Musculoskeletal Pain

Understanding Musculoskeletal Pain

Musculoskeletal pain refers to discomfort or pain in structures that are vital to the body's movement, including bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. This type of pain can be localized in one area or spread across a larger part of the body. Causes can range from daily activities, improper posture, overuse, or due to an injury or underlying medical condition.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Musculoskeletal Pain

Symptoms of musculoskeletal pain may widely vary but often include a deep, aching sensation, sharp or dull pain, stiffness, burning sensations in the muscles, and fatiguing easily. Diagnosing musculoskeletal pain requires a thorough medical examination by a healthcare professional. In-depth patient history, physical examination, and if necessary, diagnostic tests like X-rays, MRI, or EMG are used.

Treatment and Management

Treatment of musculoskeletal pain at Sheen Vein & Cosmetics is done by using Photobiomodulation. PBM uses light therapy to activate the body's own healing mechanisms which in turn help to accelerate the healing process while also decreasing the inflammation associated with the injured tissue. This in itself decreases the discomfort many people experience with the injury.
