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.
Osteoporosis is a progressive disease resulting in a reduction in the mass and density of bone and physiotherapy can assist in advising strengthening exercises and activity that can reduce it’s effect.
