What causes musculoskeletal injuries?

Musculoskeletal injuries can be the result of damage sustained to the muscular or skeletal systems. This includes your bones, tendons, muscles, nerves, ligaments, and blood vessels.

Many musculoskeletal injuries are overuse injuries that occur as a result of strenuous and/or repetitive activity, making them a very common work-related injury. Some of the most traumatic musculoskeletal injuries are crush injuries that can result in permanent damage to the limbs, bones, ligaments, tissues, and other health complications.

Some of the most common reasons for a person sustaining this kind of injury are:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Falls
  • Sprains
  • Sports injuries
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Direct blows to the muscle

Severe damage to the musculoskeletal system can cause immense weakness, decreased range of motion, chronic pain, and stiffness that prevent an individual’s ability to do many things independently.

A few examples of everyday tasks they may have trouble with are dressing and feeding themselves, walking, running, holding and lifting items, taking care of their families, and working at their job. This can take a toll on a person’s confidence, mood, morale, and overall mental and emotional health as they struggle to adjust to life around the limitations of their injury.

If you’ve received a musculoskeletal injury, it’s important that you have a therapist that is dedicated to your overall well-being and safety and can give you the proper care and attention your condition requires. Although in some cases, injuries are severe and damage is irreversible, this does not mean you should give up on maintaining overall wellness, or the notion of leading a healthy life.

What conditions can orthopedic care help with?

The list of conditions that orthopedic care can help treat is neverending, however, some of the most commons ones are as follows:

  • ACL tears
  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Foot and ankle injuries
  • Dizziness, vertigo
  • Hip and knee pain
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Throwing injuries
  • Elbow and wrist pain
  • Work injuries
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Running injuries
  • Shoulder pain

We receive many first-time physical therapy patients who feel that their appointments would be uncomfortable, unpleasant, or even agonizing because of their condition or illness. This is not the case! We strive to make sure each of our patients feels comfortable and informed about their condition, as well as what modalities their therapist recommends for treatment.

What should I expect with treatment?

If you’re dealing with musculoskeletal pain from an injury or chronic condition, it’s important to know what your options are as far as treatment and pain management goes.

A Grasmere Physical Therapy therapist can work one on one with you to assess the severity of your condition and decide what levels of care you may need. We have the equipment to objectively assess strength, power, and endurance levels so that we can create the best treatment program possible for your improvement and recovery.


The therapists at our clinic are orthopedic movement specialists who are educated in analyzing mobility issues with walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and almost every other form of physical activity. This especially comes in handy with musculoskeletal injuries, because they can assess any restrictions or immobilities you need help with.

Some common methods of treatment our clinic may recommend for your condition are as follows:

  • Manual therapy
  • Blood flow restriction bands
  • Stroboscopic training (helps with ACL tears, traumatic brain injuries, and Parkinson’s disease)
  • Biofeedback techniques/Ultrasound therapy
  • Cupping
  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles
