What are Musculoskeletal Injuries?

musculoskeletal injuries

Musculoskeletal injuries occur when either the muscular or skeletal system is injured. The most common injuries arise from the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons or nerves. These injuries are normally a result of either an increased strain or a repetitive strain on the different musculoskeletal system. We specialise in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems such as whiplash, sports injuries, low back pain, arthritis, sprained ligaments and joints, strained muscles and post-operative pain or weakness. We use a range of treatments such as mobilisations, manipulations, massage, postural correction and ultrasound.
