Many individuals suffer from soft tissue injuries including ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints, cartilage, nerves, and bones. These soft tissue injuries are often referred to as musculoskeletal disorders. Aside from psychiatric disorders, musculoskeletal disorders are the largest cause of global disability. Everyone is at risk of some sort of musculoskeletal disease, but we also have the ability to prevent them. Movement can be the most effective (and financially friendly) treatment of different types of musculoskeletal disease including carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, trigger finger (gamer’s finger).
Everyone must be committed to his or her own body. We only have one chance to take care of our bodies to the best of our ability. Our bodies are made to perform amazing things. Often times many of us don’t take advantage of the things we are capable of. Start caring for your body and follow these simple steps to prevent musculoskeletal disease:
- Engage different parts of your body.
- Warm up your body
- Get up and exercise!
- Don’t overdo it – listen to your body and rest when you feel the need.
