Musculoskeletal medicine is useful for pain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. For example, both acute and chronic back and neck pain, trigger points, sciatic-type pain, arthritis, whiplash, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, disc and nerve pain.
Musculoskeletal physicians use various evidence-based therapies, including spinal mobilisation and manipulation, exercise prescription, acupuncture, prolotherapy and dry needling, as well as more specialised spinal injection techniques such as nerve blocks & epidural injections. The peripheral joints such as the ankle, knee, hip, elbow and shoulder are also managed along similar lines emphasizing education and self-management.
