MUSCULOSKELETAL/RHEUMATIC DISORDERS

MUSCULOSKELETAL/RHEUMATIC DISORDERS

Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, spine etc.).

Common musculoskeletal disorders include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Muscle strain
  • Ligament Sprain/Tears
  • Spondylosis
  • Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
  • Epicondylitis
  • Trigger Finger / Thumb
  • Lumbago
  • Herniated Disc
  • Arthritis
  • Knee pain
  • Heel pain
  • Fractures

Bad posture (sitting, standing and even sleeping) can cause these issues. Other causes could be overuse, accident, deficiencies, sedentary lifestyle, muscle imbalances/weaknesses, congenital problems or underlying neurological/autoimmune disorders. Regardless of the cause, anything that restricts our movement can be debilitating. Pain can affect our sleep, productivity and mental health over time. Reliance on painkillers gives rise to side effects in the long term.

Diet

A diet providing adequate amounts of good quality protein, vitamins , minerals, joint health aids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds can help one heal faster from MSD’s. It also protects from muscle loss during periods of inactivity and injury recurrence to a certain extent.

Customised Exercise Plan

Exercise

Exercise can cause and prevent injuries. Overtraining, improper form, exercise intensity and even wrong footwear can cause issues. A detailed biomechanical evaluation by our expert physiotherapists and podiatrists will help us identify the problem and offer solutions with rehab, footwear recommendations and active exercises to get you back on your feet. The goal of exercise therapy is not just recovery but preserving muscle during inactivity and preventing recurrence. Post recovery, a customised and structured exercise program that includes optimal pre and post workout care will ensure you continue to move freely.

Psychology

Conducted online by a Clinical Psychologist

Living with pain is physically and emotionally stressful. Chronic stress is known to change the levels of stress hormones and neurochemicals found within your brain and nervous system; these can affect your mood, thinking and behavior and also delay recovery. Our team of clinical psychologists offer relaxation techniques that can help ease pain related distress and aid recovery.
