Diagnosis, Treatment of and Rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal Pain

It is imperative to make a specific and accurate diagnosis of musculoskeletal pain. The correct diagnosis is the cause-effect relationship which accurately accounts for the mechanism leading to the occurrence of pain.

Pain occurs via two mechanisms:

  • a) Tissue damage: The type of pain caused by trauma, strain and sports injuries.
  • b) Pain caused by dysfunction: Pain caused by the joints and soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system have lost optimal their function.

What is Therapeutic Exercise? Where do we Use It?

Therapeutic exercise is the single modality which we incorporate in the treatment of all our patients and clients. The reason is that exercise aims to manage the functions of the musculoskeletal system (flexibility, strength, endurance, speed and ajility). No treatment plan would be effective without bringing the musculoskeletal functions to normal. As a result, therapeutic exercise forms the basis of treatment of musculoskeletal problems.
