What is a musculoskeletal condition?
Musculoskeletal conditions encompass a wide range of disorders that affect bones, joints, and connective tissues. In Canada, 11 million people over the age of 12 years old are affected by a musculoskeletal condition every year.
Common examples of musculoskeletal conditions include:
Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, is a condition characterized by inflammation and irritation of a tendon, which is the thick fibrous tissue connecting muscles to bones. It commonly occurs due to repetitive movements, overuse, or sudden injury. Symptoms of tendonitis include pain, swelling, and limited range of motion in the affected area. Our skilled physiotherapists will assess your condition and design a tailored treatment plan that may include manual therapy, targeted exercises, and modalities to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the hand and wrist, resulting from the compression of the median nerve. This condition often occurs due to repetitive hand and wrist movements, leading to symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers. Our dedicated physiotherapists have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating carpal tunnel syndrome. Treatment options may include manual therapy techniques, exercises to improve hand and wrist mobility, and ergonomic recommendations to prevent further aggravation.
Tension, or muscle tension, refers to the sensation of tightness, stiffness, or discomfort in the muscles. It can result from various factors, including stress, poor posture, muscle imbalances, or overexertion. Our skilled physiotherapists will conduct a thorough assessment to identify the underlying causes of your tension and develop a personalized treatment plan. This may involve a combination of manual therapy techniques, stretching exercises, relaxation techniques, and postural education to relieve muscle tension and improve overall musculoskeletal function.
Back pain is a prevalent musculoskeletal condition that can range from mild discomfort to severe debilitating pain. It may be caused by factors such as poor posture, muscle strains, herniated discs, or underlying medical conditions. Our experienced physiotherapists will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the root cause of your back pain. Treatment approaches may include manual therapy, targeted exercises to strengthen the supporting muscles, postural correction techniques, and pain management strategies.
