Musculoskeletal disorders or diseases can affect bones, muscles and joints. The majority of musculoskeletal conditions develop slowly due to repeated minor injuries, poor posture or stress on particular muscles. These conditions are treated either conservatively or may require surgery. Typically, musculoskeletal injuries are characterized by chronic pain and limited mobility. UHealth Physical Therapy offers several specialized physical and occupational therapy options for the treatment of all forms of musculoskeletal conditions. We offer a variety of treatments that help to increase mobility and relieve pain.
Conditions that are typically characterized as musculoskeletal injury are: tendonosis, muscle strains, ligament sprains, tunnel syndromes, lumbar and cervical pain.
