Musculoskeletal pain is, as its name entails, pain that stems from the way in which the muscles and skeletal structures interact. It can be triggered by anything from a traumatic injury (such as a car accident), overuse (such as work injuries and many types of athletic injuries), or simply related to postural strain and poor body mechanics.
Because there are so many causes of this type of pain, anyone from any lifestyle or athletic ability can experience it, and the areas in which it can strike are equally as diverse.
Minneapolis Health and Wellness NE provides skilled physical therapy to remedy any type of musculoskeletal pain.
How Minneapolis Health and Wellness Treats Musculoskeletal Pain
Our initial examination focuses on determining the root cause, which is essential to long-term pain relief. We complete a detailed assessment of posture, biomechanics, and lifestyle and movement patterns; this helps us determine all contributing factors that can influence both a patient’s healing process and pain.
Following this, we construct a collaborative, multifaceted care plan to not only address the symptoms but also remedy the root cause. Your care plan will be individualized to your needs and will address each contributing factor to ensure the best possible outcome.
During our physical examination, will also educate patients on self-management techniques, exercise programs, and how to prevent re-injury to the area.
As stated above, our care plans are collaborative and team-focused, and the patients plays large roles in their teams. Without patient participation, treatment tends to be much less successful.
