The Musculoskeletal (MSK) System is a complex network of muscles, ones, joints, tendons and ligaments. This is the body’s network system that enable us to move and perform daily activities. The Musculoskeletal system provides the body with structure and protects functions within our bodies.

Americans are celebrating the awareness of Musculoskeletal Conditions during the month of October in order to create awareness. They call it National Chiropractic Health Month. Musculoskeletal conditions are the leading contributor to disability in four of the six World Health Organisation regions of which African regions ranked third.

More than one in two adults experience disabling Musculoskeletal Conditions such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain, systemic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis. Although Musculoskeletal Conditions has no age limit, healthy aging is a key priority for everyone. Chiropractors not only treat Musculoskeletal Conditions, but they can assist in the prevention by guidance with preventative measures and postural programs as well as nutritional supplements.

Musculoskeletal conditions are typically characterised by persistent pain and limitations in mobility, dexterity and functional ability. This reduces people’s ability to work and participate in daily activities and has a major impact on mental wellbeing as well.  Musculoskeletal conditions were the leading cause of disability during 2017 according to case studies.

Symptoms of musculoskeletal conditions include pain, weakness, stiffness, joint noises and decreased range of motion. The pain will feel localised or widespread that can worsen with movement.

Chiropractic Care uses non-invasive techniques to promote physical healing. Over the last decade, Chiropractic care has grown beyond “spinal manipulation” and Chiropractors are now known to be able to assist you with soft tissue mobilisation and massage, stabilisation and training exercises as well as nutrition and postural programs.

Visiting a Chiropractor can also assist you in the following:

  • Improved joint mobility, function and health
  • Decreases degeneration of the joint and connected tissues such as Arthritis
  • Faster recovery proses
  • Increases energy, vitality and improves sleep
  • Decreases pain
  • Decreases the on-going inflammatory process
  • Better posture
  • Better mental health

Chiropractors determine the source of the pain in Musculoskeletal conditions and can restore proper position of the vertebral joints that protect the nerves in the spine which in turn gives the body its ability to address and heal the source of the pain.

Chiropractic care is not only safer than most methods out there, but it will speed up the recovery process and assist the body to start healing itself. Our Musculoskeletal systems are there to enable us to move and function properly. Any type of musculoskeletal pain can be disabling and should not be left untreated.
