Acute & Chronic Musculoskeletal Conditions

Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries or pain in the human musculoskeletal system, including the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back.

An acute injury occurs suddenly and is usually associated with trauma such as cracking a bone, tearing a muscle or bruising. It could be a result of falling or crashing into another player during sports.

A chronic injury is the result of prolonged, repetitive motion that is particularly common in endurance sports such as swimming, running and cycling. If the pain has been present for more than 6-8 weeks this is classified as chronic. Some common examples of chronic injuries are stress fractures, tennis elbow, shin splint and runner’s knee.
