Musculoskeletal conditions are a wide range of ailments that affect the tissues that make up your body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones.

These conditions include the following common types, and more:

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I find relief before my appointment?

One of the most tried-and-true methods of finding pain relief for a damaged muscle before you can receive medical attention is known as the RICE method:

  • Rest the affected area
  • Ice applied on the area can reduce pain swelling
  • Compression using an appropriate bandage can reduce further swelling
  • Elevate the affected area to a position above your heart

While the RICE method can help you find temporary pain relief, it’s important to see a rheumatologist or an orthopedist when pain persists!

Our physical therapist is here to collaborate with your rheumatologist and offer you tailor-made care at every step of the way.
