We want to inform you about how to self manage musculoskeletal issues. Why…

Icon

Research suggests that more than 50% of pain related consultations are due to Musculoskeletal issues. Simply, musculoskeletal refers to muscle and bone. Approximately 80% of adults will experience back pain and approximately 30% of children. To date, most research into chronic low back pain is focused on diagnostic imaging and structural abnormalities of the spine, however the correlation between symptoms and diagnostic imaging is weak. Those with a new episode of back pain, less than 1% will actually have a case where a serious cause requires specific treatment e.g. such as a fracture or disease.

Psychological factors also play a part e.g. research suggests that after an acute episode of low back pain, people may become fearful of movement due to the pain. This can cause muscle activation patterns to be altered during movement, which interestingly can be later activated or aggravated by emotional factors. Read more here.

Prevention is better than cure, is ever growing in importance!

Pain is not a bad thing, it is essential to our very existance, however, there are modalities for self care/ management, that if put in place (the earlier the better) would save us a lot of time, money, re-injury and prolonged/ expensive treatments.

With the education and toolbox we all have opportunities to prevent, preventable injuries, illnesses and diseases. Using our clinical experience and expertise, we can help to educate people to have a better understanding of pain and the healing processes and when given the tools, people can self manage to a healthier physical and mental being.
