Musculoskeletal Pain

Musculoskeletal pain is most often caused by an injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves. Along with accidents and injuries, musculoskeletal pain can also be caused by overuse. Lower back pain from overuse is the most common work-related diagnosis. Poor posture or prolonged immobilization can also cause musculoskeletal pain. Symptoms of musculoskeletal pain include some of the following: Localized or widespread pain that can worsen with movement, aching or stiffness of the entire body and the feeling that your muscles have been pulled or overworked.

Trinity Health Orthopedic specialists will conduct a thorough medical history, as well as a hands-on examination looking for the source of the pain. Laboratory tests and X-rays will follow the initial examination to pinpoint the source of pain. Based on the findings from your examination and the results of these tests, your doctor should be able to diagnose the cause and type of your pain. This will help him or her to create a treatment plan for you.

Musculoskeletal pain treatment will vary depending on whether the patient is experiencing bone, muscle, ligament, tendon, joint, or some other kind of musculoskeletal pain. Treatments include but are not limited to the following: physical or occupational therapy, a splint to immobilize the affected joint to allow healing, heat or cold on the affected area, injections with anesthetic or anti-inflammatory medications in or around the painful sites, and strengthening and conditioning exercises.
