Musculoskeletal disorders are the injuries or pain arising in the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons and structures which support limbs, neck and back. These disorders are caused due to sudden exertion, repetitive movements and overexposure to force, vibration and awkward postures. Complete body ache, the feeling of muscles being pulled or overworked and burning or twitching sensations are general signs. The other symptoms are pain, fatigue and disturbance of sleep. These disorders can be treated by different manual therapy techniques. NSAIDs are also prescribed to treat inflammation and pain.
