Are most musculoskeletal injuries preventable?

True or False? Most musculoskeletal injuries are preventable.

A: True.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders are injuries or disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage, and spinal discs. When you suffer from musculoskeletal disorders, simple movements such as walking, driving, and cooking meals can be difficult.

Symptoms of musculoskeletal injuries can include pain, stiffness, swelling, numbness, and tingling. A musculoskeletal (MSK) assessment is the best way to identify your risk factors for certain injuries if you are dealing with any of these common symptoms. Once your risk factors are identified, a home therapy program designed by our expert therapists can help prevent future injuries.
