Low back pain is the most common musculoskeletal condition seen in Australia. Back pain can either be acute (24-48hr duration) subacute or chronic (greater than 3 months) and can be as a result of disc injuries, muscular spasm and facet joint sprains.
Neck pain is a common musculoskeletal condition. Similar to back pain it is important to know what structures and positions are triggering pain, whether it be chronic neck pain, acute neck pain or whiplash.
Shoulder injuries are common especially in sports which require overhead movements such as surfing, swimming, baseball or weightlifting. There are many structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone) which can cause pain in the shoulder.
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 whether it be ligament injuries, meniscus tears or tendon pain.
