Musculoskeletal Pain

Category: Musculoskeletal Pain

Musculoskeletal Pain
Musculoskeletal pain is the most common type of chronic pain that Americans experience. This origin of pain occurs in the muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. The feeling of pain can occur in many places of the body such as the feet, legs, knees, shoulders, neck, wrists, and/or hips1.

Musculoskeletal pain can be acute or chronic and vary in severity, either way, the pain is not a pleasant feeling. There are effective treatment options that do not require medication, for patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain. This can involve a combination of therapy and healthy lifestyle changes. Poor diet, a lack of physical activity, and insufficient sleep can reinforce pain and/or increase the severity, duration, and location of the pain1. “Moderate to strong evidence suggests that exercise therapy and psychosocial interventions are effective for relieving pain and improving function for musculoskeletal pain”2.

If you or someone you know is suffering from musculoskeletal pain, you may want to consider chiropractic care. You have nothing to lose but your pain!

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and noninvasive form of care that can be beneficial for patients with chronic pain, especially of musculoskeletal origin.
