MUSCLE, JOINT, TENDON PAIN OR INJURY

 

 

Issues related to these are involved with the musculoskeletal system and also include ligaments and the bursae. The movement of the body is made possible because of the interaction of both the muscular and skeletal system.

 

 

Back to basics:

  • Muscles are connected to Bones by Tendons (tough, flexible bands of fibrous tissue).
  • Bones are connected to each other by Ligaments (Connective tissue pairing two or more bones or cartilage together.)
  • Where bones meet each other is known as the Joint. The muscles activate movement of a joint which is attached to two different bones.
  • Muscle move by contracting (shortening) or relaxing (lengthening).

Muscular Pain

Also Known As: Myalgia.

Symptoms: Muscle cramps, tension & tightness, dull ache, weakness.

Common causes: Injury, physical trauma from overuse or impact, muscular atrophy (decreased size of muscle due age, deterioration from disease or illness), tension and emotional stress from inhibitory lifestyles or working environments, prescripted drugs, substance abuse, electrolyte imbalance, autoimmune disease (such as fibromyalgia), auto-immune disease (such as lyme disease, which causes muscles fibres to breakdown and get released into the bloodstream.

Joint Pain

Also Known As: Arthralgia

Common Symptoms: Restricted mobility, Sharp pain, fever in the joint, crackling or clicking sounds, swelling, stiffness with movement after prolonged rest.

Common causes: Injury, virus or disease (such as arthritis, gout), side effects from prescribed drugs, infections, creptis (when the cartilage around joints have worn down and exposes the ends of joints to grind against each other or when fractured bones touch each other.

Bone Pain

Also Know As: Ostealgia

Common Symptoms: Very deep dull ache or sharp pain.

Common causes: Injury, illness (such as sepsis, leukemia), osteoporosis.

Tendon Pain

Also Known As: Tendinopathy

Common Symptoms: Swelling, tender, warmth and redness, soreness especially when stretched or moved.

Common causes: Injury, inflammation of the fluid-filled sheath that surrounds a tendon,

Trauma can occur within any of these areas in the body from a wide variety and combination of factors, which other than a physical injury may also be due to a number of disease, infection, autoimmune disorders, side effects from prescribed drugs, substance abuse, mineral deficiency, organ inflammation or even due to congenital or constitutional defect. Common symptoms include various degrees of pain, inflammation, weakness, stiffness and restricted mobility.

Physical trauma to any of these areas are commonly identified from a dormant lifestyle or working environment, work which involves physical repetitive overstrain, overload, and impact on the body.

Diagnosis:

A physical examination is conducted to observe the plane of the posture, landscape, texture and tenderness, any atrophy (muscle deterioration), any hypertrophy (muscle enlargement, normally due to training a muscle or muscle compensation of a weaker muscle), establishing the muscles which are effected and the degree to which they are effected. Involuntary movements or reflexes are also observed to identify possible nerve damage. A joint’s range of motion and muscle tone is assessed by applying various strength testing such as, rising, squatting, holding the arms extended, with palms up for a minute without movement.

Suggested Treatments and Prices:

SPORTS THERAPY

Treatment specific techniques such as myofascial release and neuromuscular techniques are applied to effectively identify radiating pain and deep pain stored in the muscles from an area which then is worked on in a way to reduce it. Reflex points, or knots, will also be identified and worked on to be relieved…
