Musculoskeletal Conditions: A Closer Look

Musculoskeletal conditions

  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain (shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle, etc.)
  • Connective tissue disorders (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, etc.)
  • Degenerative joint disease–osteoarthritis
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Amputation and limb loss
  • Muscle and tendon injuries

 

The management of these conditions begins with a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation including appropriate imaging studies. Once the condition has been appropriately diagnosed treatment is initiated. The goal is not only to treat the condition, but also to help the patient optimize function and reduce the risk for further problems.
