Musculoskeletal Therapy: A Large Impact on Your Quality of Life

Musculoskeletal Therapy: A Large Impact on Your Quality of Life

Whether from work or play, severe injuries can occur at any point in time and can have a large impact on your quality of life and activities of daily living. Injuries can lead to severe and often debilitating symptoms like numbness, pain, swelling and tingling. If you are injured, then you should get in touch with a musculoskeletal consultant who can help identify the extent of the injury and suggest the optimum treatment.

Musculoskeletal injuries are by far some of the most common workplace injuries that take place in UK and other parts of the world. Chronic musculoskeletal conditions often lead to serious disability, morbidity, lingering psychological distress as well as sleep disorders. Additionally, musculoskeletal problems are regarded as the most common factor for chronic disability. More than 50% of people complain of lower back pain at some point in their lives. This is a very complex condition that is caused by personal as well as work related factors. Over the last decade or so, cases of work related back pains and disability have reached an all-time high and is now one of the main forms of disability.

If you are suffering from lower back pains, it is very important that you do not ignore it and get in touch with a musculoskeletal expert as soon as possible. Some conservative measures might include:

  • Use ergonomic furniture that can keep such complications to a minimum
  • Use healthy postural techniques when twisting, bending and heavy lifting
  • Do not stay in certain positions for prolonged durations or perform certain repetitive actions such as standing, walking, sitting and driving a motor vehicle as they have been linked to occupational lower back pains

If you start to experience musculoskeletal discomfort, you should consult a musculoskeletal specialist who has the training, knowledge and expertise to manage these conditions. Treatment is typically covered by health insurance companies or is available for self-pay patients.
