Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries or pain in the body’s joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. They can affect many different parts of the body and can arise from a sudden exertion (e.g., lifting a heavy object), a postural issue or a repetitive motion. Examples of specific disorders are carpal tunnel syndrome or back pain.
Sports injuries are injuries that occur during an athletic activity. They can result from acute trauma, or from overuse of a particular body part. Overuse and repetitive stress injury problems associated with sports include runner’s knee or tennis elbow.
