Musculoskeletal pain

Pain is the most common complaint in outpatient conditions and is one of the main reasons for visiting a doctor.

Musculoskeletal pain refers to algal pain which can be located in any locomotor system structures or components.

Musculoskeletal pain affects muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as bones.

The causes of this pain may be very different (post-traumatic, inflammatory, infectious, degenerative or malignant), which include: postural overload, repetitive movements, tiredness and long period of immobility, posture changes (spine disorders) and muscle shortening. All of these cause the muscles to malfunction and to produce pain. One of the most frequent musculoskeletal pain is the one in the back, which is among the most important adult health problems caused by lifestyle, working places and other activities they do. Other situations described as musculoskeletal pain are sprains - acute traumatic injuries that affect the ligaments. The sprain is produced by a rupture or overextension of a joint. The most frequent locations of sprains are the following: ankle, knee and wrist. In addition, the most common location of acute pain is the knee. Either it is an acute traumatic injury with tendon damage, such as: knee elongation or joint damage plus inflammation (arthritis) or cartilaginous structure degeneration (osteoarthritic disease) - all of these are the source of acute musculoskeletal pain.

It is very important to lower the acute and unbearable pain, because it can grow into chronic pain. If the pain doesn't go away and lasts for a few days, you shouldn't wait any longer, but go and see the doctor.

To reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation, use Fastum® gel.
