Shoulder pain is common with overhead movements such as surfing, swimming, baseball or weightlifting. There are many structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone) which can lead to pain in the shoulder.
Children and adolescents get aches and pains too. By the time they reach twenty years old, up to 75% of children will have had back or neck pain. For one in five, this back pain will become chronic. One in three teens deal with knee pain. The numbers are similar for other areas of musculoskeletal pain.
Arthritis can affect anyone from children to older adults. In Australia 1 in 6 people have arthritis. Arthritis is a group of conditions which affect the joints. These conditions can present as pain, stiffness or reduced movement, swelling, redness or feeling unwell.
The knee is a common joint which is injured in many sports such as AFL, rugby, running and martial arts. It is important to know which structure/s are affected with knee injuries including ligaments, meniscus, tendons and muscles.
Muscle strains and ligament sprains are commonplace and it is important to diagnose the grade and then improve flexibility and strength, enabling a proper return to activities to help reduce risk of re-injury.
