety of factors, which would include age and lifestyle. Of course, everyone’s body is different and the experience of an MSK condition is unique to the individual. The role of Physiotherapists and MSK Experts is to undertake consultation and discuss the situation with you and so that we can support the best treatment and recovery method that is best for each individual.
