Understanding musculoskeletal pain and effective treatment options

  1. 1. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 Understanding Musculoskeletal Pain and Effective Treatment Options Muscle tissues can be damaged in many ways during routine activities. Pain management programs provided at reliable healthcare centers can reduce the pain and improve the quality of your life. Muscle pain and related aches, whether it’s from a sports injury or a minor accident can happen to any one. They usually affect the support structures including the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that allow you to move about in daily life. Muscular pain is most often caused by an injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves. This can be the result of jerking movements, car accidents, falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, and direct trauma to the muscle. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) final report evaluating musculoskeletal disorders in a poultry processing plant found that 57% of the participants reported at least one musculoskeletal symptom at both baseline and follow-up evaluations. Low back pain is the most common type of musculoskeletal pain. Other common disorders include tendinitis, fibromyalgia, gout, osteoarthritis and stress fractures. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521
  2. 2. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 The pain is often caused by an injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves from falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, or even trauma. Other causes of pain include postural strain, repetitive movements, overuse, prolonged immobilization, changes in posture or poor body mechanics. The pain associated with the condition can be chronic or acute. Musculoskeletal disorders can hamper everyday tasks, such as walking. Varying from person to person, the common symptoms are: • Recurrent pain • Fatigue • Sleep disturbances • Stiff, painful joints • Swelling • Dull aches Diagnosing Musculoskeletal Disorders Early diagnosis is important to identify the origin of pain and ease the symptoms while potentially reducing further bodily damage. A thorough physical examination will be performed in the initial stage. Pain that stays in one area is may be due to mild problems associated with the muscles, tendons and ligaments. If bone fractures are suspected, it can be diagnosed with modalities such as musculoskeletal MRI and X-rays. Blood tests may be done to confirm rheumatic diseases. Effective Pain Management Treatment Options Treatment for musculoskeletal disorders depends on the severity of your condition. The primary goal of pain http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521
  3. 3. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 management is to return the patients to optimal function and thereby improve the quality of their lives. While occasional pain may be addressed via exercises and over- the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, moderate to severe disorders may require different treatment approaches such as combination of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic options. Professional healthcare centers provide customized treatment options such as: • Physical or occupational therapy • Prolotherapy • Chiropractic care • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) • Regular exercise programs • Therapeutic massage • Spinal manipulation • NSAIDs • Heat/cold application For those with fibromyalgia, medications to increase the body's levels of serotonin and norepinephrine are often prescribed in low doses.
