What Can Cause Musculoskeletal Pain? 

The causes of musculoskeletal pain can be due to a few reasons including muscle damage due to the wear and tear of everyday life and trauma to a certain area (accidents, falls. Sprains, fractures, etc.) can cause musculoskeletal pain. Poor posture can also cause pain in your muscles and spine.

What Are The Signs & Symptoms 

The amount of pain you can feel can vary based on where it is located. Bone pain is dull, sharp, stabbing or deep and is typically more uncomfortable than muscle or tendon pain. Muscle pain can be intense and short-lived if it is caused by cramp, tendon pain may feel like a sharp pain if an injury caused it. It will usually worsen when you move or stretch the affected tendon, and improve with rest. Last but not least joint pain feels like an ache which can be accompanied by stiffness and swelling. Other symptoms can include: 

  • Stiffness
  • Soreness
  • Swelling 
  • Redness
  • Cracking or popping sound in the joint
  • Trouble moving the affected area
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty Sleeping 
  • Muscle Spasms 
  • Bruising 

How Can A Musculoskeletal Specialist Help You? 

Musculoskeletal Specialists have the power to help and reduce the impact of a broad range of health conditions including trauma, injuries, disorders and diseases. They can also help with other health interventions, such as medical and surgical interventions to help achieve the best possible outcome when it comes to recovery. The musculoskeletal specialists at OpenHealth Clinic can help to slow down any chronic health conditions which can feel like they are taking over your life. 

What Services Do OpenHealth Offer?


Osteopathy is a treatment where your practitioner will use their hands to find areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain in your body – your spine in particular. The aim is to restore balance in the body, not just in how it moves, but also in how it functions when rest and moving. 


Through certain exercises, physiotherapy will help people who are affected by an injury. Physiotherapists have a wide set of skills which will help you to restore your body back to health. Joint mobilisation techniques, for example, will be used for improving muscle function. 

Sports Massage 

A sports massage is a form of massage which involves the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person who is usually engaged in physical activity. A sports massage is used to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in the soft tissue which can be caused by repetitive strain or strenuous physical activity. 


Rehabilitation is a slow step by step process which will aim to help you recover from your strain or injury in the best possible way. The main aim when it comes to rehabilitation is to help you get moving again, regain skills and regain strength. 


Acupuncture is the insertion and manipulation of fine needles at various points to help calm your body’s neural and hormonal pathways.
