Muscle tissue can be damaged with the wear and tear of daily activities or trauma to a certain area. People suffering from musculoskeletal pain often times complain that their entire bodies ache. Their muscles may feel like they have been pulled or overworked, and can twitch or burn. This type of pain can also cause fatigue and sleeplessness.
Many times, patients receive pain relief from different techniques of manual therapy. Some patients may also benefit from mobilization if they suffer from spinal alignment problems. Another type of musculoskeletal pain can be caused from a disorder called fibromyalgia. Treatment options for these patients may include, injections in or around the painful sites, exercise or physical therapy, acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic care, and therapeutic massage.
