Musculoskeletal Disorders

Published on 18th September 2020

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) are conditions that affect the nerves, tendons, muscles and their supporting structures, such as the discs in your back.  Back injuries such as lower back pain and disc degeneration account for an estimated 60% of all MSDs, followed by pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, tendonitis, tennis elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injuries.  The NHS states that MSD’s affect 1 in 4 adults in the UK (Graham Stringer (2011)).

MSDs usually occur when muscle tissues are damaged from wear and tear, accidents, falls and sprains.  Poor posture can also lead to problems, as can over-using specific muscles and performing repetitive movements.  Even standing or sitting still for long periods can lead to MSDs.

Living with the chronic, long-term pain of an MSD can impact severely on the sufferer’s daily life and can even lead to depression and insomnia. So, what can you do to alleviate the pain and discomfort of a musculoskeletal disorder?  Well, you’ve taken the first step by coming to our website!

Your next steps are:

You Don’t Know The Cause of Your Pain:

Book a 1 hour  Sports Therapy Session with one of our MSD experts and have an in-depth consultation to determine the likely source of your pain. Once the root cause has been identified, you will receive a tailored, hands-on treatment, followed by exercises for home use and a treatment plan for rehabilitation. 

You Know What is Causing Your Pain:

Then there's no need for an in depth consultation, simply book a Remedial Massage to start tackling the problem with a tailored treatment for your condition, receive exercises for home use (if appropriate) and discuss your treatment plan.

For More General Discomfort

Book a Sports Massage or a Deep Tissue Massage to relieve muscle tension, reduce aches and pains, avoid injury and keep your muscles at the optimum health.

If you’re in pain and you want a fast-track route to getting it sorted then call us on 01457 835491.  One of our friendly team will be happy to have a chat and guide you to the right treatment for your needs.
