    About musculoskeletal 
    disorders

    These disorders include muscles, joints, bones and neurological (nerve) conditions that affect movement. They can include low back (lumbar), thoracic and neck (cervical) pain or pain in other joints such as the knee or the shoulder.

    What to expect

    A physiotherapist will establish a treatment regime and management program for you to ensure that your injury is healing as quickly as possible. Later in the healing process, the physiotherapist's tasks also include avoiding secondary complications, such as, unecessary stiffness or weakness and whenever possible, ensuring that the problem doesn't recur.
