MSK Therapy

MSK therapy (musculoskeletal)

MSK therapy typically refers to therapy focused on musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, which involve the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and other related structures in the body. MSK therapy can encompass various approaches:

Physical Therapy: This involves exercises, stretches, manual therapy, and modalities like heat or cold therapy to improve movement, reduce pain, and promote healing in musculoskeletal conditions.

Occupational Therapy: Address MSK conditions by adapting tasks and environments to support individuals with injuries or chronic conditions affecting their musculoskeletal system.

Sports Therapy: This is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on preventing and rehabilitating sports-related injuries, often involving techniques to strengthen and support the musculoskeletal system.

The goal of MSK therapy is to improve mobility, reduce pain, prevent further injury, and enhance overall physical function and well-being. Treatment plans can vary widely depending on the specific condition and the individual’s needs.
