Musculoskeletal or orthopaedic conditions are diseases or illnesses that affect the joints, muscles, bones, and spine that cause patients physical disability and long-term pain.
Symptoms of musculoskeletal conditions include the following:
- back pain/neck pain
- aching and stiffness of the muscles
- sleep disturbances, and several others.
The rehabilitation process for musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions is recommended to patients for the following reasons:
- to prepare for surgery
- to improve the functioning of muscles and bones after surgery
- as an option to avoid surgery
- to manage a musculoskeletal condition post-surgery
The treatment options for this condition are:
- modified or restricted activity
- corticosteroid administration
- surgical repair
- shock wave therapy
- physical therapy (physiotherapy)
Some types of musculoskeletal/orthopedic conditions are arthritis, Sciatica, and Osteoporosis.
Arthritis is the swelling and discomfort in one or more joints. The main symptom of arthritis is joint pain and stiffness that usually worsen as the person ages. Physiotherapy is a common treatment for people who have arthritis. Physiotherapists are included in a team of health professionals offering services to help you maintain your active and independent life. Use of elliptical machines, swimming, and other soft impact exercises that are gentle on your joints are less likely to cause further injury and improve your mobility.
Sciatica refers to the pain you feel from your lower back, through your hips and buttocks, and down your spine. Usually, Sciatica affects only one side of the body. Musculoskeletal or orthopedic rehabilitation includes physical therapy treatment that has been proven to help with pain caused by Sciatica. Physiotherapy reduces inflammation and reduces the tension of the muscles, thus relieving the pain of the symptom. This allows you to get back to the activities that you enjoy doing without pain.
Osteoporosis is a type of disease that causes the bones to weaken to the point of getting easily broken. The body part most often affected by Osteoporosis are the hip bones, the spine (back bones), and the wrist. The disease is also called a silent disease because the individual may not notice any changes until he’s got a broken bone.
In the management and treatment of Osteoporosis, a physiotherapy is an effective option. It helps in pain management strategies, helps improve posture and balance, and makes the muscles and bones stronger. Lower impact exercise and lifting weight increase bone strength, decreasing the fracture risk. Other exercises that will help include: walking, jogging, jumping rope, climbing stairs, hiking, and even dancing are recommended.
