Moving Forward – Physiotherapy For Musculoskeletal Health And Wellbeing
Released by the National Institute for Health Research is a publication called MOVING FORWARD Physiotherapy for Musculoskeletal (MSK) Health and Wellbeing. The publication highlights how important physiotherapy is for preventing and reducing the impact of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.
What Are MSK (Musculoskeletal) Conditions
MSK conditions range from simple strains and sprains to long-term conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It covers problems affecting joints, bones and muscles as well as rare conditions of the immune system.
Characterised by pain and loss of function, these conditions can diminish quality of life, impact on family and social relationships, make everyday activities difficult and limit a person’s capacity to work.
