We understand that these injuries can affect muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. When muscles stay contracted for too long, blood flow can be affected. Too much pressure or strain on the tendons and ligaments causes inflammation and pain.
Musculoskeletal disorders requires recognition, assessment and control of the injury. Otherwise over time the body will gradually begin to restrict your movements and create pain.
They typically develop when the same muscles are used over and over again or for a long time without taking time to rest. The chance of getting this type of injury increases if the force or pressure exerted is high and/or when the movements are repetitive in nature. Awkward posture or poor ergonomics can also be a cause, the more static or poor ergonomics will increase likelihood the person will be injured.
We can help begin the process to getting better and to avoid future injuries.
