Musculoskeletal

The musculoskeletal system is the complex system of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, joints, cartilage and associated tissues that move the body and maintain its form. 

Musculoskeletal pain is an extremely common problem. Strenuous daily work activities, such as lifting, bending, or prolonged typing, can cause musculoskeletal pain through constant stress on the musculoskeletal system. 

As the population ages, more and more individuals experience pain related to osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel, and degenerative joint and disc diseases. All of these conditions may interfere with a person's normal work and recreational activities. 

Also, in this age of fitness promotion, many people develop musculoskeletal disorders related to overuse of weak or improperly stretched muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Finally, osteoporosis is one of the major health concerns in the U.S. today…and not just among older women. Taking steps to prevent and minimize osteoporosis…from childhood through adulthood…will help keep bones healthy for life.
