Musculoskeletal Injuries, also known as Repetitive Strain Injuries, involve the following structures: bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, soft tissues, blood vessels and nerves. The common examples include: tendinitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc..
Joint sprain and inflammation are common, especially in sports or workplace. Repeated wear and tear tend to cause tendonitis, muscle strains and other overexertion injuries. Early symptoms often include: swelling, redness, pain, numbness or moving difficulty.
When back muscles can not protect the spine, back pain will often occurs. Muscle spasms usually indicate the lower back irritation, because of muscle injury or ligament injury. Muscle injuries may recover quickly, as the muscles have ample blood supply.
