Musculoskeletal Injuries & Care Q & A

Why do I have musculoskeletal pain?

Musculoskeletal pain, inflammation, and discomfort can occur for a wide variety of reasons throughout any of your joints, bones, muscles, or connective tissues. Obviously, if you have an injury, you can tear or rupture bones or soft tissues and wind up in pain.

Causes of musculoskeletal discomfort aren’t always this obvious. Sometimes you can develop musculoskeletal pain due to:

  • Overuse or repetitive movements
  • Wear-and-tear
  • Stress fractures
  • Poor posture
  • Sprains and strains
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Muscle shortening

Musculoskeletal pain might be constant, or it may come and go with movement, and even worsen during sports or exercise. But no matter how minor or how severe your musculoskeletal discomfort may be, it’s important to find out the cause before it progresses and affects your daily activity any further.

When should I see a doctor for musculoskeletal care?

  • An injury/sports injury
  • Discomfort that affects your sleep
  • Decreased sports performance
  • Muscle twitching or burning
  • Pins-and-needles sensations
  • Widespread or localized aching

You should also seek medical treatment if your musculoskeletal symptoms are starting to inhibit your training and affect your sports performance, even if the issue is only sporadic. Dr. Irizarry-Román thoroughly evaluates you and your medical history, and may even order imaging tests, like X-rays or ultrasounds, to diagnose your musculoskeletal condition.

How is musculoskeletal pain treated?

Your musculoskeletal care plan at No Mercy Sports Medicine is tailored to your specific condition and the severity of your symptoms. Comprehensive musculoskeletal care includes a combination of any of the following therapies:

  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Osteopathic manipulation
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Platelet-rich plasma injections
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Because lingering pain without an obvious injury is one of the biggest obstacles faced by athletes and anyone who wants to stay active, Dr. Irizarry-Román works diligently to find the best possible solution to help you get back to 100%.
