Disorders of the musculoskeletal system are more common than any other long-term health problem. These can include arthritis, rheumatism, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia; and the more pedestrian strains, sprains and injuries associated with day-to-day activities. Even individuals who don't do a great deal of exercise or physical activity are susceptible to developing these conditions. In fact, a sedentary lifestyle will often result in poor posture, tight muscles, and back pain. It's important to address these problems as they arise, rather than allowing them to continue and compound. Athletes are also susceptable to musculoskeletal pain through overuse, injury and surgery.
Managing musculoskeletal health varies from one individual to another. Reducing inflammation is often a key treatment strategy - as this will both reduce pain and ease symptoms. Other goals include improving circulation, building bone strength and supporting connective tissue. Nutrition, herbal medicine, massage and acupuncture can all play an important role in treating musculoskeletal conditions, both acutely and in the long term.
