Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect the skeletal, joint, muscular or outer nervous system and include inflammatory disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and also degenerative problems like osteoarthritis, plus simple strains and sprains encountered in everyday life. 

Whether your injury, aches and pains are new or longstanding our physios are trained to deliver the very best treatment approaches to help you get better or manage your condition. Lincolnshire Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinics also specialise in sports rehabilitation and the treatment of sports injuries.

With a broad range of disorders, injuries, and MSK conditions, many different symptoms might arise. The most common include:

  • joint pain
  • tenderness
  • reduced range of motion
  • inflammation
  • muscle spasms or cramps
  • sleep disturbance
  • aching
  • stiffness
  • burning sensations
  • pain increase with activity

Musculoskeletal conditions have various causes, including:

  • overuse
  • poor posture
  • trauma
  • previous injury
  • wear and tear

MSK conditions tend to fall within two categories: acute or chronic. Acute conditions refer to sudden or severe injuries or conditions, such as a sprained ankle. Chronic conditions refer to more long-lasting situations, such as arthritis, where ongoing pain management is vital.
